7.24.2022 Mayor’s Message

Hello Folks,

  • Wednesday this week is Crazy Daze in Valley City.  Come uptown for fun, merchandise displayed on the street and numerous food options.
  • August 4th is the opening day of football practice, can you believe it’s that time already!  There will be many nice days before cold weather sets in so get out of the house, enjoy the fresh air of summer and our beautiful community.
  • Every year there are dogs, cats and bicycles lost.  Please license your pets and bicycles so, if lost, authorities can identify and return them safely to you.  A bicycle license is only $3.00, which is pretty cheap insurance to enhance chances of recovering your property.
  • Last Thursday’s Summer Nights on Central and the Valley City Parks & Recreation’s Barbeque Cook-off made for a fun filled evening.  Good food, good weather and good music.  Yea, great job everybody!
  • Next Thursday, 4:30 to 7:00 PM, is Valley City Parks & Recreation’s “Safety Night in the Park”.  In previous years, VCPD, VCFD, Barnes Co. Sheriff’s Dept., Barnes Co. Ambulance and the USACE/Park Rangers have displayed equipment and shared insight for all. In addition, there will be music, food and fun for the whole family including “Grammas” &“Grandpas”.
  • The caulking in our shower was in dire need of replacement so I “took a swing at it”, WOW!  To you folks who are good at those types of projects, I am truly envious.  I am not any good at them and it was quite a struggle at best.  It had the makings of a cartoon!!
  • Thanks to all who helped with topics & proofing again this week.
  • “Be a buddy not a bully.  It’s important to treat others how you would want to be ideally treated.”                                                                                                                  (Always Kind Inc.)
  • Blessings, Respect, Kindness and Prayers,
