UPDATED: Donations are now on hold! Thank you for you generosity.

Your donations have really helped and we’ve been inundated with supplies. Thank you! Thank you! We are no longer accepting donations through Mollie Nye. We thank the staff for their help and energy.

ORIGINAL POST: This past year has seen many people face hardship as a result of the COVID pandemic, with more and more people finding themselves homeless here in Lynn Valley and across the North Shore.

Right now they need warm clothes: coats, gloves, hats, socks, sleeping bags.

You can support the vulnerable and the homeless by bringing donations of warm clothes to:

Mollie Nye House, 940 Lynn Valley Road, Monday-Friday 10am -4pm

Your donations will be delivered to the Lookout Shelter.

Clothes aren’t the only thing that can make a difference – cash is still a great way to help. If you would rather donate money, click on this link to the Outlook Foundation North Shore Programs https://lookoutsociety.ca/

Thank you!

YOU ROCK LYNN VALLEY!

It’s official – we’re a sell out!

And we couldn’t have done it without your sponsorship. With everything going on right now, we weren’t sure what to expect but all of you rose to the occasion and we will have an amazing display that’s going to spread some Christmas magic and hopefully bring a smile in a otherwise challenging time.

We have a record number of “You + One” Sponsors – companies/people who have purchased an additional tree to be gifted to a school or not for profit organization, and a small but dedicated group of volunteers that with “many hands make light work”. Watch our facebook page as we recognize their efforts in the coming weeks. Remember to LIKE our page while you’re there. *smile*

From all of us at Lynn Valley Community Association, our thanks!

P.S. a list of sponsors will be published shortly.

2019 Parade of Trees – Sponsor a Tree!

Although it might seem early, a successful event requires a lot of work months in advance so we are busy preparing for our 2019 Annual Parade of Trees NOW.

For the past 9 years, the Lynn Valley Community Association has worked to bring people, families, businesses and schools, places of worship, associations and organizations together at the LVCA 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 and/or organization, and at the same time, support families in need and help to build a stronger community here in Lynn Valley.

Past sponsors of this event understand the value of participating. We would love to include you in the festivities and have you become a tree sponsor in 2019. Why? $50 from each sponsored tree will be donated to North Shore Disability Resource Centre’s Mobile Multi Sensory therapeutic van; the first in Canada; with remaining net proceeds going to support the continuing work of LVCA; such as the Speaker Series, trail improvement projects and community events. It’s all about community!

LINK TO ONLINE REGISTRATION FORM

Back again 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. 

Tree decorating is Friday, November 29th or Saturday, November 30th with the Grand Lighting Ceremony on December 1st

Thank you! We truly appreciate your support and community spirit! If you require more information, email info@lvca.ca

LV LINK Route

Lynn Valley LINK Trail

The Lynn Valley LINK

The Lynn Valley LINK is to showcase the depth and breadth of existing trails and provide an overview of the trail network in Lynn Valley by focusing on the connections around and through the community.

The LINK will connect existing circumference trails in Lynn Valley such as the Baden Powell and Power Line Trails, and will feature alternative routes from these trails to bring both residents and visitors to the restaurants and commercial centre.

The Lynn Valley LINK Committee, composed of DNV Parks staff and LVCA members, wants to update the trail’s supporters and the Lynn Valley public with the progress to date on the previously named Lynn Valley Loop Trail.  The LINK was approved by DNV Council in 2016 and work has been progressing steadily since to make the LINK a reality.

The project has been divided into two phases:

2017 – Phase 1:  Connecting Perimeter Trails around Lynn Valley.

2018 – Phase 2:  Connecting Trails through Lynn Valley.

The Phase 1 Perimeter Trail is mostly in place.  The only outstanding area to be finalized is in the northwest area where the LV LINK comes off the Baden Powell Trail and then joins up with the Power Line Trail.  A suitable route is being determined that will not conflict with the heavy mountain bike use and trails in the northwest area.

Kiosk signage at five main staging and parking areas have been designed by the DNV and the LVCA is providing historical content that will reflect some of the history of the various areas of Lynn Valley.  Suitable photos are being selected from the North Vancouver Archives.

Trail signage will feature the LINK logo and is easily consistent and distinguishable from other trail signage.  Current trail signage will remain.  Parks employees expect to have the LINK perimeter trail signage in place by the end of summer 2017.

While the current budget will get the project started, the committee is also working on fundraising for the Lynn Valley LINK.

On May 13, 2017 the annual Lynn Valley Park Project will focus on the Power Line section (near Mountain Highway) of the LINK that needs restoration.
