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.

Our skaters did amazingly well and are bringing home a bunch of hardware.
