April Events in Vancity

The days are getting longer, and we are starting to see warmer days and cherry blossoms, but April looks to be pretty rainy….

Here’s what’s happening in the city this month:


Movie Night April 7

The Kids/Social Committee will be hosting a movie night on Saturday, April 7. We’ll have two movie showings, one for the younger kids, and one for the older kids. We’ll have a variety of movies on hand, and will choose one based on popularity in the moment.

We’ll also have juice and popcorn.

C’mon down! Bring a blanket and a pillow and hang out!

Spring Break Fun, March 2018

The kids will be out of school as of this weekend for 2+ weeks of vacation. If you don’t have any trips planned, there are lots of fun things to do around the city.

C’mon Spring!

We’ve seen a few blossoms peeking out here and there… let’s hope this is the end of the snow, and the beginning of the flowers!

Lots of spring-related fun to be had this month in Vancouver. There’s Pi Day, St. Patrick’s Day, spring break for the kids, and hopefully lots of Cherry Blossoms!

Here’s a closer look at what’s happening this month:
