2021 Annual Presentation of an Elk Grove Area Story.
Updated: Sep 10, 2021
On September 26, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. the Linda Mae Mahon Lema Foundation will release on our website the 2021 Annual Presentation of an Elk Grove Area Story.
This year, the story we present is of a world event which, like none other since the Gold Rush, had a colossal effect on Elk Grove. This event was the Vietnam War.
Not only was the community deeply affected by the War at the time, but the cascading effects of the War dramatically and permanently altered the fabric and vibrancy of the area transforming it from an agricultural-based rural community to a thriving City of diverse and vast potential.
We title this chronicle “The Elk Grove / Southeast Asia Story”.
In this Presentation you will hear an array of stories and family histories from the era in the words and voices of these contributors:
Wayne Heintz Story – as told by
Karen Heintz Castelli and Bob Lent
Kathy Ruhl Story – as told by
