Julie and Ron Hartley have lived, farmed and raised a family in Seneca for most of their lives. They have been selected as the king and queen of the Seneca Ridge and Valley Rally, which will be Saturday, July 14. (Submitted photo)

The 25th annual Ridge and Valley Rally in Seneca will be Saturday, July 14, with events happening all day long at the community town hall. 

Register to participate in the 5K/10K walk-run between 6:30 and 7 a.m., before the race begins at 7:30. 

All area community members are invited to enjoy the 11 a.m. parade, followed by a smoked pork chop dinner at noon and a pie auction at 1 p.m. There’s a volleyball tournament throughout the day, kids games after the parade and food and beverages available for purchase on the grounds.

The antique tractor pull starts at 1 p.m. Then, euchre and bean bag tournaments will happen at 4 p.m.

This year’s Seneca Ridge and Valley Rally King and Queen are Ron and Julie Hartley, who’ve lived in Seneca since 1976. Julie grew up in the Seneca and Prairie du Chien areas. The two have been married for 34 years and farmed in the area their entire married lives. Julie works full-time off the farm at Rural Insurance. The Hartleys have four children and eight grandchildren.

The 2018 king and queen have been volunteered at many community events, including the Ridge and Valley Rally, for a number of years. The Hartley family was instrumental in bringing the antique tractor pull to the event. 

Ron is a member of the Seneca Fire Department and First Responders. They are also active members of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. In their spare time, they enjoy spending time with family and fishing.

So stop by for one or all of the festivities, congratulate the Hartleys on this special recognition, kick back and enjoy this true community celebration.
