Welcome to 100 Years of Lodi!
In October 1906 a petition signed by 85 people living
in the town of Lodi was presented
to the County Board of Supervisors requesting that an election
be held to incorporate Lodi and elect a five member Board of
Trustees, a Clerk, a Treasurer, and a Marshal. The election
took place in November – and on December 6, 1906 the
incorporation documents were filed with the Secretary of State.
Centennial in 2006 presents a rare opportunity to reflect on the
past 100 years... to celebrate the
City, build a sense of community, reinforce its identity, and
pay tribute to our roots, our home, and our hope for the future.
We plan to have a year long Centennial celebration of both
City and community sponsored events
and strongly encourage all citizens, businesses, and civic
organizations to get involved. Consider adopting the Centennial
theme for your annual events throughout 2006 or create a new
community activity or program to bring awareness to this
significant moment in our history.
Sponsors and volunteers are
needed at all levels to make Lodi’s Centennial celebration live
up to the expectations that those first 85 petitioners likely
had for Lodi in October 1906.
Please contact the City Clerk’s
Office if you would like to be a part of Lodi’s Centennial
From The Mayor...
Mayor of the "Zinfandel Capital of the World," I would like to
invite everyone to join us in celebrating Lodi's Centennial.
On December 6, 2006, Lodi turns 100 years old. The City of
Lodi, along with many community volunteers, organizations, and
sponsors, will host events and activities throughout the year,
leading up to the anniversary celebration in December.
- Susan Hitchcock, Mayor of Lodi
