On July 6 a low bed truck tore out the power line and hydro end of the Telus line onto the Vavenby Bridge Road across from the fire hall.

Fire trucks were used to block traffic from going in and out of town, motorists were told to use Harmon Road instead. Several firefighters were flagging.

A Telus truck was present to repair the line and one firefighter said that it was a long afternoon as the job was not completed until about 6:00 p.m.

The next movie night at the Vavenby Christian Church is on July 20.

The movie, Grace Unplugged, is about a teenager who runs away from home to follow her dream of being a singer.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., the movie begins at 7:00 p.m. There will be popcorn and other snacks and beverages. Everything is free. Come on out for a good evening.
