Community plots plans to ‘beautify’ Big Valley

It seems everyone is busy trying to keep up with the growing grass and gardening chores.

It seems everyone is busy trying to keep up with the growing grass and gardening chores.

Thanks to the Big Valley Beautification and Cultural Society and all the other volunteers who have been hard at work planting all the flowers to “beautify” our village.

If we could just get some warm weather and sunshine, we would be able to enjoy all the beautiful blooms.

The annual community garage sale for the Village of Big Valley is scheduled for Saturday, June 22. Anyone who wishes to be included in the listing is asked to register before 4 p.m. on Thursday at the Village office.

The Big Valley United Church will hold a garage sale on Saturday, June 22, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Donation items will be accepted on Friday, June 21, from 7 to 8 p.m., or contact Linda Garstad or Marion Annable to make other arrangements.

Please note that the next meeting of the Big Valley Historical Society, which will take place on Tuesday, June 18, is the annual meeting. There will be an election of officers taking place, along with the presentation of the annual financial statement.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the McAlister Motors Museum. Everyone is welcome to attend.

If your child is between the ages of three and four and potty-trained, and you desire a great start to your child’s future, it’s time to start thinking about playschool.

Beginning in September, Big Valley Playschool will run Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 12:20 to 3:20.

For more information or to register for the upcoming session, please call Big Valley School at 876-2771.

Attention all hockey players. Big Valley Minor Hockey will hold the annual registration night at the Big Valley Agriplex on Tuesday, June 18, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., immediately followed by a parents’ meeting to discuss teams.

Please note that there will be a $100 late fee charged to anyone registering after this date. All new players must bring their birth certificate, as well as their Alberta Health Care card. If you don’t reside within the Big Valley minor hockey boundaries, you’re required to bring all relevant paperwork to the registration. For more information, contact Amanda Lucki at 403-876-2503.
