Memorial golf tournament supports Big Valley library

The third annual Big Valley Memorial Golf Tournament was held this past Saturday, Sept. 11 at the Big Valley golf course. The day opened with golfers mingling over coffee and doughnuts at registration which started at 10 a.m. Nine holes of golfing fun followed the 11 a.m. tee off. The Annable, Bahan, Scott, Shaw and Stuber families sincerely appreciate everyone for coming out to make this year’s tournament such a great success. 65 golfers took part in the day’s festivities. Thank you to everyone for the donation of prizes and cash and to anyone who helped out in any way. Profits from this year’s tournament will be donated to the Big Valley Municipal Library and to the Big Valley School breakfast program.

A sure sign that we are beginning the fall season is the return of our regularly scheduled community events. After the summer hiatus, hall board Bingo will begin again on Oct. 7 at the Big Valley Jubilee Hall. Early bird is at 7:30 with Bingo beginning at 8 p.m. We welcome back all our regular players and invite everyone else to come out and join us for some fun.

An unfamiliar energy has been slowly building here in Big Valley over the past few months. With municipal elections right around the corner, citizens are beginning to discuss issues and speculate outcomes. Elections tend to bring a spark to a community like nothing else can, and here in the village, it is no different. Everyone has an opinion or a concern and it is vitally important to express them. This is the time to get things out in the open, to ask questions, and to have a say in matters that are important and relevant to our daily lives. Stay informed. Electing the right officials is central to ensuring that we continue to build the kind of community we want to live in and can be proud of. Every single vote is important. As a citizen of this community, make certain yours counts. Come election day, don’t forget to vote.
