Valley Home residents will enjoy a busy fun filled week, beginning with our Red Hat ‘Fun Lovin’ Ladies. Our Red Hatters enjoy selecting a different restaurant each month to visit and enjoy lunch while attending to club business and formulating plans for various projects and activities. Wednesday of this week finds our ladies sampling delicious Italian cuisine at the Olive Garden Restaurant in Modesto. Wherever our Red Hatters choose to dine, you can be certain that in addition to partaking of great food, the ladies will also have a great time! Next month their plans are to pay a visit to Perko’s Café in Riverbank for their meeting site, and you can be certain their Red Hats will create a show.
There will be lots of fun and excitement right here in Valley Home on Friday, March 4th for those attending the Third Annual “Let it Roll” Bunko Night hosted by the Valley Home School Parent Teacher Club. The fun begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Valley Home School Gym, located at 13231 Pioneer Ave. Tickets are priced at $20 and advance purchase is suggested as there is limited seating for the event.
Dinner consists of Santa Maria-style barbecue, with chicken, steaks and fixings for fajitas and salads. Great food to start off a fun filled evening and a nice opportunity to visit with friends and neighbors before the “rolling” begins at 7:30 p.m. PTC members have been busy gathering door prizes for the event including “theme” gift baskets such as wine, hair care, manicure/pedicure items, Sky High Sports tickets, chocolates, Gold Canyon Candles and more. Special prizes of grocery and gas cards will be awarded for first through third place. Proceeds from this Valley Home PTC sponsored fundraiser will be used to help pay for student field trips, the science fair, teacher supplies and more.
For those of you who are not into playing Bunko, we have received word from our Valley Home 4-H reporter Garret Bryhni who tells us that the club will be having a “Chicken Dinner & Silent Auction” on Saturday, March 5th from 5 to 8 p.m. The event will be held in the Valley Home School Multi-Purpose Room where you can enjoy dinner there with friends and neighbors or order take-out to enjoy at home. Tickets are priced at $10 for adults and $8 for children age 10, and under, and may be purchased from any Valley Home 4-H member. Garret tells us that the event is a fundraiser, not only for the club treasury, but also for 4-H members and families going on the Disneyland trip in April. The event not only supports the Disneyland trip, but all club activities, such as family fun nights, community potluck and parade and many other events. Saturday’s dinner will include BBQ chicken, salad, baked beans, roll, dessert and choice of coffee or lemonade.
Valley Home 4-H members would like to wish Mike and Karen Monschein a very Happy 20th Anniversary this month!
This reporter has received some hard to believe news from the Valley Home Community Center board members. In a recent issue of the VH news we sent out a request for a photograph of the historic Community Center clubhouse for use in the upcoming memorial sign at the new park. With the history that one can read about the clubhouse and how many celebrations and varied activities that were held at the site, it is very difficult to accept the fact that no one has a photo of the building. The clubhouse was built almost a hundred years ago and to imagine that no one took a picture of a party, wedding, meeting, graduation or some activity. PLEASE check your photo files, the shoebox in the closet, the drawer in the dining room or wherever you store your pictures of old. There must be a photo showing the outside of the building with or without persons hidden somewhere in Valley Home. If you find one, please let me know at email@example.com. Thank you, the Park Committee will be happy.
