At one time 22 vehicles were seen parked along dark Pioneer Ave. in front of the park and in the school parking lot.

Attendance was high on Saturday for the Valley Home PTC sponsored Harvest Festival. There was lots to see and do for the attending crowd. It was wonderful to see so many smiles on our children's faces as they played football toss, bobbed for donuts, raced tricycles, got their faces painted, tried their hand at dropping clothespins into a milk bottle, a lollipop pull and the excitement of being a lucky winner in the cake walk and more! The Cogburn family left many visitors with chills and thrills after visiting their spooky haunted house!

The Bryhni family, who are all big Giants fans, traveled to San Francisco this past weekend. Kathy, Brooke, Sierra and Garrett enjoyed a tremendous outing by the Giants and also appreciated the opportunity to be part of such a moving tribute to 9/11. Maybe the family should go to more games as it seems to have brought luck to the team by the Bay!
