 Over 20 years ago I relocated to Elk Grove, California to find better opportunities and raise my family. One of the main reasons my wife and I chose Elk Grove was for the great quality of life offered in the community.

As a family, we decided to take an active role in Elk Grove. Together, we soon found that being involved in our community was so much more rewarding then just residing here. Our decision to engage in our community changed our lives forever.

We became involved in many segments of the Elk Grove community including family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and our business. Our community involvement is integrated into our everyday lives with church, school, sports, civic involvement and more.

The message I want to share is that the gifts my family and I have received from giving back to the Elk Grove community far outweigh any contributions we’ve made over the years.

I challenge you and your families to become active members in our community by engaging and inspiring positive change, whether it is a few hours a day, week, month, or year.

A few of the volunteer needs in our community are the local churches,Senior Center of Elk Grove, Teen Center USA, Elk Grove Unified School District, Police Activity League, Elk Grove Police Department’s Volunteers, Elk Grove Police Department Neighborhood Watch Program, Strauss Festival, Cosumnes Community Service District (CCSD) Parks and Fire Department, Elk Grove Food Bank Services, all the various recreation and competitive boys/girls sporting teams and service groups like Lions and Rotary.

2012 is an election year and local elections impact your life more than any other elections in the country. So you can also get involved as a candidate or candidate supporter with the upcoming local races for Elk Grove City Council, Elk Grove Unified School District School Board, and CCSD Board and be a well informed and educated voter.

Choose your passion, get involved and stay involved!
