Valley View Cooperative is 20 Years Old!

20th Anniversary of Valley View Senior Cooperative

Valley View Co-op members know how to party. The dining room was elegant with fresh red roses, votive candles, silver chargers and stemware when they celebrated the 20th anniversary of the co-op recently. President Diane Johnson welcomed the celebrants with a champagne toast. Many were acknowledged for their participation in life at Valley View, notably the 19 original residents who have lived there for 20 years, former and current presidents, board members, committee chairpersons and all who have ever served on a committee.

A memory was shared of the first official gathering of prospective members a year before the grand opening. Early buyers were invited to bring a small sample of soil from their current homes, and those were symbolically mixed with soil from the new location.

A musical group from Valley View sang two songs about living in a co-op, Including “I’ve Been Workin’ in the Co-op” and the following:

"O give me a home that is carefree and warm
And I don’t have to shovel the snow
Or mow the lawn or pay for repairs,
And my friends are just down the hall.

(Chorus) Home at Valley View where committees take care of it all,
Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And my friends are just down the hall.

I’m glad that I came, not still on the wait list,
And my share price goes up every year.
Where my birthday brings cards from my friends all around,
And we have the best staff of all."
