A new society is formed in Big Valley to help with community needs

Big Valley Ladies Community Club invites ladies to join them for Paint Nite on Oct. 19.

This is the first fundraising event for the Big Valley Ladies Community Club, a new society whose aim is to help out the Big Valley School, local kids’ sporting events, scholarships, local societies, and people in need. Area ladies are invited to come out to enjoy an entertaining social evening and go home with a beautiful painting on Wednesday, Oct. 19. There will be an open bar with beer, wine, and coolers plus an assortment of yummy appetizers for everyone to snack on. Registration is available at or contact Jenni Houle at 403-876-2558 for details. They look forward to seeing you there.

Big Valley’s Lori Gordon will moderate an all candidates’ forum at the Big Valley Drop-In Centre at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28. This will be an excellent opportunity for residents to get to know the candidates and find out how they feel about Village matters. The forum will begin with a few prepared questions followed by an opportunity for questions from the public as time allows.

The Big Valley 4-H Beef Club will hold an organizational meeting on Monday, Oct. 2 at the Big Valley School. Anyone interested in joining 4-H is invited to this meeting. For more information, please contact Cheryl Bartley at Big Valley School.

Big Valley Hall Board Bingo opens the new season on Thursday, Oct. 5. at the Community Hall. Warm up starts at 7:30 p.m. Come on out and try your luck!

The Big Valley Drop-In Centre is hosting the first community Pancake Supper of the season on Monday, Oct. 16 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

Big Valley is on target to gaining an archery range right here in the village. Earlier this year, Big Valley’s Bust Out Rodeo Association generously set aside an area at their newly developed outdoor rodeo grounds to set up an archery range. With the prospect of forming a club, a few local volunteers began work to bring the idea to life. Startup funds have been secured and a recently donated storage “shed” has been overhauled and placed on site.

Later this fall, a formal meeting will be arranged to discuss the project and explore possibilities. Anyone interested in bringing the sport of archery to Big Valley is encouraged to add his or her name and contact information to the list at the Village Office or the Big Valley Library.
