Big Valley Bulletin
A family fun night is coming to Big Valley. On Saturday, February 4 the CANNONROSE (that’s Ken and Rose Johnson) will be presenting their first “Still Enjoying Winter Mingle”, a fun, family friendly break from the winter blahs. Come out and join them at the Jubilee Hall for some live entertainment by “Divided by J” who will be playing 60’s, 70’s and 80’s rock. There will be hotdogs, burgers and fries and a cash bar. While the adults are enjoying the evening’s entertainment, there will be kid’s activities taking place in the annex. The fun begins at 6:00 p.m. and will continue as long as everyone is having a good time. Come out and mingle and get to know your neighbours from near and far, again. For more information call 403-740-2632 or 403741-9800.
