Arbon Valley – The Best Place on Earth
Arbon Valley – The Best Place on Earth Arbon Valley has gone through changes over the past 100 years just like any town has.  However, if you see an old photo of your great-grandpa standing on a street with his field behind him, chances are you could pick out that spot and it would look exactly the same today.  This town is full of rich history as well as kind and honest people.
“Have you ever been down to Arbon Valley ?
I spend a lot of time there in my mind.
And if God doesn’t live in Arbon Valley,
I’ll bet that’s where he spends most of his time.”

Volunteer Opportunity

Arbon Elementary is looking for some assistance in remodeling our garden spot. We would like it to be a raised garden and a little bigger. We think we would like to use railroad ties.

What we need is some nice strong volunteers that would be willing to pick up and place the ties in their appropriate place. The time and date is flexible. Our Earth Day activities are not until the 19th. We just need someone or someones to go to town and get railroad ties, bring them back to Arbon and place them in a square. We will get the dirt and plant later.

After that the students and teachers would do the rest on our Earth Day activities (19th of May). If anyone is interested in helping please just call me at the school or at home. Thank you!
