Valley View seeking donations


At Valley View, residents enjoyed many activities throughout the week. The Activity Department offers a wide variety of activities each week to meet the residents’ interests, as well as the physical, mental, and psychological well-being of each resident.

Soon, Brenda Zeiger and I will be going shopping for resident Christmas presents. Any donations from individuals or organizations in the valley would be greatly appreciated.

We will be having our annual resident Christmas party on Thursday, Dec. 20, at 5 p.m. Family members of residents, volunteers, and friends of Valley View are invited to attend this holiday event. Santa Claus will be coming to pass out presents to residents.
