Vavenby Trails and Recreation Society held its second annual Valentine’s Day breakfast at Vavenby Community Hall on Sunday morning, Feb. 12.

Sausages, ham, pancakes, scrambled eggs, coffee, tea, and juice were served. Judy Tobin, Charlotte Cederholm, Reita Vandenborre, and Barb Pennell helped out in the kitchen.

Approximately 42 people came out to enjoy the delicious food and visit with one another. The hall was a very cheerful place.

Youngsters decorate hall

The Vavenby Elementary School students were kept busy last week doing various Valentine projects. The children made most of the decorations for the Valentine breakfast, making the hall look very festive. The society would like to thank the children for the time and effort they put into creating the decorations.

On Friday, Feb. 10, the students made heart-shaped folders to decorate and hang on their desks. The big and little hearts were already drawn on pink construction paper and the children were told to cut on the pencil lines. For decorations there were glittery wire strips that most students bent into the shape of hearts and glued onto their folders.

Some of the older students helped the kindergarten girls make them, such as Moira Chrystall helping Cate-Lin Tourond and teacher Bryan Cederholm helping Charlie MacDonald Jones.

Besides the wire there were also felts and different coloured sparkles. The students knew that after putting the sparkles on their art work they should take the work to the garbage to shake the excess sparkles off. Part of the decorations was putting their name on their folders.

Then the teacher stapled the hearts together and taped them onto the desks. The folders were to be used to put the cards in that the children brought for each other.

Movie next month

On Sunday, March 11, the Vavenby church will be showing the movie War Room. It is a feature length movie so it will begin at 11 a.m. Popcorn will be provided.
