Alex House was nominated recently for a Surrey Board of Trade Business Excellence Award in the non-profit, budget over $500,000 category. I guess we didn’t cross our fingers hard enough because we didn't win, but it was an honor to have been selected as a finalist and it was a real pleasure to attend the awards event. Maybe next year .....

If you haven’t stopped by the office lately, take a detour when you’re walking the beach and come in and see the completed Community Art Project. Our caretaker, Lisa Lucow, took on the project as part of a school assignment, and she, with the volunteers who turned out to lend their talents, ideas and skills, produced a colourful, interesting, detailed work of art. It encapsulates the heart of a neighbourhood house in a visual, fun statement, Drop in and have a look!
