Park District gives new life to closed school

Park District gives new life to closed school

Folsom Cordova Unified School District recently faced the closure of two of their Elementary schools in Rancho Cordova.  Rather than let the facility sit idle, Cordova Recreation and Park District approached the school district about allowing the use of the space for community events and classes.  In a unique and cooperative arrangement, these two public agencies have entered into a long term lease allowing the Park District use of the facility as a new community center, while retaining ownership of the land and facility by the school district for future use as a school.  A low cost, 25 year lease has been negotiated, allowing both agencies to walk away with a win; the Folsom Cordova Unified School District will not have an empty building to attract vandalism and theft, and Cordova Recreation and Park District gains some much needed space

Our love for the American River inspired last year, alone, 2028 volunteers with 11,381 pounds of trash collected and 7,004 pounds of recyclables over the course of 47 miles of riverbanks as they were cleaned!  And, this was accomplished in a short three hours.

Sacramento communities rise to the occasion for each other as so many nonprofit organizations can attest.   We are not afraid to roll up our sleeves, physically, emotionally and when we can, monetarily to show the pride we

Thor, a brindle Boxer, couldn’t have been more excited. As he ran towards the water’s edge, he suddenly realized he was on a smooth piece of granite. Thor couldn’t stop sliding, right into the frigid water rushing underneath the Rainbow Bridge from Folsom Lake. His elderly owner’s helplessly watched Thor struggle to hold his paws on the slippery granite.

At the Folsom Police Department, officers were just preparing to leave the station for the cover watch when dispatchers received a frantic call from a by stander on the adjacent walk bridge. Dispatch quickly sent an animal control officer to the bridge to assist.

Officer Rob Challoner was just leaving the station when he heard the call.
