The spring event is back! We will congregate at the park a little bit before 1030 AM for the Egg hunt. The hunt itself will be at 1030 AM.
Kids will be divided up by age group for the hunt.
We also will have another activity after the hunt is done! Our wonderful Elise Manning will be hosting a STEM related egg drop on the tennis court. Please see attached flyer for this event. It’s new this year and I am so excited to see where it goes!
I am attaching the flyer about the Egg drop. Contact info for questions is Elise Manning, the email@example.com
We will also have Mini the donut out again from 10am to 1pm! Light refreshments will also be served.
Here is the signup for the hunt-if you have any trouble, just email firstname.lastname@example.org, with your name, email and what task you wish to do. This event is not possible without the wonderful volunteers that help me with it!
If I am not able to get enough volunteers, we will just have the egg drop and it will be fabulous!

Please join your neighbors for some trick-or-treating fun at the High Valley Park on Sunday, October 31st at 4:30-5:30. Neighbors are invited to pass out candy from their cars and/or lawn chairs along the road by the park. Feel free to decorate your car, play spooky music, and be creative.
Candy givers, please park alongside the road next to the park in one direction-there will be a lead vehicle already parked, just park behind. A line will start forming-just pull up in line behind each other.
Families arriving with trick-or-treaters, please park closer to the intersection of 202nd Pl/SE 200th Ave or 202nd Pl and SE 127th St.
Trick-or-treaters are asked to only visit cars one time each to allow for enough candy for all of the kids. After 5:15 trick-or-treaters may take a second trip around if there is still candy available.
This year there will be a photo booth again for everyone to get their pictures taken. Thank you to Rick Edelman for providing this to the neighborhood.
Masks are recommended for all participants.
We are excited to see everyone for this fun neighborhood event. We know it will be spooktacular!

After over a year and a half without our annual summer picnic…. It’s back!!!!! We will have our summer picnic on Saturday, August 28th from 3-7pm at the park. Plan on seeing old friends and making new ones! Here is the info: Food: We are having Pecos Pit Barbecue cater our event! More details to follow. Or, you can bring your own stuff. Due to COVID, there will be no potluck this year. As far as utensils, we will have cups, napkins and silverware, or, you can bring your own-whatever you are comfortable with. Drinks: We will have lemonade and water. Brad Simmons and his beer are back as well! The High Valley pub will be open for business-this is made possible by donations, so if you are planning on drinking the beer, please consider making a donation. Entertainment: We will have a live band, brought to you by the awesome Steve Manning and Co. Feel free to bring any sporting goods to play, soccer, kickball, volleyball… you name it. We all know how much the kiddos love water, so even though we won’t have a water bouncy house, we will have a slip and slide and sprinkler. Bring your water squirter so you can help keep your loved ones cool (on the tennis court)! Also, since the picnic is just a few days before school, let’s have a back to school ice cream social for the kiddos! Each kid will get one free ice cream. Additional ice cream will be available for purchase. Usually the ice cream is around $2 to $3 a pop. Laura Anderson will have tickets to hand out that you then present to ice cream vendor. Ice cream vendor will be there from 5 to 7pm.

Maple Hills Community has invited us to join them for National Night Out! Come down to the Maple Hills Park next Tuesday, August 3rd at 5pm.

Our next food truck, 314 Pie, will visit High Valley’s playground on Sunday, July 11 from 5-8pm. They sell savory (dinner) and sweet (dessert) pies. Their menu can be found here: https://www.314pieseattle.com/menu
It’s important to know a few things. First, their pies are small (about 6” in diameter) and are definitely single-serve and you’ll probably want to make a salad to go with it, or buy the dessert pie, too! Also, they typically have 2 or 3 additional pies that aren’t on their menu. They have two vegetarian options, sometimes three if they make their ratatouille pie.
Their pies are quite dense and flavorful. Sauce/gravy does not spill out when you cut them open. They also often make 1 or 2 dessert pies that are not on the menu, and, just so you don’t get disappointed, they don’t always make all the dessert pies that are on the menu.
