May 4 was Star Wars Day at the Vavenby Elementary. The students had previously decided which character they wanted to be and made masks to suit. On the day the children came dressed to look the part. One student explained that Star Wars was being held that morning because Yoda always said, “May the fourth be with you.”
Last potluck until fall
Vavenby Christian Church’s last community potluck luncheon until the fall was held on Wednesday, Apr. 25.
Approximately 25 people were present and they brought lots of delicious food to eat. Colleen Rothwell made an excellent turkey rice soup.
Plan to come out in the autumn to join in the fun and companionship.
Lambing season now over
The self-guided tours at the Aveley sheep ranch are over as the sheep are now out in the fields. About 500 people came to see the sheep and cuddle the orphan lambs.
Water restrictions began on May 1 and will continue until Sept. 1. The restrictions are the same dates every year and with odd numbered houses watering on odd days and even numbered houses on even days.
If people do not follow these regulations they will be fined, as the restrictions will be strict this year.
The May movie, Lilies of the Field starring Sydney Poitier, will be on Friday, May 18, at Vavenby Christian Church. There will be popcorn and other snacks plus water, coffee, and pop.
Crib at the hall is finished now until the fall.
