West Point Grey Community Association
President’s Message
I can’t believe Winter is here and the holidays are just around the corner! We have had such a
successful Fall season. There was a great turnout for our free week of programming in September
to celebrate our 40th anniversary of West Point Grey as a Community Centre. It was great seeing
new faces and families in the Centre!
This Winter, we have a lot of new programs for families including Dance Extreme for Girls, Yoga
for Kids, Little Ballerinas and even a Family Dance Battle! Also remember to sign up for our Spring
Break Day Camps for Preschoolers and Children aged 3 to 12 years old. Not to leave the parents
out, we also have some new adult programs including Burlesque, Dance Boot Camp, Postnatal
workouts, Drawing classes and the annual Sun Run clinic.
As always, we have plenty of Special Events scheduled including our classic Breakfast with Bunny, Family Day and
Wine and Paint nights for the adults. These provide opportunities to meet your neighbors, make new friends or simply
mix up your family time. Remember to get your tickets early because we usually sell out!
In September, we said goodbye to our amazing Recreation Supervisor, Margaret Watts, as she retired. Margaret gave
110% to the job and was instrumental in making countless positive changes at the West Point Grey Community Centre
including increased accessibility, signage, diversity, special events, the arts and culture and upgrades to our facilities.
Most importantly though, Margaret was an absolutely treasure to work with and we will miss her dearly.
I would also like to give a warm welcome to Nicolle Koeppel who is joining our team as the new youth leader. Nicole
will be responsible for overseeing the Youth Council, the Friday night program, youth volunteers and developing
connections with the local schools.
Thank you to the Board members, staff and volunteers for the amazing Fall season. A special thank you to all the
resilient staff who went above and beyond to provide day camps for the kids (and parents!) during the strike.
Cheers,
Christine Nelson - President, WPGCA

Lands Company.
“Canada Lands Company is very
pleased to be able to work in the
City of Vancouver, in the community
of West Point Grey on its Jericho
Lands. This property represents an
exciting opportunity to integrate this
important site into the community
in way that wasn’t possible before.
This is long-term endeavour that will
span many years. The foundation
of Canada Lands’ work is its
consultation process. The company
actively seeks out outreach initiatives
in communities in which it works in
order to understand local aspirations
and municipal requirements. This
consultation process informs any
future development plans. There is
no question that the community plays
a key role in shaping Canada Lands’
plans. I will discuss this process and
answer questions”.

PRIVATE LIVES
by Noël Coward
Director: Kevin Bennett
Elyot and Amanda: divorced five years ago, both happily remarried and on their respective honeymoons in
France. Life is bliss. However as chance would have
it they are both honeymooning at the same hotel in
France, and in adjacent rooms! When the two couples
meet the atmosphere begins to crackle. Coward at his
best... sparklingly witty and deliciously wicked.

Thebes: an impoverished population, a shattered infrastructure, a volatile army - and ruled by a woman, the firs

the aid of Theseus, the leader of a vastly wealthy state, she
doesn’t stand a chance. A passionate exploration of a clash
between the world’s richest and the world’s poorest countries in the aftermath of a brutal war.

Participants are introduced to the behavioral/social

Citizen is a dog that is a pleasure to own, safe around
children and one that you would welcome as a neighbour.
Create canine companions that are as equally well
behaved in public as they are at home. A dog that can
confidently wait at a location, come when called, greet a
friendly person or another dog, be accepting of grooming
or handling, sit and down on command and walk on
a loose leash. Classes will discuss the use of petting,
play and food (as reward) in achieving these objectives.

Yin Yoga targets the deeper tissues of the body. There
are perhaps only 5-7 poses in a Yin class - that are held
for longer periods of time (2-5 min). Breathing into
the ligaments, tendons, and less elastic tissues takes
an actively relaxed focus that works to help you open,
lengthen, breathe into those tissues that may have some
issues. There is no pain; mild discomfort is OK - but NO
pain. This is time for you to experience and really feel from

If you are practicing any other kind of yoga, you are practicing
Yang Yoga - and that is only half the equation. Yin Yoga targets
the deeper tissues of the body. There are perhaps only 5-7
poses in a Yin class - that are held for longer periods of time
(2-5 min). Breathing into the ligaments, tendons, and less
elastic tissues takes an actively relaxed focus that works to
help you open, lengthen, breathe into those tissues that may
have some issues. This is time for you to experience and
really feel from the inside out. Drop in $15 if space permits.
