At De­cem­ber’s Big Val­ley Coun­cil meet­ing, Dustin Ed­wards ap­proached coun­cil for per­mis­sion to put up signs at the north and south en­trances to the Vil­lage pro­claim­ing Big Val­ley as Home of PRCA 2016 World Cham­pion Sad­dle­bronc Rider, Zeke Thurston. Unan­i­mously in favour, Coun­cil has di­rected staff to work with Dustin on place­ment of the signs. We can’t wait to see the re­sults. Con­grat­u­la­tions Zeke, what an amaz­ing ac­com­plish­ment!

The Big Val­ley Elks De­cem­ber meet­ing was their an­nual potluck smorg and pin night. Elks mem­bers re­ceiv­ing pins were; Bob Nel­son for 55 years, Larry An­der­son for 50 years, Ken McFar­lan for 25 years, and Bob Boswell for 5 years. Con­grat­u­la­tions to them all for their ded­i­ca­tion and years of ser­vice. Brother Nel­son con­ducted the meet­ing that fol­lowed. Chris Row­land won the club draw and do­nated his share to the Chil­dren’s Fund.

The Elks an­nual turkey bin­gos were a great suc­cess. 68 peo­ple at­tended in Rum­sey and Big Val­ley re­ported the best at­ten­dance that any­one could re­mem­ber with 100 at­tend­ing. There were peo­ple from Red Wil­low, Red Deer, Cal­gary, In­n­is­fail, Del­burne and more than likely other lo­ca­tions that were not recorded. Many peo­ple, who sup­port the Elks each year, win or lose, were out in full force. The Elks would like to thank ev­ery­one for their continued sup­port. A new caller was “in­doc­tri­nated” for the two Bin­gos and other than a cou­ple of glitches and some good na­tured heck­ling, Chris Row­land did quite well for a novice caller who also is not a bingo player. Chris and other young mem­bers are fit­ting in to the or­ga­ni­za­tion quite well.

Club 200 win­ners for Novem­ber were: Gor­don & Anita Dick, Norm Silverstein, Sue Boswell, Ri­ley Baird. De­cem­ber win­ners were: Ch­eryl Elines, Henry Hennel, Kim Helmer and Ross Tem­ple.
