Excitement builds for Elk Grove running event all to benefit youth sports scholarships

Excitement builds for Elk Grove running event all to benefit youth sports scholarships

As a mom of two boys, Tamra Rickman felt she needed to do more than just remind her sons to do their chores and finish their homework. She wanted something for them to do as family. She encouraged her sons to take up sports and thought there would be plenty of benefits to them being on a team.

“It gave them a sense of responsibility. It gave us something to talk about. Sports also teach time management, teamwork and being prepared,” said Rickman, whose sons have played soccer and baseball.

The challenge was figuring out how to pay for all the expenses associated with playing a team sport. From the registration fees, to the uniforms and gear, and in some cases, the cost of travelling to games and events, the price to play can be in the hundreds or thousands of dollars.

But that’s where the Elk Grove Youth Sports Foundation(EGYSF) comes in.

All Aboard…Steam Train Rides Return to the  Sacramento Southern Railroad on 4/11!

Soon after the opening weekend of the 32nd consecutive season of excursion train rides on the Sacramento Southern Railroad on Easter weekend (April 4 & 5, 2015), California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum are pleased to announce vintage steam locomotive Granite Rock No. 10 will return to service on April 11, 2015.  First introduced in May 1997 by the California State Railroad Museum, Granite Rock No. 10 was taken out of service in 2011 for extensive boiler repairs during which time diesel locomotives pulled the excursion trains. Granite Rock No. 10 is an oil-fired steam engine built by the H.K. Porter Co. for the U.S. Army in 1942.
