Elks order toys for Purple Park – Big Valley Bulletin

At the Elks’ May meeting a new swing set and digger were ordered for the much anticipated renovation of the Purple Park. Rototilling and installation is on the agenda for the near future.

Upcoming events for June include Stettler’s Inter Lodge Golf on June 10, Big Valley’s Inter Lodge Golf on June 25 and the oyster supper at the June meeting on the 4th Tuesday of the month. May’s club draw was scooped up by Bill Smillie who donated his winnings to the Elks fund for Children. 200 Club Winners were: Anita Berg, Rita Kyncyl, the Fooks and Dylan Houston.

The annual Elmer Kerbes Memorial Golf Tournament was held on May 27. The day was beautiful, the mosquitoes took a holiday and a heck of good time was had by all. Busy Elks, with very capable assistants, served up a fine breakfast. Lloyd’s flapjacks with a little hint of Canadian, eggs and ham sure hit the spot. After a round of golf, beef-on-a-bun was served up. How can you go wrong with a menu like that? Thanks to Bill Smillie for donating ALL the meal items and coffee.

Special thanks to Marguerite and the Kerbes family for allowing us to honour Elmer with this tournament. Presenting each golfer with a monogrammed towel was a very thoughtful and much appreciated touch. Elmer will never be forgotten for his efforts in making this Community what it is, and this tournament, with its record turnout of 48 golfers, epitomizes what the community is all about.

Last, but definitely not least, thank you to all the generous people who loaned their golf carts for this event. They were very much appreciated, as Big Valley’s little course is a very challenging hike. The tournament was a very close contest, necessitating a count back by the head honcho, Len Currie. The winners were Brian Butterfield and his fine team mates, Doug Stormoen, Shirley Bignell and Bev Butterfield. Rumour has it that having Shirley on a team guarantees a win. Congratulations to the winners.
