Vermilion is Being Empowered (VIBE) held its first open pizza oven on the evening of June 30, kicking off its summer programs season. Under the watchful eye of volunteer Hayward Vater, summer students Brooklyn Nelson and Amanda Collins were learning the trade of fine pizza cooking while providing families with Family Grab and Go Bags to kick off the summer season.

Starting at 6 p.m. open pizza oven will be offered on Wednesdays all summer long, and is open to everyone, except for August 23, which is meant for teens only, and the food will be provided by VIBE that night. Any student that will be entering Grade 7 and older in September is invited to come to the Heritage Park that evening for free food and some socialization.
Remember to bring your pizza (thin crust and thawed if frozen), and all utensils and dishes you need to enjoy it after it is baked.
VIBE has several activities going on throughout Vermilion and the surrounding communities this summer, watch for posters or contact Pat Calyniuk at 780-853-3718.
