Coasters Given as Dinner Mementos
The party favors given out to attendees of the Inaugural Foundation Dinner on October 1st were a unique and touching memento of the evening. Each guest was given a drink coaster which was hand crafted from specially selected hardwoods from naturally downed branches of the Osage Orange, Olive, Valley Oak, Black Locust, Red Willow, Ash and Buckeye trees found on the Mahon Ranch in Elk Grove.
These handpicked wedges of aged wood were emblazoned with the personal livestock brand of the Foundation namesake, Linda Mae Mahon Lema. The brand is identical to that used on the Ranch since 1920 by her father, her brothers and the Mahon Family Partnership.
