We offer an important reminder to Valley Home residents that if you have not already done so be sure to plan to attend the Valley Home Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) this evening at 6:30 p.m. A STARS volunteer for the Farm Watch program will speak about Owner Applied Numbers for the Farm Watch program. It is hoped that all the residents who have purchased Farm Watch signs in the past and those that are planning on purchasing the signs in the future will be able to attend. The meeting will be at the Valley Home School library on Texas Avenue. You do not want to miss this meeting.
