Greetings to all members of East Van Housing Co-op.
Below are details of a social event being planned by the Social Committee.
Event: Music Circle
Date and Time: Friday, March 29 6:15 – 8:15
Place: Britannia Family Room, to the left before you enter the library, in the elementary school.
What to bring: your own self, all ages and musical abilities welcome. Bring a potluck snack or not, bring a musical instrument or not.
Format: This event is meant for making music together. We sit in a circle and go around taking turns choosing the song to be sung.
Options: Play an instrument and lead the song, Suggest a song and hope that someone else will lead it (usually my option), bring some lyrics and/or reason for choosing this song, and then either lead it or hope that someone else will lead it. You can also totally pass.There are probably some other options.
Depending on how many people are in the circle, we might get around to you 2 or 3 times (more or less).
Which reminds me, we would like to have a rough rsvp from you and also please spread the word verbally to fellow members.

Once again, Pender-Ferndale had the strongest showing at a Co-op event, with Al, Esme, Nola, Mary W. and Nina representing their site. Jen from Vic-Nape, Mary S. from Salsbury and Teresa from Venables rounded out the game-players for the day. Jen and Al laid out a terrific spread of snacks, which helped everyone keep going between rounds. The group warmed up with a round of Crazy 8s and then the main event began. Mary W. and Nina had brought one of their new favourite games, Telestrations, and the rest of the afternoon was spent drawing and guessing and drawing again.
There’s sure to be another games day, so be prepared for games of all kinds – co-operative, competitive, performative, and creative!
Thanks to Al and Jen for organizing this fun Sunday afternoon event and thanks to everyone who joined in or stopped by to say hello.
The Education Committee will be hosting a Games Day at the co-op office beginning at 1pm on Sunday, February 25th.
We will have Pictionary and Pandemic on hand. My kids will bring some card games as well.
If you like you can bring a snack to share.
We should wrap up around 3pm.
We hope you join in.
If you would like to RSVP to me at this address to give us an idea of how many members are coming that would be great but if you decide at the last minute to join us you are more than welcome.
