2024 Garage Sale

It’s that time of year once again! The Hidden Valley Garage Sale will take place from Thursday, May 2nd – Saturday, May 4th. This timeframe aligns with the all-city Cottage Grove garage sale.

The advertised hours will be 8 am – 4 pm, but as most of you know – there will be early shoppers. This is a great opportunity to clean out the closets, basement, and garage. Residents run their own sales, but no need to advertise individually. We get great traffic through the neighborhood because of the history of the quantity and quality of the sales. Happy selling!

See the garage sale link for more details on items for sale and to add your own!

The HOA will place a listing of a neighborhood sale in the Cottage Grove Journal but if you want additional visibility you can also add your garage sale listing there for a $35 fee. Call 651-829-3234 ext 0 or email office@thepaperboy.news to post an ad by April 25th.

2020 Easter Egg Hunt Planning

Due to the Corona Virus lock downs we are postponing this until a later date TBD.

We are starting to plan for a Hidden Valley Homeowner Easter egg hunt for 2020. This will be held in the Hidden Valley Park on March 28th at 10am. It is open to Hidden Valley residents, children, grand children, nephews, and nieces aged 0-14.

We plan on having 3 groups of children hunt in different parts of the park for eggs hidden by our volunteers. We will have candy and age appropriate toys inside of the eggs.

Punch/Cider will be provided and possibly cookies as well after the event. Please vote in our poll with the number of “egg hunters” you plan on bringing to the event. You should get an email shortly with the password for this poll. Go here to vote once you have the password.

Please contact us if you do not see the email by February 17, 2020 and would like to vote.
