News From the Valley Neighbours Club


Our general meeting welcomed the faithful few on Thursday.

I’m impressed with our board of directors and feel sure the well-being of the club is in very capable hands.

Tickets for the Easter dinner are selling very quickly, so, if you plan to attend pick up your tickets soon.

Items for the silent auction may be dropped off any time the club rooms are open, which is basically six days a week.

We have an awesome concert to look forward to on April 7.

Doris Daley and Eli Barsi will be showcasing their newest CD, Once Upon the West, at the Royal Canadian Legion Turner Valley Branch.

Tickets will go on sale at the Sheep River Library and the Legion in Turner Valley and Bohemia in Black Diamond on March 9.

Get your tickets soon as I would be very surprised if this isn’t a sellout.

Our garden club meeting tomorrow, March 8 at 1:30 p.m., will welcome a speaker on the feeding and nesting of bluebirds.

Come and join us if this is a topic of interest to you.

Don’t forget this is the weekend to turn your clocks ahead an hour at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 11 or failing that, before you go to bed on Saturday night so you’re not late for church on Sunday morning.

Kristin Hannah’s newest book, The Great Alone, is out and I can hardly wait to open it.

It is billed as daring, beautiful and a stay-up-all-night story.

Did you ever wonder why we have leap years? If there were no leap years, eventually February would be a summer month.

Earth’s orbit around the sun takes 365.25 days and it’s the .25 that’s the culprit.

Without correction, the calendar year would be off one day after four years, so a leap day is added every four years.
