The Big Val­ley Elks held their 90th An­niver­sary on March 28 in con­junc­tion with their an­nual Past Ex­alted Ruler meet­ing and Oys­ter Feed. The Pro­vin­cial Pres­i­dent and his wife came for the oc­ca­sion and he pre­sented Brother Meyer with a com­mem­o­ra­tive plaque.

Ap­prox­i­mately sev­enty peo­ple showed up for the Oys­ter Feed pre­pared by Brother Bill Smil­lie. It was an ex­cel­lent feast. Elks from Del­burne, Cas­tor, Hal­lkirk, Stet­tler, Hanna, and Trochu were present. Brother Meyer, who acted as MC, gave a brief his­tory on the lodge and there were pic­tures and past mem­o­ra­bilia on dis­play. Ninety years have passed and the lodge has served this area very well. Five new mem­bers were ini­ti­ated.

Big Val­ley Fire Dept. mem­bers manned the bar for the evening and a dis­burse­ment was made to them and pre­sented to Dustin Ed­wards. Our com­mu­nity is for­tu­nate for the ser­vice these guys and gals do for us.

Pub­lic Works al­ready planted about 150 red and white tulips around the vil­lage last fall. We all are look­ing for­ward to see­ing them pop up soon. Big Val­ley res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to think red and white when plant­ing or dec­o­rat­ing this year… Help the vil­lage look great while we cel­e­brate!
