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.

Disc Jockey Mike Henry entertaining the Valley View Cooperative Residents
Our Fabulous Entertainer, Disc Jockey, Mike Henry

Last week we were entertained by Mike Henry, a retired disc jockey with a passion for rock and roll history. In 2019 he presented the history of rock and roll from the 50’s and 60’s. This time he brought us the history of the big band era, taking in the late 30’s through the 40’s and early 50’s.

Mike has a talent of giving a brief, interesting introduction to the musician and then plays a clip of the music. He knows the history of the composer as well as the performer. Time spent with Mike sails by. Folks are tapping their toes and smiling with recognition of songs gone by. It was a happy time of entertainment!

Over sixty residents gathered together on Memorial Day to honor those who have given their lives for our country and to have a meal together. The event began with a flag raising, followed by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing the National Anthem.

After the short program, a box lunch was served in the Valley View Room. The lunches were catered and it was reported they tasted very good. This was the first event of this nature held since COVID-19 and it was nice to see smiles on faces and to listen to the chatter. Oh, how we have missed gathering together!
