BIG VALLEY BULLETIN — The Big Valley Legion held elections at their March meeting. District Commander Rosalind LaRose attended and was put to work conducting the election. Special thanks to her for her assistance. With a few changes, the election results were as follows: Lorne Parkin, President; Val Erickson, Vice President; Jan Boice, Secretary; Bob Boswell, Treasurer; Sue Boswell and Susan Stewart, Poppy and Arline Grover, Membership. Three new members came on board. Welcome to Ken Johnson, Dennis Johnson and Pastor Allan Clark. The Legion is open to anyone interested in joining.

This meeting also included the official appointment of John Berresford to the Sergeant at Arms position that his late father Allan Beresford carried out so well. The old sash was retired and presented to the Berresford family. Allan served as President and Sergeant at Arms for more than 20 years and bestowing this sash to the family represents a thank you for a job well done. The next Legion meeting will be on Tuesday, April 4 at 7:30 p.m.

A ceremony is planned for April 9 beginning at 1 p.m. to celebrate and remember the Vimy Ridge battle that helped to define Canada as a nation. The Legion was formed after the First World War to remember those who gave so much. It is only fitting that they be remembered on this 100th anniversary. Posters with additional details will be up around the village.

Don’t forget to come out and enjoy the Big Valley Legion’s Annual St. Patrick’s Stew Day this coming Friday, March 17 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
