The Activities Committee that has functioned here at Valle Vista for many years has disbanded. The same people have been on this committee, and with very little help and few new members, they have decided to end the committee. Many of the members will lend their support to other committees here in Valle Vista such as the Park and Pool Committee. The Activities Committee was responsible for such events as the Chili Cook-off, Ice Cream Social and the New Year's Eve Party. A great big thank you goes out to all the people who worked so hard on this committee to put on events for our community.
