Valley Home would like to send a huge “Thank You” to all those who helped to make our 2013 Fall Harvest Festival a wonderful success. Those who donated, those who volunteered and everyone who attended, thank you for making such a nice evening possible. The sights and sounds of the night, along with many hard working folks will long be remembered.

We were excited to have Cheyenne Chrisman with us for the evening. Cheyenne was home visiting from out of state. It was an absolute joy to visit with this delightful young lady. Valley Home is so proud of you Cheyenne!

We also noticed Valley Home School Board candidates Julie Haynes and Chris Hempleman working hard to help make the evening special. Thank you both very much. The thunder from Larry Lopes midnight blue pull truck brought the crowd to a standstill…the roar was so loud it actually shook the ground…what a thrill!

Young and old alike were caught up in the magic of the night when Oakdale Rural Fire lit up the night sky with their blazing lights and loud sirens.

Festival goers were surprised and excited to see the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s K-9 officers arrive. What a treat for all, the night was very special indeed.

A special appreciation goes out to all the Oakdale High students who came and worked so hard all night long. Thank You!

Our Valley Home MAC had a booth with tons of information available to festival goers.

We end this column with a very heartfelt thank you to the “honorary mayor” of Valley Home, Mrs. Laura Burghardt and husband Glenn for their History of Valley Home display.

A note for Valley Home 4-Hers: The November meeting will be at the park. Our 4-H meeting falls on election day and the school is using the gym for our area’s voting location.
