Can you believe it, there are only three weeks until Christmas holidays.

Can you believe it, there are only three weeks until Christmas holidays.

The Big Valley junior highs have been making great progress on their annual Christmas Concert. Last week the grades 7/8/9’s auditioned for their character roles. The younger grades have been working hard, practicing a lot, trying to get their songs perfect for the big night. For their school fundraising effort, the students will be having a bake sale and holding a “Santa’s Little Helper” auction. Junior high students will be auctioned off in pairs during the Christmas concert with the highest bidders getting a day’s worth of work. Big Valley School students and staff hope to see everyone there to pick up some goodies, maybe buy a pair of Santa’s Little Helpers and, of course, to enjoy the great concert they have prepared for you. See you at the Jubilee Hall on Wednesday, Dec.16 at 7 p.m.

If you aren’t yet aware, the Historical Society has a Facebook page where they post pictures of their new building’s progress. A number of people have begun to follow the site, so if you do Facebook surfing, just search for the Big Valley Historical Society and check them out. Lately, they have been posting some older, historical photos—like the Village Hall in 1970 and the jail when it first arrived here. So far, comments have been quite favourable, so expect new postings regularly.

Fifteen players came out for crib at the Big Valley Inn on Sunday, Dec. 6. Lawrence Wilkie won first place and had eight perfect games. Mary Wilkie won second place, Lillian Kirtley won third place and Caroline Pound won the booby. Mary Wilkie won the regular draw. Hope to see everyone out again next Sunday at 1 p.m.

The Big Valley Drop-in Centre will be holding their December community pancake supper next Monday, Dec. 14 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome. The election of officers will be at the potluck and meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 15 at 12 noon. Seniors don’t forget to try out Monday and Friday night cards at 7 p.m., Sunday afternoon crib at 1 p.m. or stop by for coffee every morning starting at 8 a.m.

If you haven’t done it yet, please register your children for Big Valley’s annual Children’s Christmas Party taking place this coming Sunday, Dec. 13. Call or text Brenda at 403-740-6552 or Catrina at 403-741-7320.
