What’s happening in Elk Grove this week, May 30, 2023

Honor Military Members with a Street Named in their Honor
May is Military Appreciation Month. Not only do we pause to remember the sacrifice and service of those who gave all, but the month also holds other anniversaries and events including Military Spouse Appreciation Day and Armed Forces Day. Elk Grove is home to more than 9,000 military veterans. The Veteran and Public Safety Street Naming Program accepts nominations year-round to honor exemplary service members for future street name use. By naming a city street in their honor, we hope to promote public awareness of the individual and show our appreciation for their outstanding contributions. Learn more.
