Construction underway for magnet school, joint-use library in Lemon Grove by Rick Griffin

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

Construction has commenced on a new magnet school and joint-use library in Lemon Grove. The dual project involves modernizing Lemon Grove Middle School into a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) magnet school; and building a new 12,759-square-foot library with a community room, computer lab, children’s space, teen area and patio. The library will be jointly operated by the Lemon Grove School District and the San Diego County Library. The new magnet school and joint-use library is scheduled to be completed in 2013. The $10.3 million project is funded by Proposition W, a $28 million bond measure passed by voters in 2008.
