The tradition of May Day in Vader has not only been passed down among community members, but has stayed alive through the efforts of its founder’s family members.
Started in 1952 by Lena DeAger, May Day continued under DeAger’s leadership until 1991 when she suffered a debilitating stroke. At that time, her daughters, Diana Trahanes and Wanda Smith, took over leadership of the festival, making sure it continued to be held the first Saturday of each May without missing a beat. However, Trahanes died last year and the future leadership of May Day was called into question, but Smith stepped up to make sure May Day 2013 could still happen and said she was very glad for the turnout and the weather on Saturday.
There has been some delay in fully implementing the new Post Office schedule. The new Window hours (11:30 – 3:30) are in effect, but Lobby hours remain the same (8 – 4:30) until a roll-up window and parcel lockers are installed. After that, the lobby will be open 24 hours a day and staffed only during Window hours.
Meanwhile, the town is getting all decked out for spring – the spring banners are hung, flowers and hanging baskets are ordered, and the flags are flying!

Father Bolduc succeeded Father Demers as pastor at St. Francis Xavier Mission, and he wrote: "I am greatly pleased with the character of the different nations and I get a great deal of pleasure living with them. They are generally gay and take teasing well. Since I have been with the Cowlitz Tribe I have not converted many. They are unwilling to submit because the conduct of some Canadian servants of the company (Hudson Bay Company) have scandalized them … On the 26th of February, I baptized and married an Indian Man and woman of the Cowlitz Nation. They are possibly the two kindest people of my mission, and I certainly would not change their society for that of many of the Canadians here. They will settle on the land and cultivate in the manner of the white man. The husband is a man of much wit; his wife, whom I have named Ludivine, takes care of my linens and makes me clothes that would not be scorned in Quebec."
