    I am proud to call Penns Valley home and proud to be an alumni of Penns Valley. I was born and raised in the valley and I am thrilled to be raising my kids here. The term family and community had to be developed by a person living here. My most favorite time of the year is fall, you can be almost anywhere in the valley and look around and see the most amazing array of fall colors.

    Gus and Huck say that their favorite thing about Penns Valley is the Elk Creek Cafe.
    My favorite thing about Penns Valley is the community! BTW we need that community to come together to save our library! Come to the meeting on October 8 at the Aaronsburg Civic Club.

    Since you are talking about football, I’ll share my first Penns Valley football story. It was just after 9/11. The world was in chaos, everything seemed to be falling apart, you couldn’t turn on the tv or the radio without getting more and more bad news. It was our first year in the Penns Valley school system, our three oldest of five in the elementary school. We decided to take the kids to the Friday night football game, to get away from the media blasts, to hopefully find some sort of normalcy. What we found was community. Bright lights, whistles and music from the band filled the air. The smell of hamburgers, hot dogs and french fries wafted from the concession stand. Teenaged kids were walking back and forth along the fence line, dressed in jeans and PV sweatshirts, greeting each other like it had been years instead of just hours since they had seen one another. The stands were packed. I sat next to an older gentleman and asked him who he was there to watch. “The Rams,” he replied. He didn’t have a grandson playing or a granddaughter cheering, he was just there to watch this new generation play their hearts out on the field. The world was falling apart, but in this one moment, the tradition of high school football, a night out with community, was all that mattered. I don’t remember whether we won or lost the game that night, but I did know one thing. We were home and we were here to stay…

    What I love most about Penns Valley is the community works together and that I have lived here all my life. I raised my children here and now they are raising theirs in Penns Valley. The Spring Antique show, Grange Fair, Fall Antique Show, Dutch fall festival, The Hope 5k, Turkey Trot, Rodney Meyers Egghill Run, Family Life 5k, and all the other activities that happen in Penns Valley to support the community are other things that I love about PV.

    The things I love about the fall in Penns Valley are all the beautiful colors of the trees and the cooler temperature.
