Community events planned for Vavenby

Vavenby Christian Church's first community potluck lunch of the season will be on Oct. 26

Vavenby Christian Church’s first community potluck lunch of the season will be on Wednesday, Oct. 26, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Come on out, share in the camaraderie, and meet the new residents.

The community Hallowe’en party organized by Kathy Cederholm and Val Bellows is coming up. It will be held at Vavenby Hall on Monday, Oct. 31. There will be free hot dogs, hot chocolate, and coffee.

The doors will open at 6 p.m. and the costume parade will be at 7 pm. Adults, please come dressed up too.

There will be a bonfire after the parade.

To end the party, the Vavenby volunteer firefighters will set off fireworks.

To help pay for the fireworks, donation jars have been set up at the post office and at the store. The Vavenby crib and darts club donated $150 to help pay for the party. TNRD gave $500 to Vavenby Trails and Recreation Society in support of the community Hallowe’en party.

Everything for the party has been covered by donations. Way to go, Vavenby!
