Big Valley plans senior hockey meeting, Terry Fox school run

.

Big Valley Bulletin

The Annable, Bahan, McCrindle, Scott, Shaw, Stuber, Ridley and Romane families express their sincere appreciation to everyone who helped to make the fourth annual Big Valley Memorial Golf Tournament such a grand success.

Many thanks to Bill for the wonderful roast beef and to Lorne Parkin for doing the team draws. Also, thanks for the donations of prizes and cash.

Profits from the golf event will be donated to the Big Valley Cemetery, the Big Valley School Breakfast Program and the Big Valley Municipal Library.

We hope to see everyone again next year.

Volunteers and members of the Big Valley Beautification Society have been working very hard this summer, keeping all the coal carts, flowerbeds and gardens throughout the village attractive.

People might have noticed the work done to the “first” garden across from the museum. Many people have commented how nice it looks. A work bee for the “second” garden took place last Thursday.

That same evening, the train station committee had a meeting for old and new members.

Thank you to everyone who supported the beautification society this past summer. Your assistance ensured that our village was very pleasant for residents and all the visitors to the Valley.

A special meeting for the Big Valley Oil Kings senior men’s hockey team is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. next Wednesday (Sept. 28) at the Big Valley Train Station meeting room.

The organization needs volunteers for the coming season to fill the following positions: executive, manager, trainer and coaches.

For more information, call Gerry at 403-876-2234.

Don’t forget that the Big Valley School students will be participating in the Terry Fox run this Friday, beginning at 12:15 p.m.

Students will continue canvassing until Thursday.

Donors are asked to help the students fill out the pledge sheets. Parent volunteers are encouraged to participate in this event.
