The Big Val­ley Le­gion’s St. Pa­trick’s Stew Day saw about 40 peo­ple come out to cel­e­brate the oc­ca­sion. Stew, bis­cuits, soda bread and trim­mings fol­lowed by green ice cream were the or­der of the day. Thanks to all the cooks and vol­un­teers who con­tinue to make this an an­nual suc­cess and thanks to ev­ery­one who comes out to sup­port the event. The win­ners of the so­lar panel raf­fles were Kathy Evans and Geneva Bal­com.
