News from the Valley Neighbours Club


Well we’ve had our first fall snowstorm.

How did I miss the crows gathering to leave? Suddenly they are gone.

It’s probably time to check your smoke detectors and if, like me, you have electronic filters in your furnace, it’s a good time to take them to the car wash for their yearly cleaning.

I’m very sorry to have missed the dedication of Perdue Park. It’s a great play area for the kids and a fitting tribute to Jeremy Perdue who left us in early 2016.

Constable Perdue was an 11-year veteran of the RCMP and had been in Turner Valley for five of those years. He was very community oriented and his passing was a tragedy to his family and the community at large.

The Missus at the library last week was really interesting, and we all enjoyed Doris and Bruce’s presentation immensely on Saturday night.

I had seen it before, although there were some changes to the program, but you can’t get too much Doris Daley.

The opening act was great and we were all privileged to be introduced to Doris’ new husband, who is also a cowboy poet and singer.

Virginia has set Nov. 23 for our Wednesday Christmas bridge luncheon.

There is a sign-up sheet at the club and anyone who has played with us on Wednesdays is welcome to join us.

We will probably go out for lunch and back to VNC for the afternoon of bridge.

Line dancing started up again last Thursday. We have four new dancers, which brings our group up to about 24 so, needless to say, it’s becoming a very popular activity at the club.
