Big Valley Bulletin
For those of you who did not attend Big Valley School’s Trickster Theatre performance on Friday, Nov. 21, you missed a fantastic show. It was entertaining, well done and the children were amazing. Congratulations to all who were involved.
The Big Valley Legion would like to take this opportunity to extend their thanks to all who came out to show their respects on Remembrance Day. Poppy box donations and wreath sponsors were excellent this year and some of the money will be going to the Legion Last Post Fund, which goes toward erecting proper markers on veterans’ graves that have gone unmarked.
Thank you to Phil Jarmin for doing the Last Post and Reveille, our piano player, Esther Keith, from Perdue, Saskatchewan who filled in admirably and to Serena for suggesting and enlisting her mom. The history of service that has been given by Big Valley residents over the past 100 years has been very high.
Thank you again one and all for remembering them.
The Legion’s next meeting will be on Tuesday, Dec. 2 at 2 p.m. On the agenda will be the Pioneer Dinner scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 13. If by chance you are a senior new to Big Valley or have recently turned 65 and have not yet been contacted, please phone Arline at 876-2231.
The Big Valley Agricultural Society will be holding their annual general meeting on Monday, Dec. 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the Big Valley Community Hall Annex. The Big Valley Agricultural Society runs the arena, golf course and ball diamonds. Memberships for the society will be available. Everyone is welcome.
