The annual Township of LaVallee’s Community Christmas Party and Fun Day was once again a wonderful evening. About 60 people attended. A big thank you to Ron and Charlene McTavish and their family for organizing, cooking and all the other extras done to make this an enjoyable evening. Santa made an early visit and there were treats for all young people.
