Christmas craft show and sale to beat rush

The students and staff of the Big Valley School were lucky enough to enjoy a very delicious lunch on Tuesday, Oct. 16

The students and staff of the Big Valley School were lucky enough to enjoy a very delicious lunch on Tuesday, Oct. 16, thanks to the generosity of the Big Valley United Church.

The leftover turkey and buns from their fall supper were a fantastic treat.

The school’s Active Citizenship Class will host a garage sale this Thursday from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

And, finally, the school would like to extend a huge thank-you to everyone in the community for their wonderful participation and support with their annual magazine sales fundraiser.

At last count, students have managed to sell more than $8,000 worth of magazines, proving that once again, Big Valley is a great place to live.

The Big Valley Legion has scheduled a meeting for 1 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 5.

There were 10 players out for an afternoon of Crib at the Drop-In Centre this past Sunday. Lynne Palmer was first, Bob Boswell was second, and Earl Ortman came in third, with the booby going to Connie Whiteside. A good time was had by all.

The Big Valley Inn attracted 13 crib players this past weekend — first went to Len Shaw, second to Phil D’Aoust and third to Jack Groat, while the booby went to Joanne Murphy.

This week, the 50/50 draw was won by Donna D’Aoust and the lucky draw winner was Gladys Groat.

Everyone had a great time. New players are always welcome.

Twenty-one people were out for Big Valley’s weekly hall board bingo this past Thursday. Once again, there was no winner claiming the progressive jackpot, so it will be up at $345.

The $20 consolation was won by Myra Grieg. The bonanza winners were Russell Watts and Biff Balcom, with the consolation going to Shirley Vols and Sandra Schell.

The loonie pot now sits at $77. The next bingo will be on Thursday, Oct. 25, at 7:30 p.m. Hope to see you there.

It’s that time of year again. Plans have begun for the Big Valley Children’s Christmas Party scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 15.

As usual, everyone is welcome to attend the popular annual event, though gifts are arranged only for children 10 and under. Please pre-register with Brenda at 876-2420.

Don’t forget the 2012 Big Valley “Christmas Craft Show and Sale” on Saturday, Nov. 17. Always a big draw in the pre-Christmas rush, this event is a great showcase of our local talent.

For more information or to book a spot, please contact Andrea at 403-876-2064.
