Valley Home News Week of January 1, 2014

As 2013 comes to an end we reflect on the many things that make living in a small community so special. Neighbors are more than neighbors, they become family. They enjoy the good times with you and they suffer through the bad.

Our 2013 Grand Marshal, Tony Taro, reports having a great time on Friday evening. Christmas in Valley Home brought out much of the community to enjoy a wonderful night filled with lots of fun, friendship, and very good food! A very touching part of the evening came as everyone gathered round the tree and joined together in caroling as Wyatt Wucherer threw the switch that brought our community tree to life.

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. While they were busy playing games and enjoying refreshments they were stunned to hear a loud crash, almost as if someone had landed on top of the building. Before anyone could dash outside to see what all of the clatter was about the door flew open and in came a jolly old ...

It seemed more like a party among friends rather than a weekend yard sale! Our Valley Home Community Park was alive with friends, neighbors and folks who quickly became friends!

The day started off with a visit from TV station CW31 from Sacramento. TV reporter 'Charity' did a superb job of bringing excitement to what is to become an annual event for the park. The day was made more special with a visit from ...

Another year has gone by and for many of us 2014 brought changes good and bad into our lives. For some the joy and happiness of a wonderful event, for others the past year brought sorrow and heartbreaking sadness. Over the years I've come to realize that there are definitely "seasons" throughout our lives. It has taken me a lifetime to understand that truly my life has had many different seasons. I look back on the season of my youth, of marriage and family, softball, football, cheerleading, rodeo events, our family would also see family and friends off to ...

Thanksgiving ... a time for us to bow our heads and be thankful! Throughout the year it is easy to get so caught up in our day to day busy lives that we tend to overlook being grateful for each day.
