Pluses:  It was a great community to live in. The school was small but we had a great time. The grocerystore/postoffice was small but it had everything you wanted especially if you needed to go and get lunch. It was only a 5 minute walk. We had fantastic cristmas concerts in the hall till one christmas concert the furnace in the basement caught on fire. All the fathers ran down and put it out. There was a church that was said to be haunted...I'm sure that was a myth. All the families that lived in and around Elva were a huge family. Just a few names were the Reddaways, Penners, Bloomers, Roblins. Mr. Roblin was our school bus driver..a station wagon which held all us kids on the west side of the highway. I remember in the winter when the snow was so high. Mr. Roblin could not get the bus down the drive way so Brad... his son. ..drove the ski doo till the drive way and then Mr. Roblin would come and get my sister and myself on the skidoo. Mrs. Roblin was a sub teacher. I loved Elva.

Minuses:  There weren't any in my time. except for it was cold winters. I now live in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. where it is warm

A good place to...  for small and large families to raise their children. We always had tons of fun.

 Elva was not far from Melita which was a growing community.
