The next Bingo is Thursday, Oct. 23 starting at 7:30 p.m. Hope to see you there.

The Big Valley School Junior High students would like to say thanks to the Kastik family once again for the donation that allowed them to go to Alfred Lake. The trip was a great success and everyone had a lot of fun. They would also like to thank Mrs. Steen for all her hard work making the meals for the trip.
