It’s been a few decades since the Grand Valley area has had a section in the newspaper. My grandmother, Ardath Savitz, wrote the local news from 1985 to 1990. The last “Grand Valley Sanford Area News” column was in 1999.

I’m hoping to share current happenings, as well as our community’s history. All are welcome to contribute with any local events, seasonal activities, reunions, births, marriages, get togethers, family recipes and other such news items.

Upcoming events

— The Grand Valley Volunteer Fire Department Fall Auction is Saturday at 5 p.m. Doors open at 4 p.m.

— The Fall Turkey Party is Oct. 19, at 6:30 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. Attendees must be 18 or over.

— The fire department is looking for vendors for a fall craft fair to take place on Nov. 16, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Contact Megan Wright, at (814) 964-2548, or Lisa Johnson, at (814) 436-7623 or e-mail lisaj1367@yahoo.com for more details.

— The fire department is in need of ambulance and fire personnel, as well as social members to help with work bees and fundraisers.

The department has work bees on Tuesday nights at 6.

Kids’ Club is on the first and third Thursdays at 5 p.m., at Sanford UM Church.

G&S Helping Hands is a group of people from the Grand Valley and Sanford churches that have come together to identify persons or families in the area who might benefit from a bit of extra love through greeting cards, gift cards, or other. They meet the first Wednesday of every month at the Grand Valley church at 7 p.m. These activities are open to all who wish to attend.           

The youth group met for the first time on Oct 6. Seven teens were in attendance and everyone had a great time. The lesson time began with learning how to find the books of the Bible. Youth group is open for anyone in grades six to 12. Snacks will be provided at all meetings.

Tonight, at 7, the church will be showing “Pilgrim’s Progress” (animated version) with snacks provided. All are welcome to attend.                                         

Oct. 27 will be a special day as the church will host Nancy Kopf, a missionary to Peru. She will be sharing stories about her 30 plus trips and her love for the people there. After church, parishioners will be having lunch, where people can have more one-on-one time with Nancy and see some of the items she has brought back with her.        

— Sanford Church Sunday worship is at 11 a.m. Kids Club is on the first and third Thursdays of every month, at 5 p.m. The Kids Club will begin working on their Christmas program the first Monday of November, and is open to all children and teens.

This Sunday is Donut Sunday. Donuts and beverages will be provided after the service for all.
