It’s been a quiet week for news in Big Valley as village residents have been occupied with holiday preparations.

It’s been a quiet week for news in Big Valley as village residents have been occupied with holiday preparations. Shop windows have been cheerfully decorated and sweet treats are being shared. Children are busy with concert preparations as they excitedly look forward to the last day of school and Santa’s visit this Saturday. Students at Big Valley School were treated to a free pizza lunch this past Thursday. According to reliable sources it was scrumptious.

The annual Christmas dinner at the Big Valley Drop-in Centre was a great success with 71 members turning out to enjoy a traditional turkey dinner and some local entertainment.

Remember membership renewals are due by the end of March 2010. Membership advantages include bus trips, voting privileges, special events and of course the annual Christmas dinner. The weekly pancake suppers will resume on Jan. 11 at 5:30 p.m.

Bookings at the drop-in centre will be handled by Linda Schilling until May 2010. If you wish to use the facilities for your event, you can contact her at 403-876-2225.

A Christmas Eve Service will be held at the Big Valley United Church at 7:30 on Dec. 24.

Big Valley Municipal Library invites residents to continue to drop in during the holiday season. The library will be open on Dec. 22, 23, 29 and 30 from 9 a.m. to noon and from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
