Kids Halloween Party Coordinator - SADLY no event will be held this year due to this position being vacant. This is such a special community event that needs a coordinator, training AND SUPPORT will be provided and we have so many decorations and activities to pull off this great event. Lots of help available including school students and past organizers. It happens so easily if someone just takes the reins.
Special thanks to the MD of Big Horn No. 8 for the Community Services Grant providing funds to the Water Valley Community Association so we could replace the aging computer we use for tracking association finances.

WE THANK YOU
1 If you have driven by the WV Outdoor Rink recently you may have noticed we had posts installed around the rink for lighting! We would like to send a BIG Thank YOU out to LEE MORROW and the COCHRANE FORTIS team for their hard work and a special THANKS to BRETT PHILLIPS and all the VOLUNTEERS who helped make it happen!
The WATER VALLEY OUTDOOR RINK is a popular recreation nucleus for local residents and draws many people from all around our county and beyond. With the new post we will be able to LIGHT UP OUR RINK during these uncertain times and provide a much needed escape for all ages and abilities of skaters to enjoy throughout the darkest days of the year!
We are looking for volunteers to help maintain the rink (clearing snow, managing flooding, maintenance, etc.) for the 2021/2022 skating year. Rink coordinator is Ted Palendat - email@example.com Thank you to all From TED and the WATER VALLEY COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION EXECUTIVE!
A few words...
Are we so quaint & tiny we go unnoticed? Is there a black hole we sneak into off Highway 22 North as we turn the 8 km to get to our little treasure?
The answer is yes to all. We are a well kept secret that is loved by those day trippers who know, and guarded by the few who can call it home. We get to live in a postcard and in the winter in a snow globe.
Our '4-way stop' is historic, rustic, thoughtful and slow.
All these things are what we enjoy the most about it, and we promise it's what you will notice too.
Life in a small town means you know your neighbors so everyone is friendlier and more invested. Our businesses are small and run by families who believe in community in all sense of the word. We have an amazing golf course, hardware store, general store, a Meadery, and adorable events church, a library, a western saloon famous for its tradition Wednesday wing nights, a rustic liquor store, a calendar of events like the Celtic-Folk Festival, Water Valley Days, Art Shows and our picturesque Water Valley Rodeo. William J. Bagnall Wilderness Park, a swimming hole with a rope swing, endless Instagram worthy hiking trails, and sunsets that can knock your socks off.
Seriously, if you have never come, it's time to get out here...
Thank you to our Partners...
