Vavenby plans for Easter and other events

Vavenby's traditional Easter egg hunt will take place at the hall on March 27, 9 – 11 a.m

The Vavenby Trails and Recreation Society had a meeting on Thursday, March 10, to discuss some events they will be supporting.

Member Barb Pennell is organizing some Easter events. There will be two contests. Judging for both will take place at the community hall on Easter Sunday, March 27.

One will be a colouring contest. Pictures can be picked up at the general store. The other will be an Easter bonnet contest. Everyone uses their own hat to decorate and wears it at the hall. Winning pictures and bonnets will be awarded prizes.

Vavenby’s traditional Easter egg hunt will take place, also at the hall, on March 27, 9 – 11 a.m.

BYOC – bring your own china

A Mothers’ Day tea has been planned for May 8, 11 – 3 at the community hall. Coffee, tea, and goodies will be offered.

If someone wishes, they can bring their own fine china – just don’t forget to take it home.

Donations to be given at the tea would be appreciated. The money is used to help the community.

Garage sale in May

A fifth event discussed was a community garage sale to be held on Saturday, May 7, 9 – 2.

There would be a fee to take part in the garage sale. The fee would be to put your house on the town map, for the making of the maps to be handed out, and for advertising.
