THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.
Dru Jeppe CVD grand marshal
- April 25, 2014
-- Reeds Furniture’s president Dru Jeppe is the 58th
Annual Conejo Valley Days (CVD) Grand Marshal. Jeppe and her family (owners of Reeds Furniture) have been long-time participants and supporters of the festival. For the third year, Reeds is sponsoring a Home Emporium at CVD. The Emporium will be filled with home furnishings and indoor and outdoor products. Designs for sale include western and Victorian styles, modern reclaimed furniture and CVD signage. CVD is May 8 through 11 at Conejo Creek Park South (Janss Rd., exit off the 23 Freeway).
“Conejo Valley Days represents the area’s western spirit and reminds us of our roots,” says Jeppe, “It’s a part of our history. I’m honored that they chose me as the CVD grand marshal.” Jeppe represents the third generation of the family-owned furniture company, which opened in 1960 in Thousand Oaks. She remembers going to CVD as a child. “Our family was in the CVD parade as early as 1963. We entered a little float drawn by a pony,” she remembers.
The CVD Emporium will feature a photo booth complete with western and Victorian style clothing. Festivalgoers can dress up in the western clothes and have their pictures taken. Prior to CVD, Reeds will give away cowboy hats at Reeds Furniture (http://www.reedsfurniture.com/
) in Agoura Hills (28401 Canwood Street) with a minimum purchase as well and CVD entry passes.
The Lucy Pet Foundation (http://lucypetfoundation.org/
) is the nonprofit partner for this year’s Conejo Valley Days. CVD features entertainment for kids at the Kids’ Korral (sponsored by Eureka Organic Bread (http://www.eurekabread.com/
)), motocross freestyle exhibitions, new carnival rides, outhouse races, a western themed Main Street, the Golden Horseshoe Saloon (sponsored in part by Rock & Roll Pizza) and a food court. The motocross exhibitions, Emporium and live entertainment are included with general admission.
