The Big Val­ley His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety vol­un­teers are extra busy now get­ting ready for the sum­mer sea­son. The first train is only a cou­ple of weeks away (May 14) and tourists are al­ready start­ing to drive into town. So­ci­ety vol­un­teers will be do­ing spring cleanup at the var­i­ous fa­cil­i­ties in the next few weeks. They have also started a bit of re­pair work in­side the blue church.

The dis­plays at the new mu­seum are fill­ing up fast and so is the build­ing. They may not be able to fit in Rod Miller’s whole col­lec­tion—who would have thought they would run out of room.

Mar­garet Levesque took first place, Lawrence Wilkie took sec­ond place and Stan Nat­tes­tad took third place. Caro­line Pound won the booby and Doug Har­rold won the reg­u­lar draw. The play­ers en­joyed de­li­cious fin­ger foods and drinks af­ter the games. Thank you to all the staff at the Big Val­ley Inn for their help and for host­ing the tour­na­ments.
