There are a lot of Christmas events in the near future in Vavenby. Everyone should mark their calendars with the dates so that they don’t forget.

The first two are open houses. Doris Scarff is having an arts and crafts sale at her home at 337 Ruby Road. Dates are from Nov. 30 – Dec. 2, hours are from noon – 6 p.m. As Scarff says, “Come out and see what we have to offer.”

The other open house is held by Hilda Reimer on Lost Creek Road. Reimer’s is Nov. 30 – Dec. 7, from 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. She always has a lot to offer that would make good presents.

There won’t be a lunch in December so come out now and enjoy the company.

Dec. 10, at 5 p.m. is the Christmas community potluck supper at the hall. There will be live music and Santa will take some time off from making his toys at the North Pole to make an appearance.


The church is holding its annual community Christmas in the Village on Sunday, Dec. 18, at 11 a.m. There will be a short Christmas message, Christmas carols, with a lunch to follow. Come on out to get into the spirit of Christmas with the singing of the carols and the gathering of the community.
