A First Aid/CPR class at City Hall has been rescheduled to March 28 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The cost remains $50 per person, with registration required beforehand. Those with questions may call City Hall at (360) 295-3222.

The Vader City Council has said they remain unchanged in their perspective against marijuana businesses in response to a public hearing held on the subject last month. Council members spoke, both during the hearing and at their Thursday meeting, about news articles illustrating the potential impacts they are worried may affect the town, with copies of such articles available for review at City Hall.

The council also reports they expect to approve a Hearings Examiner at their next meeting on March 12. Once a hearings examiner is in place, they have said, the city will be able to begin cracking down on nuisance properties that have been allowed to linger.

The next opening of the Vader Assembly of God Church's food bank will be March 10 from 10 a.m. to noon, while their next food giveaway will be March 18 from 10 a.m. to noon outside the post office. For more information on this and other church activities, call (360) 295-3756.
