Spring Valley has three-in-one activity day

SPRING VALLEY – On Saturday, June 21 the residents of the Spring Valley area of Clearlake Oaks had a fun activity day including cleaning up their roads, having a rubber duck race in Cache Creek and an ice cream social.

The road clean up started at 9:30 a.m. with volunteers meeting at the Spring Valley Community Center, 3000 Wolf Creek Road, to organize and collect trash bags.

The five major roads in the subdivision were clean by 10:30 a.m. thanks to Bettie Conner, Mary Barnett, Crystal Kinder, Rob Christian, Jim Fluker, Jim Kinder, Flo Kinder, Linda Mann and her granddaughter Katarina, Sandra Bagdonov, Katie Johnson, Randy Vess and Paula Vess and their son-in-law Nate Barker and grandson Aidan Barker, Win Cary and Kyle Valenzuela who helped with the roadside cleanup. Also, thanks to ALL the valley residents who are helping to keep our roadways cleaner!

This cleanup collected about 100 pounds of litter and one tire. There were no “white metal” items (which means small appliances). This is a very large reduction in the amount of litter that has been collected in previous years. The Lake County Road Department will pick up the collection of litter.

During the month of June the Spring Valley Property Owners Association sold sponsorship tickets for rubber ducks to be released in Cache Creek. Three hundred sponsorships were sold, and the duck race began at noon in the Helen Mitcham Park campground on Wolf Creek Road. It was great fun as the ducks spread out in the current, and the group of “duck catchers” waited at the finish line. First place winner was Bucky Clark, second place went to Kathy Vogen and third place went to Gayle Christian.

While the duck race was happening, the Property Owners Association sold ice cream to the spectators and volunteers to help them cool off. It was a busy day of fun, and many of the residents of Spring Valley came out to enjoy themselves, as well as help.
