What a surprise and delight to wake up on Tuesday morning and discover a light blanket of snow on the ground here in Valley Home! Running late for an appointment in Oakdale, your reporter couldn't stop to snap a photo, however on returning home we were delighted to find it had not all melted during our absence and were able to still capture some of it on film. No long drive to the mountains to enjoy a snow scene, just a walk outside the back door!

A Memorial service was held on October 7th at the River Oak Church in Oakdale for Ed Tribby. Ed actively served the Oakdale community as an Equipment Operator for Oakdale City Public Works.

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 ...
