Celebrate “Christmas in the Village” in Big Valley

Rosco and Original Cowgirls provide live entertainment

By Linda Stillinger Big Valley Bulletin

Bundle up your friends and family and come on out to celebrate “Christmas in the Village” with us on Friday, Dec. 22. Beginning at 5 p.m. Big Valley will be bustling with a variety of family friendly activities and entertainment.

Come to the community hall for free chili supper, and an assortment of scrumptious cookies and beverages. Check out the last minute Christmas shopping with free gift wrapping for children and a children’s craft table organized by the Friends of the Big Valley Library.

Enjoy some first-rate entertainment brought to us by Rosco and our own Original Cowgirls, Lori, Dallas and Linda who will serenade us with lots of Christmas music and other old favourites.

Down at the arena, there will be free skating, hot dogs, hot chocolate and a bonfire sponsored by the Ag. Society.

Take a hay ride through Big Valley and check out the lights as villagers vie to win the “Best Decorated House Contest”, sponsored by the rodeo association. Regular rides from the hall to the arena will be available during the evening.

Come out and join us for an evening of fun family time and friendship in our wonderful village as we celebrate the holiday season in our community.

At the Big Valley Elks regular November meeting, plans were finalized for their annual turkey bingos which are scheduled for this Wednesday, Dec. 6 in Rumsey and next Wednesday, Dec. 13 in Big Valley. Action starts at 7:30 p.m. Come on out and try your luck.

On Tuesday, Dec. 12, the Elks will hold their annual Pin Night and Supper. Ribs by Bill and a potluck for the trimmings will be on the menu. Prospective members are encouraged to attend.

Disbursements were made to the Rumsey and Big Valley Children’s Christmas parties and the local Can Skate program. The Club Draw was won by Paul Elines who donated his share to the Elk’s Children’s Fund. Club 200 winners were Sue Boswell, Brenda Woods (twice) and Bob Nelson.

The Big Valley Elks were delighted with the great turn out at their annual fundraising supper and show on Nov. 25. The ladies put on an excellent meal and the show was a hit. The Elks would like to thank the Ag. Society for manning the bar so Elks members could enjoy a night out. Thanks to all the auction donors for their tremendous support. Dick Creasy did a fine job auctioneering and liberating many attendees of their hard earned cash. Thanks to Chris Rowland for all the time and effort he put in to make this event a success, and a special thank you to everyone who came out to enjoy the great meal and fun entertainment and for continuing to support the Elks organization.
