Valley Home News for January 9, 2013

POSTED January 8, 2013 9:50 p.m.

We received word that Cooper Bartholomew had a great time celebrating his sixth birthday on New Year’s Day. Cooper celebrated with friends and family on New Year’s Eve. A special treat for Cooper that evening was hearing Austin Dickens and Luke Pouncy entertain by playing the guitar during the evening!

The Heaton and Mullins family would like to thank all of you that have called to check in on Jenna’s progress following her surgery. Family members appreciate your concern very much. We are told that Jenna had surgery on both feet right after Christmas and is doing really well. Prior to the surgery, two of Jenna’s closest friends took her on a trip up to the snow, which was one of the things Jenna really wanted to do before surgery. To top off the fun day in the snow, the friends brought enough snow back home with them and made snow ice cream for everyone. Jenna is hoping to be back in school by late February or early March at the latest. We all wish you a speedy recovery, Jenna!

Another special treat for Jenna and her cousin, Cody, was a visit from Army PFC Andrew Schlegel of Knights Ferry. Andrew was home on leave from Fort Benning, Georgia, where he is currently stationed. It was great having an opportunity to visit with PFC Schlegel. The Valley Home community is so proud of you and appreciates your service to our country!

You can feel the excitement in the air as our Valley Home 4-H’ers gear up and get ready for fundraising events during the next few months in preparation for their annual trip to Disneyland! For the trip this year we are told that the 4-H’ers will be staying overnight. Everyone is super excited and wishes to thank Christina Barretto for all her hard work in putting this trip together!

Good friends Nancy Osmundson and Lisa Jones had a chance meeting last month and the two old friends realized after losing touch, that they now live less than a mile apart here in Valley Home. What a great way to start the New Year!

We have received some very disturbing news from several Valley Home residents reporting shots fired and someone banging on the side of their houses during the past week or two. The Sheriff’s department has been alerted and their response was prompt. The officers caution people to continue to report the incidents. The Valley Home residents wish to thank the officers for their support and with continued alertness we will settle this problem.
