St. Francis High School holds record breaking food drive

St. Francis High School holds record breaking food drive

Elk Grove Food Bank and Sacramento Emergency Foodlink got a big boost from the St. Francis High School student body, which collected 131,216 cans and packages of nonperishable food items, breaking last year’s food drive record by 30,000 items.

Each fall St. Francis High School’s Homecoming festivities involve numerous activities designed to build class spirit and unity, from pseudo-sports competitions to creating elaborate, theme-based decorations, skits, dances, songs and cheers. The annual Food Drive is part of the competition among the classes and serves as an amazing display of the power of young women to optimize their resources and serve their community.

Cal Expo to pay tribute to September 11

Cal Expo to pay tribute to September 11

Cal Expo officials announced there will be a day of  reflection to honor victims of September 11, 2001 at the California State Fair September 11 Memorial Plaza located on the fairgrounds in Sacramento.

The Plaza will be open to the general public at 8 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, September 11, the eleventh anniversary of the attack on the United States. Parking at Cal Expo this day will be free as well as admission to the memorial.

The construction of the Cal Expo memorial began a year after the attack, when Cal Expo board member Larry Davis personally acquired and donated to Cal Expo 125,000 pounds of wreckage from the World Trade Center. A massive I-beam extracted from Ground Zero, which had been a horizontal support beam from the North Tower, was among the debris.
