Vavenby youth take part in Kamloops trip

Approximately 40 teens from the Y2C youth group (the Clearwater/Vavenby youth group) and six leaders went on a trip to Kamloops

Rip-rap lines the bank of the North Thompson River near the intake to Vavenby's water supply after a project to protect the site. The large rocks come from the Pennells' trailer court near Highway 5.

Approximately 40 teens from the Y2C youth group (the Clearwater/Vavenby youth group) and six leaders went on a trip to Kamloops on Friday, Nov. 16. They traveled in the Clearwater Baptist Church bus and stayed overnight at the Calvary Community Church in Kamloops.

Y2C was joined by about six other youth groups from Kamloops and the surrounding area. Everyone first played a game that took place inside and outside. Then a band made up of members of different churches played worship songs for everyone to sing, dance, and/or clap to. Guest speaker Tim Busse got up next to talk about ‚Äú… what is holding the teens back on their Christian walk.‚Äù Most of the youth, especially those from Kamloops, found the talk inspirational.

One of the Vavenby teens, Aireal Greene, said you could tell that just by looking in their faces. Seth and Isaac Moilliet later discovered that they were related to Tim Busse.

Before bed Y2C members had banana splits. In the morning they  had a breakfast of cereal, muffins, and juice at the church. They left Kamloops at 9:30 and arrived home around 11:00 a.m. Everyone had a good time. Youth leader Vienna Moilliet remarked, “It was a great youth trip. I mean, sure I got about two hours of sleep, my cold got worse, and I’m completely exhausted, but it was a fun time and I am so glad I got to be there!”

TNRD rip-raps riverbank

There is a water intake pipe that is at risk of being damaged due to the erosion of the river bank when the river runs high. Large boulders and rock known as rip-rap are being placed along the bank in front of the intake pipe to prevent further erosion.

Work started on Tuesday, Nov. 20 by Quality Contractors and finished on Thursday. The rip-rap was supplied by Barb and Tim Pennell. The TNRD covered all other expenses.
