As 2013 comes to an end we reflect on the many things that make living in a small community so special. Neighbors are more than neighbors, they become family. They enjoy the good times with you and they suffer through the bad.

What a special night it was in Valley Home! Stars lit up the night sky as car after car pulled into the Valley Home School parking lot. Friendly holiday greetings passed between old friends and new. The magic of this Christmas season was everywhere. This incredible evening was made possible by the hard work of Bonnie Gellerman, Tom Cassinetto, and the staff of the after school program.

Our 2013 Grand Marshal, Tony Taro, reports having a great time on Friday evening. Christmas in Valley Home brought out much of the community to enjoy a wonderful night filled with lots of fun, friendship, and very good food! A very touching part of the evening came as everyone gathered round the tree and joined together in caroling as Wyatt Wucherer threw the switch that brought our community tree to life. The little tree glistened with lights all aglow, it seemed almost magical…what a special evening! The night was frosty cold outside as the warmth of our school gym ...

Valley Home 4-Hers held their annual Christmas party this week. It was filled with lots of laughter and tons of fun. The 4-Hers each brought a white elephant item to exchange…what a bunch of fun they had! During the evening they enjoyed Christmas cookies and holiday punch. While they were busy playing games and enjoying refreshments they were stunned to hear a loud crash, almost as if someone had landed on top of the building. Before anyone could dash outside to see what all of the clatter was about the door flew open and in came a jolly old ...

The Valley Home Hawks welcomed the Knights Ferry football and volleyball teams this past Friday. Both teams played great and had a great time. Once again Mr. Mike had the field looking great even adding red, white and blue in the end zones. Valley Home would like to thank Knights Ferry for making the trip to play the Hawks. We certainly need to mention the super snack bar run by school staff. It's amazing how many hats one must wear in a small school setting. The day would not have happened without the great coaches from both schools...a ...

It seemed more like a party among friends rather than a weekend yard sale! Our Valley Home Community Park was alive with friends, neighbors and folks who quickly became friends! This past Saturday the park played host to a very well-attended yard sale. The event raised much needed funds to maintain the park throughout the year. The day started off with a visit from TV station CW31 from Sacramento. TV reporter 'Charity' did a superb job of bringing excitement to what is to become an annual event for the park. The day was made more special with a visit from ...

Last week we stopped what we were doing to remember those lives lost on September 11, 2001. A horrible tragedy that changed our world forever. Words cannot express the sadness and overwhelming anger that touched each one of us during one of our country's darkest hours. We cannot change the events of that day, but we can remember those lost and the many public servants who died trying to save them. The date that marks this sad day has passed and as we look toward a brighter future, we honor those who continue to serve our nation's people ...

The dreaded picture... When I started writing this column over a year ago, I really, really did not want a picture of myself printed! I've always enjoyed reading the other columns in The Leader and appreciated the pictures that went along with them. It gives readers a chance to associate names with faces... I guess that I just was not sure a picture could be taken that wouldn't make my family and friends run for the hills! Even after Oakdale Leader Editor Marg Jackson asked my daughter to send a picture of me in for the column, it ...
