Vale Club Today & the Fall Fair Tradition.

In 2011, the Vale SchoolCommunity House is still owned and maintained by the women of the Vale community. Many longstanding traditions established by the Home Demonstration Club are still practiced today: convening monthly meetings, hosting neighborhood events, offering the building to other community groups, helping community members in need, and, of course, raising money for the upkeep of their much-loved building. Each year the Vale Club hosts a Fall Fair, a tradition of many decades. Photos (clockwise): Fall Fairs in 2005, 2001, ca. 1970, and ca. 1980, and Vale Club members pictured in 2008.
