The Friends of the Big Val­ley li­brary will be host­ing “Chair Yoga”, pre­sented by HJC Care Ser­vices on Tues­day, Mar. 1 from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Big Val­ley Train Sta­tion. This begin­ner course will run ev­ery Tues­day for 6 weeks.

Chair Yoga teaches us to lengthen and soften the breath, calm the mind and strengthen the body. With enough prac­tice, pa­tience and ef­fort, you will en­joy an im­proved sense of phys­i­cal, men­tal, spir­i­tual and emo­tional well­be­ing. Chair Yoga is ben­e­fi­cial at any age so come and en­joy some re­lax­ing phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity!

With Big Val­ley’s tourist sea­son just around the cor­ner, we take this op­por­tu­nity to rec­og­nize the Big Val­ley His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety’s con­tin­u­ing con­tri­bu­tion to our vil­lage.

They own and main­tain two pro­vin­cial her­itage sites—St. Ed­munds Angli­can church (the blue church) and the Al­berta Wheat Pool el­e­va­tor. Their main mu­seum, the McAl­is­ter Mo­tors build­ing lo­cated on Rail­way Av­enue fea­tures cars, trucks and house­hold an­tiques. They own the two green bag­gage cars lo­cated by the rail­road sta­tion, hous­ing more an­tiques and also all the an­tique farm equip­ment lo­cated in the McAl­is­ter com­pound and across the street. Their new Tool Mu­seum is slated for grand open­ing cel­e­bra­tions this year. In ad­di­tion to all th­ese dis­plays and mu­se­ums, they have an archival col­lec­tion of over 5000 dig­i­tal­ized pho­tos, 5 his­tory books, and many doc­u­ments and fam­ily files and fold­ers.

Dur­ing the months when Al­berta Prairie Steam Tours is run­ning the tourist trains, the His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety’s list of vol­un­teers en­able them to open up all their fa­cil­i­ties for view­ing as well as sup­ply­ing driv­ers and nar­ra­tors for the tour wagon tak­ing vis­i­tors to and from the Com­mu­nity Hall and con­duct­ing tours of the vil­lage. We thank the His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety and all their vol­un­teers for their ded­i­ca­tion to our Vil­lage’s her­itage.
