The hot weather we have been sweltering in the past couple of weeks seems to have taken a toll on Valley Home activities this past week.

On Saturday cars and pickups lined both sides of the road leading into the Taro Ranch on East Dodds Road and also filled the empty field adjacent to the Taro home. There was excitement in the air as friends and neighbors gathered at the Taro Ranch to join in the birthday festivities, or as the invitations stated "A very special Wild West Hoedown" for one of our favorite people, Tony Taro, who was celebrating his 90th birthday. Preferred attire for the festivities was Country Western, and guests were delighted to oblige.

Our Valley Home Silent Film devotees enjoyed an afternoon of "old time" movie fun on Sunday afternoon as we watched Ronald (Buster Keaton) do his best to win the love of his college days, Mary, who is being pursued by his competition, her jock boyfriend, Jeff, who takes her hostage in her dormitory room and tries to get her to marry him. Mary manages to contact Ronald by telephone, who, in a sudden show of athleticism, sprints to her Dormitory building, pole vaults into her window, and fights off Jeff by throwing household objects at him. Mary agrees to marry ...

We couldn't ask for a nicer day weather-wise than what we enjoyed on Saturday afternoon when volunteers gathered at the Valley Home Community Park for a tree planting. Bud Ferreila drove his truck carrying a power auger and parked next to our Community Park, then went to work digging a spot for the planting of the Colorado Blue Spruce which is now the official Valley Home Community Christmas Tree. The tree was a gift from Morris Nursery which was donated to the park last December where it quickly became one of the highlights of the Valley Home annual 4-H ...

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.
