This year’s Parade of Trees was a fabulous success – thanks to YOU! We sold out!
We sold a record number of trees this year, exceeding our expectations and raising $3000.00 for the North Shore Disability Resource Centre.
In addition, we collected for the Lynn Valley Legion’s Toy Drive and of course, put our order in for perfect weather for our Lighting Ceremony. *smile*
The Tree Lighting Ceremony was an incredibly fun family oriented event with live music by The Heels, face painting and of course, the children put their creative skills to work to make beautiful lanterns to walk in the parade that wound through the urban forest, lighting the way as we counted down to the magical moment.
Mistress of Ceremonies, Cathy Kuzel, President of The Connected Woman Association kept things running smoothly and was joined by DNV Mayor Mike Little, North Vancouver-Seymour MLA Jane Thornthwaite and DNV Councillor Jordan Back when it came time to hit the big button to light up the Village.
A special thank you to Stefanie Donohoe for her dedication, tireless energy and incredible positive energy for making it all come together. We love you! (special mention to Jeff Donohoe for his patience and understanding!)

We are busy preparing for our 8th Annual Parade of Trees!
For the past 8 years the Lynn Valley Community Association has worked to bring people, families, businesses and schools, places of worship, associations and organizations together at the Lynn Valley Village Christmas Parade of Trees which is now firmly established as a family favourite tradition. During the month of December this tradition sees Lynn Valley Village transformed into a magical forest of creatively decorated Christmas trees.
Sponsoring a tree is a perfect opportunity to promote your business or organization, and at the same time, support families in need and help to build a stronger community here in Lynn Valley.
We are asking you to renew your sponsorship or become a new sponsor. Why? $50 from every $250 tree sponsorship is donated to an organization or charity that helps fill a need in our community with remaining net proceeds going to support the continuing work of LVCA; such as the Speaker Series, trail improvement projects and community events. Plus, at the lighting ceremony, toys are collected for the Lynn Valley Legion Toy Drive. It’s all about community!
New for this year! Want to make a bigger impact but not sure how? Upgrade your sponsorship to “You + One”! This sponsorship includes two trees for $500 – one for yourself and one to be ‘gifted’ to a local elementary school or non-profit to decorate. As a thank-you for your generosity, your name and/or logo will be included on event marketing material including social media.
Want to pick your tree location? Be one of the first 25 to secure your tree spot with payment. First come, first served basis. Included with this letter is a registration form with payment instructions.
Trees decorating is Friday, November 31st & Saturday, December 1st, with the Grand Lighting Ceremony on December 2nd at 4:30 pm.
For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or to sponsor a tree, complete the accompanying application form. Thank you! We truly appreciate your support and community spirit!
