The first meeting of 2015 for the Vader City Council is scheduled for this Thursday at 6 p.m. in City Hall. Be sure to look on the bulletin board to see what will be on this week's agenda, and bring your comments and concerns about city business to the meeting.
The Board of Commissioners for Cowlitz-Lewis Fire District 20 will also be meeting on Thursday at 7 p.m. at the fire hall for their first regular meeting of the year. Officials with the district have said they expect to continue seeking paramedic services from Lewis County Medic One, despite significant financial challenges faced by the agency, but still reserve the right to exercise a letter of withdrawal submitted in 2013, if the need arises.
The next opening of the Vader Assembly of God food bank is scheduled for Jan. 13 from 10 a.m. to noon, while the food bank will be open again on Jan. 27 from 10 a.m. to noon. Those unable to make it on either of these dates can attend the church's regular food giveaway outside the post office on Jan. 21 from 10 a.m. to noon. For more information, call the church at (360) 295-3756.
