Valley City – Hi Everybody, Erin Woehl served as our Mayor for a Day last week.  She did a great job and having her family there supporting her was a blast.  Thanks to staff who put the whole event together.

Arbor Day 2024 is April 27th & my brother’s birthday.  Our City Forester, Bob Anderson, will host a tree planting ceremony Friday the 26th, 2:00 just west of the Rosebud.  Take good care of trees in your community and plant a tree of your own too.

Think of family, friends or someone who may be having a tough time.  Make their day, call, text or e-mail letting them know you are thinking of them.

Do you remember delivering “May Baskets” when you were a kid?  It is the tradition of leaving a May Basket on someone’s door anonymously, ringing the door bell and running to avoid being identified?  Ah, those were the days.

The sun is getting higher in the sky and temperatures will be warmer.  You may want to check your air conditioner to make sure it is ready to keep you comfortable. 🙂

April is Earth Month and Monday the 22nd Earth Day is celebrated.  Like our homes, we have a responsibility to take care of our earth to provide continued healthy living.  Recycling, putting garbage in appropriate receptacles, keep our water clean and working towards green energy with reliability.  It is important these be year round commitments, not just April!

Last week we hosted a Red River Water Supply Project (RRWSP) meeting at our Fire Hall.  Administrators of the project shared routes of the pipeline, construction updates, federal and state cost shares and how Valley City and the area may benefit.  Stay tuned.
