Help Out The Elk Grove Lions Club

The Elk Grove Lions Club has done much for the community and now is the time for the community to return the favor….Last weekend someone stole the EGLC’s trailer and emptied out $20,000 worth of cooking equipment that was used for their many fundraisers from pancake breakfasts to spaghetti feeds……Councilman Steve Detrick and others are urging the community to help out with a donation to buy new equipment for the Lions Club ----just go to www.ElkGroveLionsFoundation.org to donate.

One of my favorite quotes, "Don't look back. Something may be gaining on you."  Our Folsom mamas are certainly not looking back as they walk/jog and eat these hills for breakfast!  Do you remember the first time you looked at that hill, then were asked to jog up?  You were probably thinking..."can I do this?"  Yes, you can.

If you find yourself struggling with a goal or your New Year Resolution, look at the challenge not as a setback, but as an opportunity to discover who you are.  Reset, reboot, start today.  Yes, you can.

EGPD Crackdown On Underage Drinking

Elk Grove Police are cracking down on underage drinking with what’s called “Decoy shoulder tap and minor decoy operations”-------in other words they are citing adults who make alcohol purchases for minors……..Two weekends this year they’ve employed the operation with a couple of arrests…….Under the program, a minor under the direct supervision of a peace officer will stand outside a liquor or convenience store and ask patrons to buy them alcohol……  The minor indicates in some way he or she is underage and cannot purchase the alcohol---- If the adults agree to purchase alcohol for the minor officers then arrest and cite them for furnishing alcohol to the minor----- The penalty for furnishing alcohol to a minor is a minimum $1000 fine and 24 hours of community service.
