Notice of 2019/20 & 2020/2021 Annual General Meetings

Please join us for TWO Annual General Meetings on Thursday November 4th at 7pm via Zoom.

Our 2019/20 AGM was postponed due to COVID and the recommendations of the Vancouver Health Authority.  We had hoped to meet in person however that was put on hold with subsequent ‘waves’ and our concern for the safety of our members and community.

While are disappointed not to be able to meet in person., the LVCA Board agreed that the online option is currently the safest for all our members.

The 2019/20 AGM will take place on Thursday November 4th at 7pm, via Zoom. 

Following the adjournment of this AGM, we will hold the 2020/21 AGM.

Please email lynnvalleyca@gmail.com if you wish to attend and a link will be sent to you shortly before the meeting.

It’s coming up! The Lynn Valley Community Association 2021 Parade of Trees!

Well, the pandemic made things challenging last year, but with help of volunteers, some creative thinking and the support from our community, we were able to install eighty (yes, 80!) decorated Christmas trees for the 10th Annual Parade of Trees in December 2020. 

Lynn Valley Village was once again transformed into an illuminated forest of beautifully decorated trees and for the first time, we expanded onto the new plaza in front of Starbucks at Lynn Valley Centre where decorated trees added that touch of Christmas spirit.

We are very grateful to all the businesses, clubs, churches, organizations, families, individuals and schools who continue to support this event and bring a little magic to our community each year. 

VOLUNTEERS!

We’re looking for members in our community who have an hour or two to give in helping setup and take down. If this is you, or you’d like more information, contact us at info@lvca.ca with the subject line “Tree Volunteer”

Making a Difference Campaign

During the month of January of this year, LVCA learned that there was an urgent need for warm clothes and blankets for people who were experiencing homelessness in Lynn Valley and we asked for your help.  

The response was amazing!

You donated hundreds of bags and boxes of gloves, hats, socks, coats and blankets!  Your donations helped not just those in our immediate neighbourhood, but people in need everywhere on the North Shore. 

Unfortunately, there are people that still need our help.

LVCA will be launching a second “Make a Difference” campaign in January 2022 and we will be working with The Lookout Housing and Health Society to determine how we can assist. 

Stay tuned for details!.

LVCA Park Project – cancelled

On April 25th, the Lynn Valley Community Association and Lynn Valley Seniors Association were planning to work together on the 2020 Lynn Valley Park Project.

With the recommendation of physical distancing and for the safety of all involved, we have had to cancel the yearly event.

But keep it in mind! We’re planning to be back next spring and we’d like you to join us! Below is a description of what happens at our Park Projects….

“The work will be basic gardening, removing invasive plants, planting natural vegetation, laying down mulch, cleaning litter and anything else that needs to be done with the support of the DNV Parks Department.
We have work for every level of physical ability so all ages and stages are welcome. Dress for the weather, as this is a rain-or-shine event! Sturdy boots or shoes, working clothes and gloves are recommended, as it could be muddy! if we are blessed with sunshine, remember the hats and sunscreen. Look for our LVCA tent to check in. *You will need to bring your own water bottle.”
