Big Valley Bulletin
Big Valley’s tourist season began right on time this past Saturday with the arrival of the first Alberta Prairie train of the season at 4:00 p.m. Local volunteers in period costume lined up at the station to welcome our visitors. Though it was a bit chilly, the sun shone down on our guests as they strolled through the village snapping photos and checking out the sights before enjoying a great meal. After the long winter hibernation, it was fun to watch the whole village resuscitate, but before we knew it, that familiar whistle called an end to the visit. We’re all looking forward to the next visit.
Each year the Royal Canadian Legion invites students from across the country to create artwork, poetry and essays promoting Remem- brance Day and honouring Canadian military heritage for their Annual Literary and Poster Contest. The Big Valley Legion will be presenting the local awards for the contest at the Big Valley School on Friday, May 19 beginning at 11:30 a.m. Everyone is welcome.
The Big Valley 4-H Beef Club held a mock achievement day on Sunday, Apr. 30. Over 30 steers and heif- ers were brought in for this day of learning about judging, clipping, grooming and showmanship. The 26 members of the club have all been working hard on their projects and are eagerly looking forward to achievement day.
The Beef Club invites everyone to their show and sale at the Stettler Agriplex on Monday and Tuesday, May 22 and 23. The heifer show is on Monday beginning at 2:00 p.m. and the steer show starts Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. with the sale to follow at 7:00 p.m. that evening. Let’s support our local 4-H members.
