  • Wackford Community Blood Drive
    The Elk Grove community can save lives during Blood Donor Day at the Wackford Community Center (9014 Bruceville Rd., Elk Grove) on Friday, June 9 from 8:00am – 7:00pm. Participants will receive an exclusive promo code redeemable at My.BloodSource.org for a FREE California State Fair ticket or a limited edition BloodSource/Blood Centers of the Pacific San Francisco Giants T-shirt!

    Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion. Blood donations can help a patient in need such as John Phillips, a wrestler who recently graduated from Elk Grove High School. An autoimmune disorder called Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura or ITP landed Phillips in the hospital on his 17th birthday. John’s life was turned around thanks to blood donors who helped him get well. Plasma-based medicine was the key to Phillips’ recovery.

    In addition to blood donation opportunities, potential marrow donors ages 18-44 can register for Be The Match® national marrow registry through BloodSource. For more information, please visit bloodsource.org or call Elizabeth Rolli at (916) 453-3045.
    • Dawn Phillips Awesome, glad my son's story can help draw people to this event. He has had 530 donations in his name so far!
  • Disappointed
    I was a member on EG Online for 7+ years. It was great to reach out to the EG community and get feedback and answers. Why was it stopped? Sadly, this site as a replacement to EG Online is worthless.

  • 'Indivisible' Groups
    Anyone know if there are any 'Indivisible' resistance groups organizing in Elk Grove?
    • Richie J What is a indivisible resistance group?
    • Liz terry Hi libby, not sure about the answer... Maybe we can start one? New to elk grove... so why not?
    • LibbyLu Indivisible groups are being organized locally all across the nation, and globally as well. Indivisible is a plan and strategy to resist and oppose our 45th president and the actions of the Republican- dominated Congress.

      Good news, I finally found the Elk Grove Indivisible group, newly becoming organized and already with 200-plus people signed up.

      If anyone is interested in joining, contact morenoj246@gmail.com.

      For info about Indivisible, go to IndivisibleGuide.com.

      Many, many organizations are involved in resistance activities and citizens are contacted with actions to take on a daily basis: writing letters, making phone calls, attending rallies and more.

      In addition to the Women's March last Saturday, I have also attended the PP Pink Out Rally at the Capital last Tuesday, a MoveOn rally at Sen. Harris's office yesterday and a Nurse's rally last Sunday.

  • The Elk Grove Giant Pumpkin Festival
    The Elk Grove Giant Pumpkin Festival welcomes guests of all ages to Elk Grove Regional Park over the first weekend in October. What began in 1994 as a small harvest celebration is now Elk Grove’s largest family festival and attracts over 40,000 guests each year.

    Some of California's heftiest pumpkins will weigh off at the festival. In fact, it is the current World Record holder of the average Top 10 giant pumpkins. The festival has something for everyone with attractions including Major League Eating’s Pumpkin Pie Eating Championship, a pumpkin derby, a pumpkin recipe contest and cooking demonstrations, a scarecrow-making contest, music and entertainment, carnival rides and games, pumpkin food, an art walk, art activities, craft fair, and a race across the lake between giant pumpkin boats!

    The Elk Grove Giant Pumpkin Festival is hosted by the Cosumnes Community Services District (CSD) Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with many sponsors. Admission is free. Parking inside the park is $10. A portion of festival proceeds benefit local youth and service organizations.
  • Pleasant Grove HS Varsity Baseball- What is going On! I am so angry!
    Does anyone have an experience with Pleasant Grove Varsity Baseball coaching? My son played freshman baseball and was coached by a man who regularly screamed profanities, publicly humiliated kids and clearly had favorites included his son who never sat out. It was "daddy ball" at its finest and kids with skills never played. His son however who regularly made errors played every game. I sat on the bench listened to parents complain, and leave in disgust and frustration. When I could no longer stand the situation I made an appointment with the principal thinking he must not know what was going on because a school like Pleasant Grove would not allow such discrimination and inappropriate behavior! The principal listened to my concerns and said he hadn't received any other complaints and dismissed my concerns. Didn't even have the courtesy of getting back to me, and the athletic director didn't even bother to show up at the meeting. My son went out for varsity tryouts. He was cut and told he didn't make the team because he didn't play summer ball. Other more seasoned parents told me he was blackballed because I complained. He went out for summer ball yesterday and was told they already have a team and don't bother coming out for tryouts. I am furious because I feel helpless! The school allows this inappropriate and unfair practice, parent's voices are not being heard, and kids are being bullied by adults. I know of at least six kids who actually changed schools after their freshman year because of this coach. Other parents must have similar stories please share them with me!!!! I need to know I'm not crazy and my kid can't be the only one who has experience the wrath of this coach! My son is a great player who's spirit has been shaken by one man. He is going to be a senior and the damage has been done but that doesn't have to be the case for other players! Parent voices together can make a change. Please send me your stories. It can be anonymous if you like I don't want your son to be blackballed like mine. I am going to post this on every public forum hoping to get parents to speak out.
