Congratulations to George Lyons

George Lyons retired (for real this time) from the Parks and Recreation Department after 15 years of hard work. George arrived to his interview back in 2004 in his baseball uniform after just competing in the Men’s Senior Baseball League World Series. He was obviously a good fit and has been a blessing to the department. George had retired from an extensive recreation career with Mission Viejo Company, the City of Mission Viejo and finally Thousand Trails Campgrounds. We wish him luck and congratulate him on the next phase of his life spending time with his grandchildren.
