Penn Valley businesses: true meaning of community

Ready Springs School would like to thank our Penn Valley businesses for hosting our little ones on their annual walking field trips. These began a couple years ago as a way to help keep our campus quiet during our Star Testing in the upper grades and have become a treasured tradition for our lower grades. This year the kids visited Penn Valley Hardware, Daybreak Cafe, Penn Valley Fire Station, Northridge and Caleb’s Creamery. At Penn Valley Hardware, they were given a full tour of the store by employees with as much energy as the kids they were hosting, and then were able to plant flowers in permanent beds out back. They were also sent home with mini-greenhouses to plant at home. Penn Valley Fire Department gave a full tour of the station, introductions to the fire engines, and, of course, a turn at spraying water. At Caleb’s they had ice-cream. At Northridge they made pizza, and Daybreak Cafe treated them to cookies and lemonade. Thank you to our local merchants for treating us so well.
