TNRD Area A representative Tim Pennell is impressed with the progress on the Vavenby Community Hall. Most of the new ceiling is in, the post and beams are out and have been replaced with shoring or support walls to hold the ceiling up until the trusses are put in. The crew has put shoring walls in downstairs as well to support the upstairs’ floor. These shoring are temporary.

Some of the crew have been working outside. They have taken off about three-quarters of the old siding and removed the entrance.

The TNRD received an $80,000 federal gas tax grant to help pay for the work being done on the hall. The rest of the money has come from capital reserves that had been built up.

The Christmas Craft Sale will be held at the community hall on Nov. 3. Table rentals are $10 per table. To rent your table/tables phone Barb Pennell at 250–676–9485
