June 2018 Community Newsletter

June is the gateway to summer

June 2018

Summer is in full swing here at River District, and just in time as the residents of One Town Centre and the Fraser Flats East Building move in! A huge welcome is in order to the newest members of our community – if you see a new face, make sure to say hello.

Last month, the City of Vancouver held an Open House at the River District Neighbourhood Centre. It was a great turnout, with over 150 residents attending. During the Open House, we saw concepts for River District’s public spaces and community amenities and Translink officials shared potential transit updates. Thank you to those who attended, and stay tuned for details on the next Open House this fall.

Starting this June we are holding a monthly Wine Wednesday at Everything Wine. The first monthly tasting session is actually a Whiskey Wednesday on June 13th and it is an Introduction to Whiskey to celebrate Father’s Day – though of course, everyone over the age of 19 is welcome to attend.

For those of us wanting to spend more time outdoors and get some exercise, Alicia from Fit U Fitness is starting an informal walking group on Wednesday evenings beginning at 7:00pm meeting in front of the Neighbourhood Centre.

Let’s get outside and enjoy summer #downbytheriver.
