Valley City Times-Record
Weekly message from Mayor Carlsrud
We are into the 2022 Salvation Army, Barnes County Unit, Kettle Campaign. The campaign runs through Christmas Eve morning and ringers are needed at Leevers and Petro. Please call Naomi at 701-541-1418 or Lenora at 701-840-1357. Thank you to all who donate and ring for your Barnes County Unit.
Our Valley City Fire Department (VCFD) has been receiving smoke alarm calls. While our firemen are happy to serve you, please check your alarms to avoid unnecessary calls.
We had a nice stretch of warmer weather over the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend enabling people to get rid of some ice left by earlier rain/ snow events. Thank you to all who were able to get out and scrape ice as it is safer and it looks nice.
* A note: turn you signal lights on early to alert traffic around you.
Last Friday evening there was a fun Christmas Lighting Ceremony complete with hot chocolate, marshmallow roasting and a “unique” light switch, hahaha! Our Electrical Department used imaginative light placings creating a very attractive looking Veterans’ Park; drive by, see and enjoy. From there, drive or walk up Central to 5th Street and see the “North Pole”! Thank you all who contributed to the successful evening and I look forward to seeing you next year.
** This year’s “Parade of Lights” will be Thursday evening 12/1/2022 at 6:00. Many stores will be open, Santa Claus is scheduled to make an appearance and the weather forecast is for a nice December evening. Come out and enjoy!
Thank you to all who provide and proof material for this article.
