Thank you to our loyal customers for putting your spare change in the Penny Jar in the Valley Gift Shop and the Auxiliary Thrift Shop. The Penny Jar donations in 2019 was $1252.10. The Residents at “The Views” will decide what special item the donation will provide for them.
Due to the weather, the Auxiliary Thrift Shop will be closed today, January 16th, to all volunteers and customers. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. The roads and sidewalks are in very poor condition. Our plan is to open again on Friday, January 17th. We will post another announcement if we need to close on Friday as well. Be very cautious if you are outside walking today.
