Mayor’s Message


There is simply something special about Happy Valley when the sun is shining, and everyone is enjoying this wonderful place we call home.

Once again, Happy Valley was the center of numerous summer events that brought us all together. We had another amazing Concerts in the Valley series that culminated in a fun Family Safety Fair, had a robust 4th of July Family Festival that brought some beautiful fireworks to our skies, and had over 30 block parties participate in National Night Out. On top of that, we debuted our first Drive-In Movie Night, added more summer recreation camps for the kids, and had some of the highest participation in our Library’s Summer Reading Program.

So many gave of their time and talents to make each event a success. Thank you to all the community sponsors who helped support these endeavors. Without your contributions, these events would not be possible. I also want to thank the dedicated volunteers and staff members for their hard work in bringing these events to fruition. I recognize the hard work you all put in to make these events memorable for our residents and their families, and I also know many of you miss spending time with their own families to make sure we can all enjoy these special activities. Thank you again for all you do.

I also want to thank all of you for attending these events. Your participation ultimately makes these gatherings unforgettable and creates a positive experience for all.

As the cooler air begins to settle in and we all start reaching for our jackets once again, I know next summer will bring another round of community fun. Until then, the Summer of 2019 was certainly one for the record books.
