Whether you get excited each year for Valentine's Day, or would rather just ignore it completely, it’s important that a day is earmarked for us to officially celebrate love. And not just romantic love; but the universal, enduring, spirit-lifting love that is the glue across all of our relationships. Call it spirit, call it tenderness, call it compassion – whatever you want to call it, we all have it. It’s just a matter of how we choose to use it. Happy Valentines Day!
Hello Alex House Community: Please share your passions and interests with the City of Surrey to support the development of the 1st Ever Community Summit: 'Connecting People & Neighbourhoods'. This is a simple and quick evaluation where you can choose your top 5 topics of interest for building community.
We're hoping to establish a Free Little Library at Camp Alexandra, building on an international initiative of small libraries popping up on street corners, in phone booths (if you can still find one!) and in all kinds of unexpected places, offering unlimited community access to collections of books. If you’d like to help get a Free Little Library off the ground, contact us at communityprograms@alexho
Children aren’t the only ones who love to be read to! Enjoy an informal evening of familiar and favourite poetry and prose for unaccompanied adults and families with children ages 6 and up on Wednesday, March 6, 7 to 8:30 pm in the Dining Hall (upstairs) at Camp Alexandra. Register at 604-535-0015.
Join us Wednesday, February 6th at noon for a Valentines Day Lunch. The menu is scrumptious: Pork Roast Stuffed with Prunes, Steamed Carrots, Roasted Baby Potatoes, Dijon Mustard Sauce, Valentine Cupcakes, Tea and Coffee. And we'll have a guest speaker from the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
