There's a saying that "Transition is not a spectator sport". It's true! Village Vancouver runs on people power, and engaging in activities and projects together helps us accomplish more.

Hey David,

We are attempting to start a Village group in Burnaby, and are looking for all Burnaby folks to join us in our initial meet & greet.

We have set the meeting for Wednesday December 14th from 7pm - 9pm at the Bonsor Recreation Centre (6550 Bonsor Avenue) in Multipurpose Room 2.

The event will be a potluck, and if you can bring a small bite to share with the group it would be amazing.

I sincerely hope you can attend, and if not, please keep an eye on the Burnaby page as we will try to meet monthly from here on in.

Look forward to speaking with you soon!
