The Kids/Social committee is once again hosting a Christmas party! C’mon down, meet your neighbours, and share some holiday cheer.
We’ll have crafts for the kids, and treats for the grownups.
Please bring a snack to share!
Starts at 3 pm on Saturday, December 16.
See you there!
I think we can only categorize this one as “too successful!”
We made a dozen batches of sugar cookies, and everyone got to take some home!
After what was one of the rainiest Novembers on record, it looks like we’ll be given a bit of a break to enjoy some decent weather.
Here are some fun things to do around the city:
Or maybe go check out some Christmas Lights? or wander around the Vancouver Christmas Market? Christmas at Canada Place is right next door.
And don’t forget to join us December 16 for the Co-op Christmas Social!
A few months back, courtesy of a grant we got from Neighbourhood Small Grants, we started a monthly community kitchen.
The idea was to get together once a month and create a healthy meal that we could all then take home to our families.
We have had two meetings so far. At the first, we had four families, and we made chili, cornbread and cookies for dessert. At the second, we made about 300 perogies, and 6 families participated.
Our next meeting will focus on Christmas Cookies. We’ll be making lots and lots and LOTS of Christmas cookies, and you can take them home both raw and baked. It will take place on December 2 between 2 and 4 pm. If you want to attend, please sign up here, so we know how much ingredients to buy.
Everyone welcome, no cost.
We recently lost one of our friends and neighbours (from the PAL), Sean Allan. We’re all going to miss seeing him at the July 1 Pancake Breakfasts and having coffee at Breaking Bean.
If you would like to attend Sean’s Celebration of Life, it will take place at 2:00pm on Thursday, November 30th at Unity of Vancouver (located at 5840 Oak Street).
Saturday, November 25 is the 6th annual free outdoor festival in Yaletown. It’s a lot of fun to attend! Noon to 7 pm–check it out.

Hallowe’en is always a fun time around the Co-op. From the spooky 7th floor to the haunted courtyard, there’s always lots of excitement.
Here are some highlights from the Co-Op Hallowe’en party on October 27:
Special thanks to the Kid’s Committee for organizing, and to the Board for your support!
