The Pilates and aerobics classes are both being done on Mondays and Thursdays from 10 – 11 a.m. at Vavenby Community Hall. A group of six women regularly show up both days.
Pilates are on-floor exercises and aerobics are what the women think of a dancing type of exercise. The ladies enjoy doing both and feel that they are good exercises for this time of year. There is a drop-in charge of $2 to help pay for the liability fee for the use of the hall and for any needed equipment. The large television used was donated by Heidi Hess of Clearwater.
New students miss trips
The Vavenby Primary School has two new students but they unfortunately didn’t arrive until after the two ski trips the other children went on.
The first trip was to Clearwater ski hill on Jan. 17 for some downhill skiing. The children didn’t get any lessons because they said that they all knew how to ski. Some went down the big hill but most stuck to the bunny hill. Student Cadence Busse said that fellow classmate Brody McColl was awesome as a skier.
The class went by bus to Wiegele’s in Blue River on Jan. 23, where they competed in a cross-country ski race against Raft River, Barriere and Blue River students. The Vavenby children all had a good time and were very proud to bring home a gold medal – Cadence Busse, a silver – Dayton Flegel, and a bronze – Gavin Prince. The class felt that all of the practice they had at school helped them to win. Wiegele’s provided lunch for everyone.
Theft at Thrift Store
Volunteers at Fine Things Thrift Store were upset to report that someone stole $47 worth of very fine jewellery from the store. Each piece of jewellery was in an individual box and all boxes had all been thrown under the storage bin just beside the store.
That money stolen would have gone to people in Vavenby who needed help, to the hospital, and other causes. The volunteers at the store were very upset and angry.
