The Valentine Community Garden is wrapping up another busy year. But there is still much to do to prepare for the 2015 growing season. In fact, planning runs year round!
A Harvest Celebration and re-organizational meeting will be held on Sunday, October 26, from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the 4-H Building. All current members, partners, and anyone interested in getting involved are encouraged to attend. There will be a potluck supper followed by a meeting to choose new Board members and volunteers. Due to term limits, many Board positions will be open for 2015 and more general volunteers are needed for committees such as maintenance, education, and Farmers’ Market.

Valentine Youth Planning Commission held their second annual trap competition “Shoot Out in the Sandhills”, October 5th at the Cody Gun Club in Cody, NE. Winning this years competition was Dale Kalenda of Cody but followed closely by Tee Hanson of Valentine. Third and fourth place was split between Ron Schneider of Cody and Willy Kerr of Valentine. Funds raised during this event help provide area youth with program development and scholarships. This year’s sponsors include Bomgaars, Nim-Rods, The Gun Cabinet, McBride Sporting Goods, and Berry Creek Gun and Pawn. Valentine Youth Planning Commission is always looking for new faces to help grow programs that offer opportunities to our area youth. Not only does the organization support recreational programs, they also are the driving force behind Valentine’s Teen Center. The Youth Planning Commission was established in 1994.
