Subject:Volunteering for Vancouver Pride!

 Hey everyone!

I just wanted to let you all know that It's not too late to sign up to volunteer for Vancouver Pride 2009; we are still accepting volunteers for a few events, including the Pride Parade and Festival, August 2nd. I wanted to make sure the word gets out to everyone in the community, so that no one misses the chance to be a part of this. 

Sign up sooner than later to get the shifts you want; last year we filled up fast and we anticipate the same to happen for this year. Just this week we implemented a new system where you sign up, get your very own login, and then from there you can sign up for the exact events, shifts, and positions you want... immediately! Absolutely no waiting to be scheduled. You can then view your shifts online any time, instead of waiting for an email. 

You can either go to www.vancouverpride.ca and look for the volunteer page, or take this shortcut: 


Just click on "I would like to volunteer for this organization" and take it from there!

Remember, ANYONE can volunteer. You don't have to be GLBTQ, etc, etc. I get that question a lot  =)

Subject:BC Cancer Foundation Volunteer Shuttle to Washington June 21st.

For those of you who were interested in volunteering for BC Cancer Foundation's Ride to Conquer Cancer but were unable to be crew or were unable to get transportation to Washington State, we are really happy to have arranged to get a volunteer shuttle for Sunday June 21st that will leave from Downtown Vancouver, drive to the campsite in Mount Vernon in the morning, to Seattle in the afternoon, and then back to Downtown Vancouver in the evening. This means that if you live in Vancouver, have a passport, and want to put a very full volunteer day in on Sunday the 21st, you are now able to do so without worrying about transportation.

Details behind the cut for anyone who is interested!

Subject:Last Chance to Volunteer for The Ride to Conquer Cancer

The detailed version is much longer and behind the cut, but I will sum it up in brief. If you are interested, you can read the further details behind the cut. Important point: you don't need to cycle or have a bike to volunteer! Only participants will be biking.

On June 20th to 21st, cyclists will be participating in The Ride to Conquer Cancer which is a bike ride from Vancouver BC to Seattle WA. Full proceeds of the event will go to support BC Cancer Foundation, Canary Foundation (WA) and The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centre (WA). We need volunteers in a few locations:

Saturday Morning June 20th at Guildford Mall in Surrey (Canada) from 4am to noon.
Saturday Morning June 20th at Edgewater Park in Mount Vernon (USA) setting up tents from 8am to 2pm.
Sunday Morning June 21st at Edgewater Park in in Mount Vernon (USA) taking down tents from 9am to 2pm
Sunday Morning and Afternoon at the University of Washington (USA) June 21st in Seattle
(Note: Volunteers MUST provide their own transportation to the above opportunities)

We have a shuttle from Vancouver to Seattle for those volunteers that want to put in a full day on Sunday the 21st.

Subject:Be Apart of a Funky Mock Demonstration to Promote The Underwear Affair!!!

On April 29th 2009, we will be holding a funky and exciting Mock Demonstration in downtown Vancouver to promote BC Cancer Foundation's Underwear Affair.

Imagine this: 50 to 100 people of all ages, dressed in lab coats, scrubs, underwear, feather boas, silly wigs, fishnets, poofy skirts, and other crazy outfits, protesting cancers below the waist! Letting the world know... we won't take it anymore... no more cancers below the waist!

The Underwear Affair is a fun 10K run or 5K walk that benefits often underfunded cancers like prostate, colorectal and cervical. It’s time to do something bold and help support BC Cancer Foundation’s effort to find cures and better treatments for these cancers. It is one of those rare events that combine a really great cause and a really good time. It’s for people of all ages, all athletic abilities, and all fashion statements. Of course, participating in your underwear is encouraged, but not required.

For this promotional event we want to make a loud splash! The more people we expose this event to, the more registrations we will get, and the more money will go to the BC Cancer Foundation.

We are looking for:

- 50 to 100 people... one of which could be you, your friends, your family!
- These people should wear the craziest outfits you can imagine... wigs, scrubs, labcoats, feather boas, booty shorts, fishnets, underwear of any kind (try to keep it clean though, this is an all ages event), jumpsuits, leotards, etc, etc. How crazy can you get!?
- This event will take place in downtown Vancouver in a very public space (location to be announced very, very soon -- think the library or the art gallery)

We will provide the protest signs.

The event will occur on April 29th.

Everyone will meet at the BC Cancer Foundation Special Events Office at 11am (#303 - 698 Seymour Street). We will be done by 1:30pm.

Please note: this is a media launch, so you will likely get your picture in the paper or on tv. Dress accordingly =)

YOU MUST contact Monika, the Volunteer Coordinator, in order to participate. Please RSVP by April 20th, 2009, in order to ensure that you are signed up to participate. Remember, volunteers can be any age!

For more information or to sign up, please contact Monika at mwhitney@endcancer.ca. You can also visit our website at www.uncoverthecure.org

Subject:the great orbax in vancity!

Wed. May 16th @ Red Room

The Great Orbax Sideshow is an incredible comedy stunt show featuring jaw dropping feats and hilarious antics presented in a modern day vaudevillian atmosphere!

Drawing equal influences from the travelling carnivals of the 1930's, vaudeville, horror movies and saturday morning cartoons, the Great Orbax Sideshow is a one of a kind roller coaster of shock value entertainment!

You may leave in awe, or leave in disgust, but we guarantee that you'll leave laughing!

Yipes, sorry this is so last-minute, but my friend told me this a few minutes ago.

Yard sale happening in Langley/Aldergrove tomorrow morning (July 8th) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

He's in the process of moving permanently overseas, so there's a lot of stuff he has to get rid of.

24455 50th Avenue, Langley (north from the Otter Co-Op at 248th and Fraser Highway, turn left at 50th Avenue, past the "NO EXIT" sign. The house is on the right, directly across from a tree farm.)

Thanks, everyone.

Seeing as how small this community is, I'm wondering if anyone would be up to getting a quiet gathering together or something.

My husband and I moved back to the general area in December. We lived in Richmond for four years, and after realizing how much we hated the traffic and the constant airplanes (Langley Airport has nothing on YVR) we decided to come back (I'm a native Cloverdaleite).

I live near Brookswood but am mobile. storyofherlife and her boyfriend storyofhislife are friends of mine and live near LMH. If anyone is interested, leave a comment with ideas and stuff. :-)

Well, it seems like this community is so deserted that even the maintainer left...

Hopefully you guys can help out...I'm looking for a few good restaurants thatI should check out in Langley. I'm getting bored of the same old ones out there.

So what are some good restaurants (aside from the same old red robin, milestones, olive garden, etc)

good breakfast.
Good sushi (incl. all you can eat).
and anything else you can give me.

Mood: blah

This journal is pretty deserted, but I figured I'd try a question that I posted in the Aldergrove group:

Is there anywhere in either Langley or Aldergrove that has karaoke on Saturday night? Friday night?

Subject:Pet Grooming

Hey guys,

I've googled this, but the only site that has reviews is more directed towards pet boarding, which isn't what I need.

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a dog grooming place?

We used to take our dog to the Petsmart on the bypass, but the last time she got an awful ear infection because her ears weren't dried properly, and the time before the cut wasn't good enough and grew back really quickly.

It's for Bonnie, my shetland sheepdog, so specialization in long-haired medium sized dogs would be preferrable but not necessary. Also, reasonably priced would me a major bonus.

Thank you so much for your help!

Subject:missing cat!

I know this is a long shot.

My cat has been staying with my in-laws out in Aldergrove. I was informed yesterday that she has now not been seen for almost a MONTH!

We just got into a place where we can have her back with us, and now she is missing.

Her name is Sushi, she is about 5 or 6 years old. She does have a tatto in her ear, but when i called the SPCA hospital where she has had all of her procedures done, they don’t have it on record!!!!

Reward Offered! No questions asked.

I have contacted Langley Animal Services, The Abbotsford Pound, All the local vets, and i am heading out there this weekend to post missing posters.

Please Help me bring my Dear kitty home!

any info, call 778-241-3505
