Outreach workers at the North Shore Lookout Society use coffee cards to encourage people without homes to make social connections, access vital health and well being services.
Last year when LVCA shared that there were people experiencing homelessness in our community, you showed incredible generosity and community spirit by donating hundreds of bags of blankets, coats, warm socks, hats and gloves. The Shelter nearly ran out of storage space! It was awesome!
We are so excited to tell you that we’ve done it again and SOLD OUT of our available trees for this year!
And we couldn’t have done it without your sponsorship. With everything still in a cautionary holding pattern right now including our Lighting Ceremony, (maybe next year!) 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.
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.
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.
