Remembering Flanders Fields

Category: Heritage & Culture

November 11th marks a special day for Canadians all around the world, Remembrance Day. We all wear our poppies and support our active military and veterans on this day. Remembrance became much more significant throughout the years because of one very special trip to Flanders Fields, I took with my parents when I was 16.

Halloween Events & Traditions

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Agritourism, Heritage & Culture, Wine & Food

Halloween is a time to dress up as your favourite character. Costumes range from a Disney Princess, Superhero to a Minion. It is also a time to get scared out of your skin from the haunted houses you go to or scary movies you watch! As I little girl, I always loved dressing up. For a couple years in a row, I was a black cat. Why two years in a row as a black cat? I just loved being a black cat so why not wear it as many Halloween’s as possible!

Greater Vancouver Zoo

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Heritage & Culture

A whole lot can change in 45 years. As the Greater Vancouver Zoo dusts off after their 45th anniversary celebrations this summer, it’s pretty clear just how true that is. When the zoo first opened in 1970 it was a game farm with lots of animals and small enclosures. Today, the zoo’s philosophy has done a 180 and the focus is on large enclosures for animals that are either captive-bred, rescued or former pets—and their needs come first.

Chilling tales from beyond the Grave

Categories: Activities & Recreation, Heritage & Culture

As a young girl, I was always curious about ghost stories. I use to read the Scary Stories to tell in the Dark collected from folklore by Alvin Schwartz, which at the time I thought were super scary. I always wondered if some of the tales were true. Fast forward 15 years, and I got the chance to experience some ghost stories right here in our backyard.

Okay, who’s excited for Thanksgiving? The golden-brown turkey, bursting with the perfect mix of stuffing, plus all the fixin’s – cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy, oh the gravy! Wipe the drool off your chin for a moment and consider this – what if turkey dinner didn’t have to be a once or twice a year kind of thing? What if you could eat turkey every day?

Shakespeare in a Vineyard

Category: Heritage & Culture

Who doesn’t enjoy wine, a picnic and a Shakespeare play?  I don’t think many people would say no to the chance to experience all of these things in our backyard. Last Saturday, I had the privilege of seeing Bard in the Valley’s Love’s Labour’s Lost. With the backdrop of Township 7 winery, it was a beautiful setting for a great evening.
