It is that time of year once again when our Valley Home students are stretching their legs and toning up their muscles for the school annual Jog-a-Thon on Thursday, March 28th. Students are decorating their own T-shirts again this year. We have received word that prizes will be awarded for the best T-shirt design for both K-3 and 4 thru 8. Additional contests and prizes will also be awarded. Just a reminder that Spring break begins Friday!

Oh, my goodness, there goes that mysterious Bunny hopping by again! Can you believe it, he is carrying a big basket of brightly colored eggs! "Hold on there, Rabbit, where are you heading? What is that you say? You are getting set to help our Valley Home 4-H members with their Annual Easter Egg Hunt being held on the grounds of the Texas Avenue school campus! My goodness, that sounds like a lot of fun! I'll see you there Mr. Bunny!" We are delighted to pass on Mr. Bunny's message, Valley Home 4-H members join in asking you to join them at the Valley Home Community Annual Easter Egg Hunt, on this coming Saturday, March 30th.

We hope that the Valley Home 4-H Fund Raiser Dinner was successful. Your reporter was unable to attend because of illness, however I did contact the chairman so that I could report on the dinner immediately following the event. I cannot report on the success of the event, because I have never received a report. I am well aware of the hard work that goes into planning and hosting these events and believe the workers should receive the credit that is due them.
