Dayton Valley Days was the largest and best yetDayton Valley Days Committee wants to thank all of the volunteers and vendors who worked so hard to make Dayton Valley Days the largest and the best two-day event in Lyon County. We want to give a special thanks to Sophia Renken, our Grand Marshals John and Donna Alexander, Bob and Nadine Hastings, Dan McLaughlin of the Mason Valley Dayton Unit Boys and Girls Club for their help and support and to Eagle Valley Golf Course for the use of their golf carts. We want to thank the Dayton Kiwanis for their great pancake breakfast, Jay and Dawn Van Sickle for their job of putting on the Saturday Parade, the Boys and Girls Club Dayton Unit for running the children’s games and the great 2nd Annual 2 Day chili cook-off, the Dayton Historical Society for their great tours and exhibits and Dennis and Marilee Lindsay of the Dayton Valley Car Club for another great show n shine. Great job to all! We also want to thank Karren Rhodes for helping with the advertising and especially a big thanks to Bonnie Matton, Nadine Hastings and Animal Rescue for heading the Pet Parade on Sunday. It was the biggest yet. Special thanks to the Community of Dayton and surrounding areas for your support. This year was the biggest and best ever. Next year will be even better. Dayton Valley Days CommitteeDaytonThank you to dentists for work for veteransHats off to the wonderful dentist staff of doctors Homes, Mannikko, and Beglin who selflessly helped so many veterans in getting free dental work. How impressive was that. Also what a great idea of the Eagle Valley Christian School making a Thanksgiving lunch for 20 seniors. How neat that you do such kindness (make crafts and sing) all year for those seniors. That is a great idea for the Boys and Girls Club to walk over to their local assisted living place and sing Christmas carols and make homemade Christmas cards for those lonely seniors that don’t have family around. It doesn’t cost anything and it is literally in the back yard of the club. God Bless the Veterans and the ones that honor them, and God bless the young children that bring happiness to seniors. Now that is paying it forward.Sunni Enciso HeinrichsCarson CityThank you to Halloween Party sponsorsOn Oct. 31 the Division of Child and Family Services hosted its 11th Annual Halloween Party for our foster children in care.

Carolyn DenningPresident of CVAAThanks to Cress ManufacturingThe Board of Directors of the Young At Heart Senior Citizens Club in Gardnerville would like to thank Cress Manufacturing Co. of Carson City for the repair of our kiln, repairs which were above and beyond what was requested but were required. We had approved a certain level of repair at an agreed-upon price. Cress Manufacturing, after seeing the condition of the kiln, repaired things that were above and beyond what was contracted for, yet maintained the original budget.This action saved Young At Heart Senior Citizens Club several hundred dollars. This savings will be directed toward equipping the new senior center in Gardnerville.
