Haunted Valley Day October 30th, 2010

We had a great time in the Valley during Haunted Valley Day!  The haunted house was very scary and there were costumes to suite every personality.  
    The winner of our chili contest will be announced later. (there seems to be some confusion as to which Wiedefeld won!)  
    Our photographer and his helper were out and about during the scary proceedings and took these pictures!


Flood of 2008
Slide Show

A big thank you goes out to Frank Nichol who took these pictures during the Flood of 2008.
He captured the destruction of Lake Cedars Dam, which took a large bite out of the budget that year.


Ice Storm 2008

Slide Show

     Below are pictures taken by those who were in the Valley during the Ice Storm of 2008. They were without electric or water or means of escaping from the Valley. It took a team of Lot Owners two days to cut and clear trees from the main entrance road just to find out the main Highway was just as covered. Some of us did without electric for 10 days. But there is beauty to be found in everything as you will find in the pictures below.

    We were in the news after this event. Click on the link to read the story. 


CERT Training September 2010
The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program teaches citizens disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members are also encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their communities.

Hidden Valley Fishing Club hosted the Cape Girardeau County CERT on September 30th, October 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.  Participating in the 20-hour course were:  Paul and Sharon Graham, Bill and Brenda Lix, Buddy Pombert, Duzy Wiedefeld, Debbie Nichol, and Dianne and John Stapleton.  It was a very interesting and we all felt that we learned a wealth of information.  This group is now certified for two years.

If you would like information about the next CERT training, please contact Jim Watkins, CERT Coordinator at 573-339-6799.
