VALLEY HOME NEWS for June 9, 2009

Last week a copy of an email was received from Melinda Koppinger, the departing editor of the Valley Home 4-H Bug asking members running for office in the upcoming fall 4-H club to submit letters telling what office they are seeking and why. This week I would like to share with Valley Home News column readers these letters.

There is action at the Valley Home Community Center pavilion site, things are happening. Last week's activity was the building of the concrete forms for the floor of the pavilion and the pouring of the concrete. There was a large group of concrete workers who demonstrated their skill and by early afternoon there lay before us a beautiful concrete floor that had a smooth as glass rim border and a center section that gave the appearance of etched rockwork. A sidewalk was also laid from the edge of the pavilion across the soon to be grass covered dirt to ...

The multipurpose room at Valley Home School became a western setting on Wednesday evening, May 19th as a background for the eighth grade graduation ceremony. Western saddles and blankets displayed on a fence and containers of garden plants provided a setting on one side of the graduate seating, with benches, cowboy hats, lariats and colorful plants decorating the opposite side of the setting. As the first notes of the traditional Pomp and Circumstance by Elgar sounded, the procession of graduates advanced to the ceremony site.

We always enjoy sharing in the joy of birthday festivities for one of our favorite Valley Home residents. Hazel Henry had a wonderful day from morning to night enjoying festivities hosted by members of her family who gathered to help her celebrate her birthday on May 9th. Hazel tells us she had "a wonderful birthday and Mother's Day all in the same day." She tells us that her son-in-law and daughter, Frank and Patsy Carpenter came from Layton, Nevada, and cooked a delicious turkey dinner to celebrate the occasion.

This week's Valley Home News came close to not being. We had a power failure here at the ranch lasting for four days that could not be immediately remedied, and in fact is still not working. A very nice PG&E worker came to our assistance first and turned off the electricity so that repairs could be made. Fortunately, we have a wonderful friend who is an electrician and general handyman, who came to our aid and in addition to working many hours installing new wiring, poles and gadgets also generously loaned us the use of his gas generator ...

Valley Home News for April 4, 2009

Gray skies and cold temperature didn't dampen the enthusiasm of the children who turned out on Saturday to participate in the annual Easter Egg Hunt hosted by our Valley Home 4-H members. MaryBeth Carpenter did a wonderful job of chairing this fun event. MaryBeth handed out beautiful chocolate bunnies to the winners and also gave out delightful gift packs to those who won for having found the most eggs. MaryBeth had everyone count their eggs at the close of the hunt, and it was discovered that the average basket held approximately 35 to 40 eggs. Valley Home is proud ...
