Around the Valley 8.19.21

By Shannon O'Donnell August 18, 2021

Hello, and happy Thursday. Last Saturday, my daughter and I had a booth at Touch-a-Truck NRV. For some of you, she may have even guided you from the main entrance DIRECTLY to our booth, sorry about that.    We had over 40 new subscribers at the event. Quite a few current subscribers stopped by to say hi and that they were appreciative of NRV Macaroni Kid. We thoroughly enjoyed the event and meeting all of you! The children really seemed to enjoy making macaroni bracelets or drawing with sidewalk chalk. Thank you to Touch A Truck NRV for having a fun family day! 

We are always open to suggestions on how we can improve NRV Macaroni Kid for our readers. If you have any suggestions, feel free to email us at Each Thursday morning at 5 AM, NRV Macaroni Kid will send out our weekly email. This email is packed with articles, local guides, events and a directory full of local businesses you can support in the NRV. Our Directory is a work in progress and we are working on adding a lot more businesses. If you are interested in being in the directory, please send us an email. We also have sponsorship opportunities available. Our sponsors allow us to share NRV Macaroni Kid with our readers for FREE. We are in the process of creating a Photographer's of the NRV Guide. If you know a photographer who would like to be a part of this guide, please send them our way. We hope this resource will help families who don't have a go to photographer but would like family pictures.
