Our Valley Home young people have been making good use of the nice weather we enjoyed for a while. We received word that Melissa Koppinger has been enjoying an opportunity to play some golf. Way to go Melissa! Melissa's twin sister, Melinda is having an absolute awesome season playing softball at Oakdale High School. Valley Home is proud of you both!
Time flies! The year has been a busy one for our Valley Home 4-H members! Our 4-H president, Halley Smith reminds members that Record books are due at the June meeting. Halley states that there are no exceptions. Members must turn in a record book on time to be considered a member in good standing. You must be a member in good standing to enter and show at the County Fair, and have your current 4-H year count. Primary members do not need to complete a record book but they may complete a primary record. See Sally Chrisman for help ...
The weather turned out great on Saturday for the 4-H sponsored Easter Egg Hunt and a good number of egg hunters showed up for the fun event! Our 4-H Easter Bunny helpers did a great job hiding the eggs on the grounds of the "old" school and the weather couldn't have been better for the hunt. The eggs were dyed and decorated by the 4-H'ers in Chairman Jenna Heaton and Cody Bartholomew's barn and afterward the kids all enjoyed a marshmallow roast out by the fire.

The meeting will have a speaker from STARS who will speak on the Farm Watch Program. All interested residents need to be there. You could save some valuable property if you follow their suggestions.

It is always nice to hear from former Valley Home residents and catch up on their current activities. We were delighted to recently receive a greeting from former Walnut Avenue residents Narcy and Bernie Giva who send a warm "Hello" to all their Valley Home friends and former neighbors.
Our Valley Home area was host to one of the most beautiful almond blossom displays we have enjoyed for several years. Those trees on Pioneer Avenue near Highway 120 were exceptionally pretty and seemed to last the longest.
We are starting this week's column off with an exciting news item that arrived too late to include in last week's column. This news was sent to us by proud parents, Synthia and Dennis Jones.

This week of February finds residents enjoying a fabulous array of blossoms, appearing almost overnight on all the almond trees in our Valley Home area. Not to be out done in beauty, blossoming pear and ornamental plum, add additional color here and there throughout our community. Just one of the reasons we enjoy living in our Valley Home community.

The items are those to be used on the proper information-related sign on the nearly completed new community park. One of the major tasks yet to finish is the project for the sign that will identify the park, but more importantly ...

Valley Home 'Green Thumbs' were delighted to take advantage of this week's sunny weather and warmer temperatures to get outside and enjoy a little garden work to work off some of the winter blahs. Your reporter remembers when her family first moved to Valley Home the area there seemed to be nothing but fog, fog, fog, causing her to lament to family members, "Doesn't the sun ever shine here?" The past week's foggy days brought back those memories, however the sunny days which followed quickly dispelled those thoughts and it was outside to enjoy a wonderful day ...
