The North Thompson Valley fire chiefs meet monthly to discuss how things are going at each station and to come up with possible solutions for any problems. The meetings rotate from McLure to Blue River.

This month’s meeting was held on Mar. 18 at the Vavenby fire hall. Charlotte Cederholm cooked a lunch of lasagna, Caesar salad, garlic bread, peas, and black forest cake for dessert. Everyone ate first and then the meeting started around noon. Vavenby’s fire chief Sean Dawson said that the lunch was wonderful.

Five chiefs attended plus Thompson-Nicola Regional District representative Ron Storie and retired fire commissioner Bob Hickey. Hickey now consults.

Spring is here

It may officially be spring but the weather did not seem to agree on its first day. However, Seth Moilliet reported that he saw 13 robins on the Aveley Ranch on Mar. 19. If the birds are coming back then surely it must be spring?

There will be a big Easter egg hunt at the Aveley Ranch on Saturday, Apr. 7. Check out their website, aveleyranch.com for more information.

Self- guided tours at Aveley Ranch will be taking place from April 1-25. For more details go to the website.
