It’s that time of year again! Time to get together in celebration of the season and in recognition of people who deserve to be recognized. For Leona Valley Sertoma members, December has two long standing traditions, the Senior Christmas Dinner, held on December 2, 2018, and their annual Christmas party for the members. The Christmas party is an opportunity to enjoy fellowship with their fellow Sertomans and to hand out the Awards and was held on December 1, 2018 at the home of member Shirley Kraft.
2018 Senior Christmas Dinner
Leona Valley Sertoma once again hosted its annual Senior Christmas Dinner on Sunday, December 2, 2018 with plenty of good cheer and delicious food to go around. This event is not a fundraiser, but rather a thank you to our senior citizens. After all, Leona Valley would not be what is is without them.
The photo on the right says it all — “Service with a Smile” along with a good helping of “Service to Mankind”. These volunteers were so happy to serve the seniors who attended the annual Senior Christmas Dinner. From the left are members Catherine Lord – Bridget Razo and Teresa Braley. Also lending a helping hand are 4-H Club Members Evelyn and Madeline Copeland.

2018 Sertoman of the Year
On December 1st, Mary Thomas received the “Sertoman of the Year” award representing her many years of loyal service to our organization. Mary has made quite an impressive contribution to the longevity and success of our small but mighty group – ALWAYS keeping us together with a smile and a loving hug.
2018 Service To Mankind Award
On December 1st Steve and Tamara Reaves were surprised with the Sertoma “Service to Mankind” award for their excellence in community service. Their entire family has not only provided a special comfort zone for Leona Valley, but have worked very hard organizing events that would appeal to the entire family.
