Vavenby church hosts potluck

Movie night and Valentine’s breakfast coming soon

By Robyn Rexin

Wednesday, Jan. 31, was the first community potluck luncheon of the new year at Vavenby Christian Church.

Approximately 27 people came out to enjoy visiting with one another and to help eat all of the great food. There were three wonderful soups – turkey noodle, smokey chick pea, and beef stroganoff – all made by Colleen Rothwell.

The next monthly community potluck luncheon will be on Wednesday, Feb. 28, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Everybody is welcome.

Church to hold movie night

This Friday will be the first free movie night at Vavenby Christian Church. Popcorn, pop, and coffee will be available. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

Valentine’s breakfast

This Sunday, Feb. 11, will be the Valentines breakfast sponsored by the Vavenby Trails and Recreation Society. It will be held 9 – 11 a.m. at Vavenby Community Hall.

Breakfast will consist of pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, ham, coffee, and juice. Cost will be by donation.

Thanks for the help

Kevin Sheffield, the resident who has in a large part been keeping Vavenby’s outdoor rink in good skating condition, weather permitting, would like to put out a thank you to whoever managed to clear the ice of the frozen snow ridges.

The rink is now once again in safer skating order.
