BIG VALLEY BULLETIN — A family fun night is coming to Big Valley. On Saturday, Feb. 4 the Cannonrose (that’s Ken and Rose Johnson) will be presenting their first “Still Enjoying Winter Mingle,” a fun, family-friendly break from the winter blahs. Come out and join them at the Jubilee Hall for some live entertainment by “Divided by J” who will be playing 1960s, 1970s and 1980s rock. There will be hotdogs, burgers and fries and a cash bar. While the adults are enjoying the evening’s entertainment, there will be kids’ activities taking place in the annex. The fun begins at 6 p.m. and will continue as long as everyone is having a good time. Come out and mingle and get to know your neighbours from near and far, again. For more information call 403-740-2632 or 403-741-9800.

Ten players came out for crib at the Big Valley Inn on Sunday, Jan. 22. Doug Harold took first place; Dale Kobe took second and Bernice Clausen took home third. Gloria Emblau went home with the booby and the regular draw. Hope to see everyone out again next Sunday at 1 p.m. New players are always welcome.

The Big Valley Legion will hold their first meeting of the new year on Monday, Feb. 6 at 7:30 p.m.

At the Big Valley Drop-In Centre, regularly scheduled activities have resumed after the holiday break. Floor curling takes place every Thursday afternoon beginning at 1:30 p.m. Monday and Friday night cards begin at 7:30 p.m.

There were 11 players for crib Sunday on Jan. 22. First place went to Dave Garstad, second to Lynne Gjaltema and third to Ron Milton with Donna Clark taking booby. Sunday crib is slated for Jan. 29, Feb. 5, 12, 19 and 26.

The Drop-In’s next meeting and potluck will be on Thursday, Feb. 16 at noon. Their next community pancake supper, sponsored by the United Church, is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 28 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

Coach Christy Rivett has informed us that we need to congratulate seven skaters from the Big Valley Skating Club who attended the Future Stars Fun Skate this past weekend in Stettler.

Our skaters did amazingly well and are bringing home a bunch of hardware. Congratulations to following skaters: Luke Rivett – 2 golds – elements & team; Aughtum Wilkie – 2 golds – elements & program; Blair Stewart – 1 gold – elements; Rilynn Stewart – 2 silvers – elements & program; Mya Miller – medal for elements; Cassandra Visser – 2 medals – elements & program; and Marie Claire Clark – 2 medals – elements & program.
