A Successful Open House at Valley View Cooperative!

On May 17th of 2024, from 10AM - 2 PM, Valley View Cooperative held a very successful open house for those that registered to attend.

In all, over 100 guests were present with many signing up to be notified of potential openings in the future. The atmosphere was very well organized and upbeat!

Guests had pre-registered for tours according to time slots which afforded small tours in groups of 6-8 visitors for a relaxed visit as they were guided throughout the building, touring the floorplans and amenities that Valley View Senior Cooperative has to offer.

On our Photo Gallery page you can find a sampling of the Open House event and get a small idea of what it could be like for you to live here!

We are a very welcoming community with much to offer for the Independent 55+ year old looking for the benefits of home ownership and independence.

After each tour guests were provided the opportunity to inquire for more information and ask specifics regarding becoming members by Valley View Office Staff and qualified residents in private discussions.

Thank you to ALL who volunteered and participated to make the event successful!

And, the post-tour food was excellent too!

Forever Young Birthday Celebration

Recently the treasured residents who are ninety years or older in our building were honored at the annual Forever Young party. Here are the lovely folks that are currently in the group.

We are blessed to have fifteen members in this age range—one of whom is going to turn one hundred and one next month! A little program was the first order of business.

This was followed by each of the honorees telling a little story from their childhood. This was delightful—including a tale of being butted by a sheep to lighting what was thought to be firecrackers only to find out it was the starter for TNT!

Refreshments of cake and ice cream were served. This is a special event enjoyed by all.

And a fine celebration it was!

A New Piano!

Since we no longer have an in-house piano tuner, it was decided we should remove the “real” pianos and purchase a digital piano. A research team was set up and a Kawai digital piano was purchased. A couple of weeks ago a concert was given by four resident pianists. Each played two pieces, showing the different sounds available on the instrument, to the delight of the audience. Cake and ice cream was served following the recital.

Here are a few photos of those who played pieces for everyone to enjoy.

Spaghetti Dinner!!

Last night the third floor residents hosted a spaghetti dinner in the Valley View Room. The catered dinner included a delicious salad, bread, fantastic spaghetti with meat sauce and a wonderful—still warm—apple crisp with vanilla ice cream. The tables were set with red placemats, red/white checked salad plates, cans of tomatoes on a little square paper doily, and topped with a single battery operated candle. The hosts sported mustaches. It looked very festive. Italian music was the background during dinner.

Following dinner, Mike Henry provided a one hour program of show tunes from famous performers. Many of the songs were from Broadway shows; some were from movies. Mike has done excellent research for music from this genre and gives a bit of history and shows a short clip of the performance. Everyone enjoys this and some sang along or mouthed the words being sung.

Thank you to the third floor for hosting an excellent evening!
