A report of the July 21 Valley Home MAC meeting tells us that the CHP Officer at the council meeting reported that he had issued five traffic citations in the early morning during the month just ended. Otherwise it had been quiet. The Lieutenant from the Sheriff's Department reported that there had been a minimum of activity in the Valley Home area. He passed along the watch commander's telephone number, 525-7188, in the event a resident had an incident to report or had a department question.

Valley Home residents enjoyed a quiet Fourth of July this year with picnic luncheons and visiting friends gathering together to watch the annual Fireworks display over Woodward Reservoir. Valley Home residents are in a fortunate position to enjoy the colorful displays lighting the sky over Woodward without having to leave their own back yards. Just another of the many reasons that makes our Valley Home area such a special place to live.

From all appearances, it would seem that there was a mass exodus from our Valley Home community this past week with residents seeking the cooler breezes of both the ocean and the foothills. For those of us who stayed home and braved the heat, the community seemed unusually quiet, with almost no traffic to speak of.

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.
