We had a wonderful early Canada Day celebration on June 29!

With festive decorations up, fun games and activities on the tables, delicious food flowing in, and the sun shining brightly, we were ready to celebrate Canada with our WSFP community!

THANK YOU to all who came with tasty savoury and sweet treats for us to enjoy, to our awesome volunteers: Jennifer, Sherri, Sarah and Bill for helping out with the day, and to Joyce Murray, MP for visiting, leading our “Oh, Canada Parade”, and sharing in our celebration!  We also wish to THANK Safeway English Bay – Bakery on Davie Street for generously donating a special cake complete with the Canada 150 design on it!  We had over 150+ guests enjoying the fun- and food-filled morning!  It was a great morning to kick off a good long weekend of celebrations!

With Many Thanks!

We wish to say a huge THANK YOU to the wonderful folks of Edelman Vancouver during their Little Give initiative earlier this month!

On June 2 and 3, a group of 14 individuals worked enthusiastically and eagerly and helped cleaned and freshened up our living room, dining room, and our yard!  They also built us a lovely raised garden bed which we are excited to harvest from and use continuously!

We would also like to THANK 505-Junk for taking a huge load of all of our well used toys and other waste accumulated from the clean-up days!

All of us at West Side Family Place, the children and their families greatly appreciate having a cleaner house and yard to play into!
