Duvall - Plant & Garden Art Sale - May 12th

  • Written by Valley View Staff
Gardeners Alert! Spring has sprung and gardeners everywhere are trimming, planting seeds, and dividing perennials. The Duvall Civic Club’s 46th Annual Plant and Garden Art Sale plus Craft Fair on May 12th will need bedding plants, vegetable starts, perennials, and small bushes and trees. As in the past, almost all of these items are donated by supporters of the Civic Club.
The Club is asking area gardeners to plant a few extra seeds, pot up extra perennial divisions, trees, and bushes and bring them to the Rose Room behind and below the Duvall Visitors Center (the old library) on May 10th and 11th. More information may be found online at 
The Club was founded in 1929 and established the first library in the city. They raised money for the original building, which was built at a cost of $500. It opened in 1935 with a collection of 1500 books. The Duvall Friends of the Library is a direct descendant of the Civic Club. Other Duvall Civic Club community endeavors include scholarships for local high school graduates; support for Summer Stage, the Sno-Valley Senior Center, Duvall and Carnation Farmers' Markets, HopeLink, and the Riverview Education Foundation. One recent grant paid for a play structure at a local park. The Club welcomes new members. It meets the second Tuesday of each month at 1 p.m. in the Rose Room on the lower level of the Duvall Visitors Center from September through June. Visitors are always welcome.
If you love plants and would like to volunteer some time at our Plant Sale, or if you’d like to be a vendor, we’d love to have you.  Please contact us using the information below.

Northwest Equine Fashion Show & Benef it Auction - Supporting Warrior Families

  • Written by Valley View Staff

On April 28th, a local horse stable and equestrian center will be transformed into a venue for high fashion and elegance as the non-profit NWNHC Family Fund, in cooperation with local tack shops and pet stores, present the 4th Northwest Equine Fashion Show & Benefit Auction. The retailers will share their latest fashions for the horse, the human and the hound, while guests bid on dozens of equestrian items, getaway packages, tack and more in the silent and live auctions.

This benefit fashion show helps raise funds to support our military families who struggle with the challenges of overseas deployments and the realities of war. Through the NWNHC Family Fund’s annual Warrior Family Retreats, our military families participate in a three-day, all-expense-paid retreat, with equine-assisted therapists, horse trainers and counselors. For the past six years, the retreat has helped husbands and wives learn new life skills and reconnect as loving partners. It also has allowed their children to share their deployment experiences with other kids and enjoy stress-free, fun time with their parents.

The show features not only human models, but horses and dogs on the runway. Celebrity hound and star of the Treehouse Masters television show, Toasty Bun (aka Bun), leads the list of featured models.

The event takes place on April 28, 2018 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Northwest Natural Horsemanship Center, 32925 SE 46th St. in Fall City, Wash. Animal lovers and supporters of our military families can learn more and purchase tickets by visiting:

The NWNHC Family Fund is an all-volunteer, not-for-profit corporation based in Washington state and is a registered 501 (c) (3) charity (EIN 45-4536229).
