Valle Vista: Take Dad to all-you-can-eat barbecue for Father's Day
Bring that special man in your life to the Clubhouse for Father's Day for the all-you-can-eat barbecue from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be plenty to eat and beer specials. No reservations are required.
The recycle bin has been replaced here in Valle Vista and is now located at the first curve on Concho Drive. This is a co-mingle bin, but please do not put glass or regular trash in the bin. There is a bin for cardboard at the Clubhouse. Let's all do our part toward recycling.
Due to construction delays, the pool is not open yet, but hopefully, it will be very soon. It has been filled already, so we are getting close. I will let everyone know as soon as I have information on an opening date and how to get keys for the pool.
The B.L Shuffler and Sons and Desert Construction Open will be held here at Valle Vista on June 21 and 22. It is filling up fast, so be sure to sign up and pay your entry fee if you want to play in this tournament. You may do this over the phone, and credit cards will be accepted.
We are now less than a month away from our annual Fourth of July celebration. The day will include a golf tournament, pit barbecue, children's games, raffles and, of course, the fireworks display. The Fourth of July committee is looking for volunteers to help out with the various activities, so if you can help, please contact Sharon French at 757-5708 or Sylvia Dillow at 692-5610.
