Valley Home 4-H members celebrated their final meeting of the year on Tuesday, June 2, with their traditional “end of the year” barbecue! The group met at the Valley Home School old campus, with the Club providing hot dogs and the members bringing either a dessert or side dish. The food was great and there was lots of fun all around. There is excitement in the air as members are beginning to get ready now for the fair this summer.
We understand that Valley Home was very well represented at the recent State Presentation Day. There was also a nice representation by some of our members in the Fashion portion of the program. Everyone who attended the event did a great job. A HUGE thank you is extended to the Hoagland family for not only leading the project, but also getting enough judges so that all of Stanislaus County could compete at this very prestigious event!
