The newly formed Vavenby Trails and Recreation Society, a group made up of people wanting to provide community support and to bring residents closer together, hosted its first event on Sunday morning, Feb. 14, at Vavenby Community Hall.

The event was a Valentine’s’ breakfast. The society changed the times to a half-hour earlier so that people could attend the breakfast and still not miss church.

Reita Vandenborre met everyone at the door where they paid or handed in their prepaid tickets. Vandenborre had them sign the guest book and fill out a slip of paper for the draw and one for each child as well.

Charlotte Cederholm, Wendy Pollard, and Nina Douglas were busy in the kitchen preparing the delicious breakfast of scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausages, ham, taking the orders, and handing them back.

Linda King and Judy Tobin were helpers, wandering around the room acting as waitresses, replenishing the bowls of fruit slices, the coffee and tea pots, and the orange juice.

King gave a speech about the society and how it was going to try to keep Vavenby together. It is looking for more members. To be a member you pay $1 and must be counted on to help when needed.

The adult draw winners were Isaac Moilliet who won a bag of chocolates and a mug, Savannah Dee who won a key chain, and Cathy Tucker who won a love bell. The only child winner was Kelsey Rexin. She won a little bag of chocolates with a little pink teddy. All winners were thrilled.

The breakfast was a great way to start the day. The approximate 75 to 80 people who attended sat around just talking and enjoying the company of others.

Town yard sale planned for May

Vavenby Trails and Recreation Society is planning a possible town yard sale sometime in May.

Everyone who wants to take part will be charged a small fee to have their home put on a town map and people will go door to door. The money charged will be to cover the costs of the maps, advertising fees, etc.

Young fry at school

At the last Strong Start class at Vavenby Primary School the girls made Valentine’s cards with doilies inside of them.

The salmon eggs at the school have now hatched and the fry are living off of their yolk sacks. The students will soon be feeding them.

Monthly potluck lunch


Vavenby Christian Church’s potluck lunch for February will be held on Wed. the 24th. Come on out, bring a friend, and enjoy the friendly atmosphere and good food that everyone supplies
