There's always something happening in Water Valley
News: Well the leaves are turning, and so is the weather! I hope everyone enjoyed the fantastic summer we had, I know I sure did!! The schedule is back on for the events that we had on hold over the summer; cribbage is back Monday nights at the school, and the coffee Thursdays are back into full swing!
Here is a recap of the incredible summer festivities in our little hamlet;
First of all, a great big thank-youto Heather Agnew, Terri Coutts & Bob Benary for all of their tremendous work organizing all of the festivities and the volunteers for this year's Water Valley Days! Thanks for your efforts, we wouldn't have these fun-filled weekends without the support or our local community, and it wouldn't happen at ALL without someone taking the lead! Also, thank-you to all of the volunteers and the vendors that participated this year. We had a great turnout and lots of people visiting us for the weekend.
