February Community Newsletter

HELLO FEBRUARY, LOVE MUCH, LIVE WELL.

FEBRUARY 2017

Welcome to a winter wonderland at River District Vancouver. Although our Canadian groundhogs, Wiarton Willie and Shubenacadie Sam predicted an early Spring, Mother Nature is still full of surprises. It’s February and we’re going to celebrate with a fun-filled Valentine’s kids craft session and cupcakes for Ladies Night. Say hello to our newest River District Vancouver friends, Kristy who joins River District Vancouver as our new yoga instructor and Wesley, TD’s new Branch Manager. Have your say at the Parks Board Open House on People, Parks & Dogs and we’re already calling for vendors for the River District Farmers Market.
