A blog to share news, events and happenings for adults 55+ who live and play in the beautiful Lynn Valley area of North Vancouver BC

LVSA has, since 1999, provided recreational and social programs and events to seniors in our community. We are proud of our members who participate in a wide variety of programs. Many also volunteer in many ways to help keep everything on track.

Books, Baking, Bistro and Bottles

Were you there?

We had lots of volunteers come out to help us on the big day.  This is a huge physical undertaking for our members and we appreciate all the help we got in setting up.  Thanks to all who pushed tables, stacked books, priced baking, ran errands and  carried and carried and carried.  And, did you ever see such a speedy clean up?  Wow!  That must have been some kind of record...thanks, folks!

The Bottle Drive was steady with never more than we could sort and count comfortably.  Many people dropped by with a few items or some with a few large bags.  Even though the weather was a little chilly, everyone was smiling and we had time to chat.  Thanks to all our donors.

There were lots of books to choose from.

There was a lot of delicious baking...

Lovely handmade crafts...

And hot soups to warm us up.

These big sale days are as much about the friends we meet and the fun we have together as they are about the money we raise.  We did that, too!

Thanks to Barbara for the photos.

There were many of our members among the crowd out on November 11 to honor the veterans of all the wars.

The young trumpeter  (in the gray coat) played  the Last Post and Reveille - very haunting.

Those who worked hard to get a cenotaph in Lynn Valley have given us a great gift.  Those who are remembered on this day, have given us even more.

"We will remember them."

 Thanks to Peter for the photos.

We need you!

We have a big sale coming up and we need some more volunteers to help us make it happen.  Especially with cleanup and setup.  Please just phone and leave your name and number with the receptionist. 

Of course, customers are always needed, too.  So,  spread the word around your neighborhood about this great event.  We're helping the environment in all kinds of ways.  You'll also be able to buy a tasty treat or a soup and bun lunch.  Come on down!
