Christmas at the Cottage is a wonderful experience

Hilda Reimer held her annual Christmas at the Cottage craft sale at her home northeast of Vavenby from Nov. 30 to Dec. 7

A photo by Hilda Reimer named Mountain on Fire is of Mt. Sir Donald in the Roger's Pass. It was one of the items on sale during Reimer's annual Christmas at the Cottage craft sale.

Hilda Reimer held her annual Christmas at the Cottage craft sale at her home northeast of Vavenby from Nov. 30 to Dec. 7.

The number of customers started low but did pick up, maybe because of the snow. Overall there were not as many people as last year but there were plenty of new ones.

Reimer was selling all her own work – glass work, pictures made from her photographs, and calendars with her own photos.

This was Reimer’s ninth year putting on Christmas at the Cottage. It is always a wonderful experience to come out and see what she has created.

Youngsters make pottery ornaments

On Tuesday, Dec. 6, the Vavenby Strong Start children started the day off by decorating gingerbread men, snowmen, and trees made from paper. They had stickers to put on and other items such as mouths, eyes, stick arms, and stick legs to glue on.

Then their Christmas pottery tree ornaments, made the week before, were painted. There was a lot of help from the moms. The tree ornaments have the year printed on them as a memento.

The ornaments will be put in the kiln at Raft River School this week and the children will take them home on the 13th.

After the painting of the ornaments it was snack time. The snacks are always healthy foods. It is at this time that Mrs. Jody reads a story. The children had some play time next before going home.

Last chance for darts and crib

Vavenby darts and crib are ending until the New Year. The last evening of darts will be Tuesday, Dec. 20,  and the last night of crib will be on Thursday, Dec. 22.


Both are played at the Community Hall and begin at 7 p.m. sharp. Darts  will start again on Tuesday,  Jan. 10, and crib will begin on Thursday, Jan. 12. Come on out and have a good time.
