The Valley Home News reporter has been asked to put out a special call to old time Valley Home residents or descendants of those residents who may have a shoe box in the closet or a file in the family room or somewhere a special place that holds what is strongly sought by the Valley Home Community Center Board. 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 ...

The redwood picnic tables for the Valley Home Community Center Park have arrived and they are beautiful! Eight of them were handmade by a supplier living in Chinese Camp and this brings to mind an almost unbelievable bit of historical connection. In the early history of this area and before Oakdale became a town with its own post office, the residents here resided in Camp Washington. A search for the location of this site would lead you to Chinese Camp as it was the post office headquarters for this large Enumeration District. So 150 years later the connection is re-kindled ...

Cost Less Market ... What a spectacular trip it is from Valley Home to go grocery shopping. Taking the time to appreciate this trip is something that I have learned to make a priority. Where else can you drive five minutes to go grocery shopping and pass almond orchards with beautiful blossoms, go past Bushwacker's home, watch cattle and horses grazing on lush green pastures, then at the edge of town and right before shopping, pass over the most spectacular bridge! Crossing this beautiful gateway bridge offers you a moment to reflect. Many thousands use this strong and steady passage ...

The joy of seeing these young people as they go from elementary school to high school and now to college is such a true blessing! My visit with Cy came while ...
