Valentine's 2nd Annual Heart of Christmas Celebration Results

The Heart City was glowing on Saturday with the parade highlighting the 2nd Annual Heart of Christmas Celebration.

The Parade of Lights Winners are as follows:

1st Place:  Dawson & Kime Families

2nd & 3rd Place Tie: Lady Wranglers, Leonard’s Country Christmas, Berry Bridge Campground

 

Quilt Show Winners

First place, $40, went to a sixty year old quilt belonging to Carol Luther.  Her father designed the quilt and both her mother and father embroidered designs of horse and rider in various poses across the quilt.  The embroidery was filled in with thousands of stitches and very well done.

Second place, $25, went to Carolyn Wickett’s pieced quilt.  All borders were pieced and it was a Christmas wall hanging quilt, very well done.

Third place, $10, went to an antique quilt made in the 1930s belonging to Pat Schemmer.  This quilt was an album quilt or signature quilt, precious memories of the past with names of family and friends from the 1930s.

Honorable mention went to Viola Coleman’s tapestry.  It was made in Shelby Co, Indiana in 1850 by her great grandmother.  Her great grandmother gathered, carded, spun and dyed the wool.  Designed the throw, and wove it, putting the date and place in the borders, precious, precious piece.

Thanks to all who entered quilts in our show, to Carolyn Wickett and Arvella Foster who helped work the show and to the Heart of Christmas committee who provided the chamber bucks prizes.

Area Cub Scouts Top Regional Popcorn Sales

 

Valentine's Cub Scouts Pack 288 recently wrapped up their annual popcorn sales effort. Each October, the scouts sell Trails End Popcorn to help fund their activities and events in the coming year. This year, Pack 288 was recognized as the top selling group in the region, selling over 8,000 packages. Thanks to their sales efforts and the generosity of the community, the cub scouts received over $6,000 which will help with their usual activities as well as paying membership dues, subscriptions to Boys Life Magazine, and each scout will get to go to the day camp of their choice.

Deklin Titus and RJ Dean met the sales threshold for a scholarship, meaning 6% of all popcorn sales made by those scouts through their entire scouting experience over the next several years will be put into individual scholarship accounts for them.

Scouts who did not reach the scholarship threshold, but did meet the district goal for sales were Tryston Gaver, Trevor Burdick, Preston Kelly, and Jayden Bacon.

Cubmaster Chad Gaver would like to thank all of the scouts for their hard work and the community for their generosity.

 

Beware - More Phone Scams

Valentine Police Department has received several calls today that citizens are being called and told that they need to pay or their city services will be disconnected.  The caller ID says “City of Mission.”  THIS IS NOT how the City of Valentine sends notices.  You would receive notice through the mail and NOT through the City of Mission, SD.  Do not send money or give any personal information!!!
