Fourteen players came out for crib at the Big Valley Inn on Oct. 22. Stan Nattestad took first; Doug Harrold took second and Lawrence Wilkie took third. Gloria Emblau went home with the booby and Dorothy Annable won the regular draw. Next week they are going to try six games instead of eight. If you find eight is just too many, you might want to come out and try six games. The Big Valley Inn Crib players hope to see you all next Sunday at 1 p.m.

At the Big Valley Drop In Centre’s crib tournament, first went to Earl Ortman, second to Ron Milton, third to Lynne Gjaltema and the booby went to Adrice Clamp. Drop In crib takes place every Sunday at 1:30 p.m. Don’t forget, the next community pancake supper will be on Nov. 20 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

Mark your calendars for Nov. 18 and come by the Big Valley Community Hall from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to check out this popular annual event. Featuring handmade jewelry, homemade woodcrafts, handicrafts, sewing, Royal Purple fruitcakes, Big Valley Artists, Friends of the Library pie sale, handmade ceramics, hockey calendars, 4-H bake table and so much more, this event will be the place to be.
