Big Valley kids gain playground equipment


Big Valley Bulletin

The Big Valley Elks are very happy to report that the installation of the new playground equipment at the Big Valley “Purple Park” is finally complete. We were waiting for the swing chains, which have arrived at last.

Thank you to all the Elks and to Curt Watts for contributing to this endeavour. Many thanks to all the volunteers who have donated their time, their efforts and the generous use of their equipment, which helped to make this project possible.

Thank you to the Meyers for the auger, Lloyd for the cement mixer and Dennis for the heaving and use of his tractor. Also, Dennis tilled the park this past week and it looks great. It was a job well done.

Now, our local children will be able to enjoy all the efforts. Playground equipment is very expensive nowadays, so please ensure that respect is used.

Club 200 draws for the summer months were: July — Jack Houghton, Lloyd Duncan, Mike Wass and Lorna Watts; August — Marilyn Olmstead, Anita Berg, Ann Tizzard and Emmerson Briggs.

The Big Valley Legion won’t hold a meeting in September because there are no pressing items on the agenda, but there will be a Fall Rally in Stettler on Sunday, Sept. 11. Also, 2012 memberships are now available.

The Big Valley Drop-In Centre will hold a Pot Luck Lunch and meeting Tuesday, Sept. 6. Lunch begins at noon, with the meeting to follow at 1 p.m.
