School is off to a great start! We understand that MoHawk the school mascot is currently residing with Ms. Vuyovich's 1st grade class. They won the mascot in the first week of the weekly Hawk Spirit Wear competition. Will the rivalry with Ms. Davis' second graders be rekindled this year? Or will another grade come on strong this year? Stay tuned. If you would like to purchase Valley Home Hawk T-shirts, sweatshirts or adult zipped hooded sweatshirts so you or your children can also participate in Spirit Fridays, call Michelle at 595-4071.

We enjoyed a recent opportunity to meet and visit with W.C. Koch, a cousin of Cindy Fleischer, a former long time resident of our Valley Home community, who dropped by to bring us up to date on the Fleischer family activities. Cindy and Chuck now reside at Dardanelle, where she and Chuck own a grocery store, gas station and lodgings. The couple were always quite active in our Valley Home, especially with our community and Volunteer Firefighter activities before moving up to their current location.

Your reporter was unable to visit the Fair and see our 4-H'ers in action, however, one of our readers sent me some E-mail photos of the heifers being shown by Jennifer Schaefle, Gracie Azevedo and Justin Azevedo. The smiles on our 4-H'ers faces really brightened my day and made up for not being able to attend the event myself. The smiles just radiated as the threesome displayed their animals for the Judges. Gracie was the recipient of 2nd place overall showmanship and Justin received 5th place in overall showmanship. Jennifer received a 5th place award in dairy cattle ...

What an exciting weekend for our Valley Home 4-H'ers who attended the Stanislaus County Fair.

Garret named his animal "All That" and his entry came away with the title of Supreme Champion Market Hog, and thanks to the efforts of "Friends of Garret" he received $41.00 a pound, $11,152, for his 272-pound hog.

We received word from Tammie Smith that our Valley Home 4-H'ers are currently all busy getting ready for the Stanislaus County Fair. Tammie reminds us that with the ending of the Oakdale Junior Livestock Boosters which helped purchase the market animals, many kids are without buyers for their animals at the Fair, this year. If anyone is interested in buying an animal or helping a 4H'er they should contact Tammie at 604-6942.

The dreaded picture... When I started writing this column over a year ago, I really, really did not want a picture of myself printed! I've always enjoyed reading the other columns in The Leader and appreciated the pictures that went along with them. It gives readers a chance to associate names with faces... I guess that I just was not sure a picture could be taken that wouldn't make my family and friends run for the hills! Even after Oakdale Leader Editor Marg Jackson asked my daughter to send a picture of me in for the column, it ...

It's fair time again! Many of us have special memories of attending the county fair in our youth. What great times were had at the fair! The brightly colored Ferris wheel was always my favorite as I was never brave enough for the faster rides. For others it was the tilt-a-whirl...spinning faster and faster until before you knew it, it was spinning you rather than you spinning it. It is wildly fun and for some they can't get enough of it. Whatever your ride of choice the county fair is always a fun time for all! Remember ...
