Bronze boys: Valley Ball Hockey Association’s U11 team won bronze at the 2015 Western Challenge Cup Ball Hockey Tournament that was held in Surrey July 16 to 19. Valley triumphed over Manitoba 3-2 in overtime. The team, coached by Harry Gillis and Brad Wheeler, has 19 players between the ages of nine and 11 from Langley, Aldergrove and Abbotsford.

 

Battle lines: Art in the Plaza on July 25 in McBurney Plaza featured arts activities. Josh Palfreyman went toe to toe or rather brush to brush with Lisa Powers in a painting contest by the Makers Room art studio. The public got to pick the colours they used and watch as each created paintings.

 

As well as visual arts, the event included live music.

 

Outdoor films: The first Murrayville House Movie Nights in the Park was July 22 and brought out many movie buffs. The second movie night will feature the animated movie Home on July 29 while Pirates of the Caribbean will be shown Aug. 5. Murrayville House Movie Nights in the Park are hosted by Newmark Group at Denny Ross Park, 4700 Old Yale Rd. Before the movies start at dusk, there’s games, activities, and treats.
