The fabulous Memoirs Group at Valley View Senior Cooperative

There is an extremely wonderful group at Valley View Cooperative who for years has been meeting and sharing stories about themselves—stories from their youth, sagas of favorite vacations, narratives of their first job, how they met their husband, tales of their grandkids, and so on. Some have been recording accounts of their family for decades. The Memoirs group has been meeting once a month. Visitors are welcome and encouraged to come again with a story of their own.

Famous Dave's Lunch With Friends From Valley View Co-op

A bevy of women carpooled to a local Famous Dave’s today for their Wednesday lunch special of shredded pork or chicken sandwiches and beef brisket sandwiches. It was a great time of visiting and laughing over delicious food. It’s so nice being retired and having the time to eat a leisurely meal over great conversation. This event was open for anyone who wanted to attend.

Updates On Our Property

One of the beautiful things at Valley View is the care given to keep our property well maintained and updated. Last year our main lobby was updated and new carpeting was installed in all of the public areas, including the first floor hallways. This summer new carpeting was installed on the second, third and fourth floor hallways. Any weak spots were repaired before the new carpet went down. It looks fresh and stylish.

Valley View Coop Garden Produces!

Many residents at Valley View are avid gardeners. For those who are, we have raised garden beds, and each summer it is fun to walk among the beds to see how the vegetables and flowers are flourishing. Popular vegetables are tomatoes, green beans, peppers, and cucumbers.

Hamburgers By The Lake!

Today was a great day to head out on a little lunch date for many of our members. It’s been an annual summer event to drive to Lord Fletcher’s on Lake Minnetonka for their outdoor hamburgers. The drive there is really pretty—beautiful houses, yards and flowers.
