An Entity of Type: List of local urban districts in Manitoba, from Named Graph: http://dbpedia.org, within Data Space: dbpedia.org

Vita (/ˈvaɪtə/; Ukrainian: Вайта, romanized: Vaita) is an unincorporated community recognized as a local urban district in southeast Manitoba settled by Ukrainian immigrants in the late 1890s. It is roughly 50 km (31 mi) by road from Steinbach (via PTH 12 and Provincial Road 302) in the Rural Municipality of Stuartburn. The community's name was originally Shevchenko. The name of the village and the post office was changed to Vita in 1910, because when the railroad came through, the rail-line laying foreman (who was of Italian background) reserved his right to name stations along the line in Italian (though the pronunciation was Anglicized).

  • Vita (/ˈvaɪtə/; Ukrainian: Вайта, romanized: Vaita) is an unincorporated community recognized as a local urban district in southeast Manitoba settled by Ukrainian immigrants in the late 1890s. It is roughly 50 km (31 mi) by road from Steinbach (via PTH 12 and Provincial Road 302) in the Rural Municipality of Stuartburn. The community's name was originally Shevchenko. The name of the village and the post office was changed to Vita in 1910, because when the railroad came through, the rail-line laying foreman (who was of Italian background) reserved his right to name stations along the line in Italian (though the pronunciation was Anglicized). Vita has a multi-cultural population with residents from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, the largest being Ukrainian and Mennonite. Vita is served by "Shevchenko School" (part of the Border Land School Division), built in 1970. It educates Kindergarten through Grade 12. From 1965 until 1991 the Ukrainian language (in the Canadian Ukrainian dialect) was taught as an option at the elementary and secondary levels – parallel to the French language. Businesses and services in Vita include, but are not limited to: a restaurant, fuel station, hospital, credit union with drive-thru ATM, post office, two grocery stores, an arena-curling rink, a liquor store, and a hotel-motel. Vita is known for its large Canada Day celebration on July 1 of each year. The event generally includes a softball tournament, rodeo, beer gardens, and live entertainment. The night is capped off by a fireworks display. In the 1950s and 1960s, Vita was known for staging major, high-priced baseball tournaments hosted by the community's two teams. The Vita Cubs and Vita Mallards played distant teams like Angusville from the Saskatchewan–Northwest Border district; Chatfield/Grosse Isle in the Interlake; Kenora, Ontario; Greenbush, Lancaster, and Karlstad, Minnesota; Plum Coulee/Winkler to the west & many other teams (Grunthal, St-Pierre-Jolys, Vassar, Dominion City, Sundown, etc.). The 1955 Vita Cubs team was elected into the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame along with Steve Derewianchuk, catcher. The Vita Mallards played in Senior Baseball Championships and in the Winnipeg Senior Baseball League as the St. Boniface Mallards. The Vic Bozyk Memorial Trophy in the Manitoba Junior Baseball League is named in honour of Victor Bozyk, who was a dominant pitcher for the Cubs and a major contributor to junior baseball in Manitoba.

  • At Vita on that afternoon, a friendly ball game was in progress in the new ball park. The sky that a few minutes before had a bright blue, dotted by fluffy clouds grew grey and sullen. The dark clouds seemed suddenly to swoop to earth & blast the town. A tornado swept through the streets overturning buildings, crushing homes & ripping the roof off the hospital. Chimneys, telephone & hydro poles were broken & torn down unto the streets. Two minutes of terror. Miraculously no one was killed; but nine persons were severely injured & had to be taken to hospitals at Morris, Winnipeg & Steinbach. A total of 40 persons were given first aid by Dr. Waldon in the wrecked hospital before it was closed. Vita's High School, recently elevated to the status of Collegiate Institute, resembled a debris of giant toothpicks. All that remained of the two story 8 room school was one broken wall, ready to topple. The full force of the tornado struck Vita at 4:28 p.m. CST. (en)
