The Big Valley Royal Purple Ladies host their annual seniors’ day luncheon at the Big Valley Jubilee Hall today at noon. Area seniors (55-plus) were invited to the celebration.

The Big Valley 4-H Beef Club has had another successful show and sale! Congratulations to Faith Shuckburgh, who won “grand champion,” not only for the Big Valley Club, but also for the entire Stettler district.

Congratulations also to Nicole Zoller, who won “reserve champion” for Big Valley, to Dan Brown, who won “rate of gain” for the district, and to the Big Valley club for winning the longtime tradition “pen of five” trophy.

Thanks to all the buyers for helping to make the sale such a great success.

Attention: all minor hockey players and parents.

Big Valley Minor Hockey will hold the association’s annual registration night at the Big Valley Agriplex on Tuesday, June 18, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., immediately followed by a parents’ meeting to discuss teams.

Please note: there will be a $100 late fee charged to anyone registering after that date. All new players must bring their birth certificate, as well as their Alberta Health- Care card.

If you don’t reside within the Big Valley Minor Hockey boundaries, you’re required to bring all relevant paperwork with you.

For more information, contact Amanda Lucki at 403-876-2503.

The Big Valley United Church will hold a garage sale on Saturday, June 22, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Donation items will be accepted on Friday, June 21, from 7 to 8 p.m., or you can contact Linda Garstad or Marion Annable to make other arrangements.

The Big Valley School stages its annual track meet today for kindergarten to Grade 3 students and Thursday for grades 4 to 6 students. Big Valley School will be joined by students from Erskine, Byemoor and Botha to participate in some great sports on both of those days. Everyone is invited to pop by and cheer on the athletes.

As the school year begins to wind down, and students are busy with exams and fieldtrips, the staff and students would like to pass along their thanks to the community for all the support that the school continues to receive.

From financial support with transportation, breakfast programs, bottle drives and community calendars to attendance at Christmas concerts, awards days, and all the other events the school holds throughout the year, students and staff are much appreciative.

Congratulations to the Big Valley School Grade 9 students who celebrated their graduation last Tuesday. The grads all looked fantastic in their graduation finery. While it’s sad to see them go, we wish them all the best of luck in the future.

Big Valley’s graduating class extends heartfelt thanks to Bill Smillie for the great meal. “We couldn’t have done it without you,” the students said.
