It’s a busy weekend for Big Valley

The weekend kicks off with the Big Valley Vendor's Show on Saturday, April 8 starting at 9 a.m. at the Community Hall.

BIG VALLEY BULLETIN — The Big Valley Elks held their 90th anniversary on Tuesday, March 28 in conjunction with their annual Past Exalted Ruler meeting and Oyster Feed. The Provincial President and his wife came for the occasion and he presented Brother Meyer with a commemorative plaque.

Approximately 70 people showed up for the Oyster Feed prepared by Brother Bill Smillie. It was an excellent feast. Elks from Delburne, Castor, Hallkirk, Stettler, Hanna, and Trochu were present. Brother Meyer, who acted as MC, gave a brief history on the lodge and there were pictures and past memorabilia on display. Ninety years have passed and the lodge has served this area very well. Five new members were initiated as well.

Big Valley Fire Dept. members manned the bar for the evening and a disbursement was made to them and presented to Dustin Edwards. Our community is fortunate for the service these guys and gals do for us.

Trochu Elks will be celebrating their 90th anniversary on Saturday, Aug. 12, so mark your calendars accordingly. The district meeting is scheduled for Castor on Saturday, April 8 at 4 p.m.

Big Valley is happy to announce the first annual Vendor’s Show on Saturday, April 8 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Big Valley Community Hall. For more information contact Tammy Morrow at 403-430-0420.

The Friends of the Big Valley Library are bringing a Belly Dance Basics Workshop to the Big Valley Train Station on Saturday, April 8 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Come out and have some fun learning basic steps, isolations and even simple choreography. To register please contact the library at 403-876-2642.

The Big Valley Legion will be holding a Vimy Ridge parade on Sunday, April 9 at 1 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend.

Big Valley United Church also reminds everyone to join them at their annual Ham Supper and Silent Auction scheduled on the same day from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Big Valley Community Hall.

In recognition of Canada’s 150th birthday, this year the Village of Big Valley will be planting mainly red and white flowers for the summer season. Public Works already planted about 150 red and white tulips around the village last fall. We all are looking forward to seeing them pop up soon.

Big Valley residents are encouraged to think red and white when planting or decorating this year help the village look great while we celebrate.
