The Valley Home Community Center Park has moved ahead another step with the installation of the electric line from the newly installed power pole near the pavilion to the well and historic sphere-shaped water tank. In addition, the installation of four ballards around the well and water tank achieved another check off on the list of items to accomplish before the next inspection. After the inspection the trench for the electric line will be filled in and work will begin on another segment of the project.

Residents are reminded that the Valley Home Community Center board of directors still has an unfilled vacancy and that someone who has an interest in serving on the board and assisting with the establishment of the community’s memorial park can contact me at  HYPERLINK "mailto:burghart@inreach.com" burghart@inreach.com or 847-5822 and I will forward your name and phone number to the board. Think about it.
