Have you noticed Lynn Valley’s new Street Banners?

You may have spotted some beautiful new street banners in and around our Town Centre.

LVCA spearheaded the project to replace the old faded and torn banners that had seen better days.  Three local artists Vicki English, Dana Irving and Duane Murrin were invited to submit their designs for consideration in the creation of the new banners.  

Choosing a design was tough, but after much consideration and deliberation, the LVCA Board chose long time Lynn Valley resident Duane Murrin’s submission. His bold and colourful designs stand out on even the greyest of days and remind us how lucky we are to be living in Lynn Valley: a stunning “Gateway to Nature”.

We are grateful to the District of North Vancouver who provided funding for the new banners through a Community Building Grant.

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”
