Tis the season ... Christmas in our area comes with wonderful traditions and great blessings! Our Valley Home Community Christmas celebration is just around the corner. Our Oakdale Mustang football players are bringing us a glittering red and gold season; excitement fills the air all around our area. For those of us who are fans of Mustang football (and that would be pretty much all of our community) the excitement of the next few weeks has sugar plums and footballs dancing in our heads! For our Mustang football players they are truly a hard working group of guys who play for each other, they play for their fans and families, their coaches and especially for this community. As a community we are blessed to be a part of this great adventure. This week when the team bus rolls by, let’s make sure our signs are up and our support is in full view! Today I offer a huge Thank You to a very special football mom, Josh Jacobson’s mom, Jennifer. Thank you for the strength, kindness and caring you have instilled in your son Josh over the years. I also send a huge thank you to the man my grandsons fondly call “Big Jake,” better known as Steve Jacobson. In a combined effort Steve and son Josh have shared with many young people the importance of conditioning and strength building. “Big Jake” has taught by example the importance of faith and humility. Cody and Cooper are blessed to have such a great influence in their lives and a special part of our family.
What pride all the parents and families must be feeling in these incredible young players! Go Mustangs!
Please mark your calendar for Saturday, December 9th! This is the date for our Valley Home Old Fashioned Community Christmas Potluck Dinner and Lighted Parade! The parade starts at 5:30 p.m. with tree lighting and dinner immediately after the parade. Rain or shine
A very special visit this past Saturday evening. We had the great pleasure of sharing a marvelous dinner with former Valley Home residents, Debbee, Russell, Bubba and Tayler Denman. The Denman’s now make their home in Texas, but are remembered very fondly by many here in Valley Home. Laughter, good food and good times were shared by all. What a special visit!
As always you may reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Until next time, “Happy Trails to All!”
