Cribbage runs high in popularity in Big Valley

The Remembrance Day service held last Wednesday at the Big Valley Jubilee Hall was well attended once again. The service included the Parading of Colours, the playing of Last Post and Reveille, and the traditional wreath laying service with over 40 wreaths laid in honour of our veterans. Reverend Susan Bowyer’s address was excellent, as usual, and Big Valley School’s new principal, Mr. Marjan Lenart delivered a touching tribute to the sacrifices given freely by the brave Canadian men and women of our armed forces.

Come on out to Big Valley this Saturday, Nov. 20 to check out our 10th annual Christmas Craft Show and Sale. Open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Jubilee Hall, this highly anticipated event never disappoints. On offer will be a fabulous array of unique arts, crafts, gifts and services showcasing the talents of our local artists and crafters.

Don’t forget Thursday night is Bingo Night beginning at 7 p.m. at the Jubilee Hall. Join in the fun, and maybe win a little cash. Hope to see you there.
