Big Valley village council has two new faces

First last minute news:

According to early unofficial results, Art Tizzard, Rick Kargaard and Gail Marie Knudson are the new councilors of the Village of Big Valley.

The Friends of the Big Valley Library and the Big Valley Municipal Library Board are thrilled with the results of their first ever rummage sale this past Saturday, Oct.16.

Community support was truly amazing with donations pouring in all day Friday, filling the Legion Hall to the brim. Shoppers came in steadily throughout the day, with many making numerous trips to discover hidden treasures.

We must take this opportunity to thank everyone in this great community for their amazing support. With too many individuals to mention by name, we would like to thank everyone who donated items for the sale; all the people who helped to haul things into the Legion Hall; everyone who helped to sort through and display the piles of donations, and of course all the shoppers, and thanks for all the hard work put in to planning, hosting and cleaning-up.

The day was a tremendous amount of fun, with community members visiting and shopping while contributing to our library. It is so wonderful to see our youngsters like Abby Webster and Katherine Stillinger already participating in community service.

A very good time was had by all at the Big Valley Inn Crib on Sunday, Oct. 17. Six people were out with 14 players participating. 1st was Ernie Petrussa, 2nd Bob Authenac, 3rd Eileen Green with the booby going to Donna D. Mike Noon-Ward was the lucky draw winner. Thanks to all participants for their continued support and welcome to all the new players from Stettler.

Crib at the drop-in centre attracted 10 players this past Sunday. 1st was Andy Clarke, 2nd Violet McCarty, 3rd Ella Hockley with the booby going to Lynne Palmer. Beginning next week, crib at the drop-in will begin at 1:30 p.m. See you there.

The Big Valley Drop- in Centre will be holding a pancake supper on Monday, Oct. 25 at 5:30 p.m. Your hosts will be Dorothy Dressler, Donna Clark and Phyllis Garrison. Everyone is welcome.

Coming Friday, Oct. 29, the Big Valley United Church is proud to present “Il Duo”, a dynamic musical comedy group from Edmonton. Join them for an evening of good, clean humour great for the whole family. For more information call Barb at 403-876-2711 or Reverend Susan at 403-876-2656.
