Blueridge Bulletin – April 2015

So much is happening this month! Starting with Easter…

1) Funicular railway to connect Riverside with Berkley – eliminating stairs.

2) An ID card was found at the bus stop at Sechelt/Hyannis. Contact info [at] blueridgeca [dot] org to claim.

3) Do you have small children and wish to get them even more active and hyper than they already are? Well, you’re in luck as there are two different Easter Egg hunts in/around Blueridge this weekend.

4) Blueridge Sharing Garden Work Party and Wishlist – Saturday April 18th at the Lytton Street road allowance (where Lytton and Carnation streets intersect). All are welcome to come out and get this garden (party) started! Bring your kids and put them to work digging in the dirt.

5) Do you need Food Safe Certification? Mt Seymour United Church is holding a course on Saturday April 25th from 9 am – 4 pm. Cost is $65. Register by phone 604-929-1336 or email: mtsuc [at] telus [dot] net

6) Blueridge Good Neighbour Day Sunday June 7th – we are looking for person(s) interested in creating a promotional video of the 2015 event. Are you a budding videographer (or cinematographer)? Let us know – bgnd [at] blueridgeca [dot] org. For BGND updates – follow us on Twitter @blueridgeca #BGND2015

7) International Bear Day – Saturday April 4th at Cap U.

8) The next Blueridge Community Association meeting will be our AGM, on Tuesday May 12th at 7:00 pm in the library of Blueridge Elementary School. The guest speaker will be Susan Ware, C.H.T (certified horticulture technologist with GardenWorks) and she will be speaking about eradicating the Chafer Beetle (which has just begun invading lawns in Blueridge).

9) Growth survey – we want to know what you think about growth and density in the DNV. Take a moment to fill out our survey.

10) At the March 27th BCA meeting, we hosted Mayor Richard Walton in a lively discussion about the TransLink plebiscite. Video footage of the meeting will be available shortly if you missed out. An idea for a unified bus route “east of the Seymour” was also proposed. The 211, 212 and 214 bus routes would be combined into a superior 213 route. Find out more here.

11) Kiwanis Care Centre (2444 Burr Place) is a 192 bed residential care facility located very close to Blueridge/Seymour Heights (just across the Parkway at Browning). They are looking for volunteers to help out in the facility. Please fill out a volunteer application form if interested.
