Have you heard about “Small Town Saturday Night”? This is a good way to try to help your community achieve some extra funds for the Community Centre. For twenty five years the Big Valley Jamboree has enjoyed the support of fans from rural communities throughout Alberta. As a thank you for that ongoing support, the Big Valley Jamboree has decided to award one of these communities with a once in a lifetime opportunity to put your small town on the map. That’s why, in 2017, the Big Valley Jamboree will bring a mini Big Valley Jamboree to one lucky rural Alberta Community. Some of Canada’s finest musical entertainers could come to your small town. You can vote online for Delia and you can vote once every day. This could be a major fundraiser for Delia. Voting closes at midnight on February 15. You have to vote online, just go to this website: https:// www. bigvalleyjamboree. com/stsn/vote
Get well wishes go out to George Humphrey in the Olds hospital. George is allowed to have visitors, although he is quite ill, and would probably be very happy to see some of his old friends.
Happy Birthday wishes to Maria Whitman on the 13th of February and to Tanner Hansen on the 16th.
