Volunteers keep community alive

Big Valley United Church would like to thank all those who helped in any way to make our fall supper such a success this past weekend.

Big Valley United Church would like to thank all those who helped in any way to make our fall supper such a success this past weekend.

Each year, we seem to have more support. Whether you organized, donated food, peeled vegetables, helped cook, serve or clean up — or if you came to enjoy the food and fellowship — thank you.

Bill, we couldn’t do this fundraiser without your help, expertise and generosity.

To all the students and staff from the Big Valley School who helped, a special thank-you. It’s encouraging to know we have those who will help not only now, but in the future as well. Volunteers keep our church and community alive.

We are all so happy that the Big Valley Oil Kings senior AA hockey club is back in full swing for the 2012-13 season. The team has been busy, with four skates in Stettler, and management is putting together the roster for the coming season.

With some exciting changes to the roster, the Kings are excited about the on-ice product entering this season.

As with every organization, as each season begins, the hunt is on for volunteers. If you would be interested in game-night volunteering, contact Dustin Edwards at 403-740-5483. We are always on the lookout for admission door, 50/50 and other support staff throughout the hockey season. Our games can’t run smoothly without our great volunteers!

The Oil Kings’ home-opener is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 3, at 7:30 p.m. Come on out and support the team.

Here are the Big Valley crib results for Sunday, Oct. 14: Eight players were out for the afternoon. First place went to Jack Groat, second to Vi McCarty and third to Margaret Levesque, while the booby went to Len Shaw.

This week, the lucky draw winner was Margaret Levesque, while Caroline Pound won the 50/50 draw. Everyone had a great time. New players are always welcome.

There were 34 people at Big Valley’s weekly Hall Board Bingo this past Thursday. There was no winner for the progressive jackpot, so it will be at $326 next week.

The consolation winner was Brenda Woods. The bonanza winner was Connie Anderson, with the consolation going to Lillian Shell. The loonie pot is sitting at $65.

The next Bingo will be this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Come out and join in the fun.

The Big Valley Hall Board is on the lookout for callers for their Thursday night Bingo. Training is available, if you’re not sure you could do the job.

It’s a lot of fun and a great way to serve your community. If you’re willing to give it a try, call Donna at 876-2285 or Sharon at 876-2779.

The 2012 Big Valley “Christmas Craft Show and Sale” is only a month away. Always a big draw in the pre-Christmas rush, this event is a great showcase of our local talent. To book a spot in the show for Saturday, Nov. 17, contact Andrea at 403-876-2064.
