Vavenby Christian Church held a New Year’s Eve party at the church on Dec. 31. Approximately 38 people attended. Some of the children came dressed in their pyjamas. The  party began at 5:45 with a delicious potluck dinner. There was a wide selection of foods to choose from.

After dinner the adults played board games and some put a puzzle together. Some of the children joined in these games, some watched a video, and a some attempted table tennis in the hallway.

An excellent movie called The Ultimate Gift – it was both serious and humorous – followed the games. It was over just in time for the countdown to the new year and then the singing of Auld Lang Syne. Everyone had a great time.

New operator for water system

Vavenby has a new water system operator. The past operator, Bob Rexin, has retired and handed over the duties to new operator Ken Timms. Anyone with problems or questions can phone Timms at 250-674-3020. He does have a mechanical background, which is a plus.

There was a Christmas coloring contest at the Vavenby General Store. Winners were Courtney Prince, Mercy Flegel, Gavin Prince, Alexis Weber, Dakota Flegel, and Mom. All received a surprise and free movie rental.
