LODI COMMUNITY HALL OF FAME INDUCTION

September 01, 2017

In recognition of our decades of services to the City of Lodi, the Diede Family has been inducted into the Lodi Community Hall of Fame. Diede Construction was started in 1978, which has since expanded and evolved into Diede Companies. Diede Companies has donated time, labor and materials to projects such as the Lodi Lake Boathouse, Tokay Peace Garden, Micke Grove Zoo Hospital, Lodi Veterans Memorial, Grape Bowl Press Box, LOEL Center, and the Veterans Memorial at Micke Grove Park. Wayne Diede, Vice President of Diede Construction, Inc. served as a board member for the Micke Grove Zoological Society, where he was president for 4 years. He also worked with the Salvation Army, and sat on the Stockton Builders Exchange's Board of Directors for 12 years.

Steve Diede received the Legacy Award from Assemblyman Jim Cooper; D-Elk Grove, in 2016 to recognize his philanthropic works including serving as a member of the Lodi Memorial Hospital Foundation's Board of Directors since 2008, working with his wife, Bo, to organize events such as Walk For The Health Of It, Summer Fest, and the Dr. Russell B. Steele Memorial Golf Tounrment. Wayne Craig, president and CEO of the Lodi Memorial Hospital Foundation, called Steve & Bo major supporters of the hospital, adding that the family donated 13 plaques to the Tribute Wall located next to the fountain in the hospital's Healing Garden. 

Steve is also a founding board member and current treasurer of the Giving Opportunities To Kids (GOT Kids) Foundation, providing support to children in the Lodi Unified School District. GOT Kids has raised nearly $100,000 annually over the past three years to help fund academic enrichment programs and extracurricular activities. Steve also recently proposed a new program to provide clothing for homeless children.

The Diede Family prepared the following statement regarding their induction into the Lodi Community Hall of Fame:

"We don't know what earned us a spot in the Hall of Fame. Our choices are made to better the community. We are proud of the family. There are a lot of us, and it is sometimes hard to manage, but we all have similar goals and know if we stick together, we are able to make a bigger impact than we can on our own. That is the benefit of being together: We are giving back but making memories at the same time. All of the kids and now grand-kids have been involved in youth and High School Sports. If we weren't coaching, we were being team moms or dads, or sponsoring; maybe all of the above. We have participated in many non-profits that we have been able to watch the fruit of ours and many others' labor flourish: Lodi Memorial, Micke Grove, Salvation Army, Boys and Girls Club, Leadership Lodi, and GOT Kids, all programs that we are proud to have been, and continue to be a part of. Participation has allowed us to meet and get to know so many great people in our community. We are very blessed."

"We are grateful and honored to be recognized by our peers. We are proud of our community, our family, and the many others that we consider family. We appreciate the thousands of others in our community that may not be recognized, but give tirelessly to make these programs available and for the unbelievable benefit they provide so many others."
