Easter Egg Hunt 2013

Shelley and her team of volunteers made more than 300 kids and their companions very happy. The event was extremely well planned to the smallest detail and wonderfully executed. Never did the Whonnock Community Association welcome so many people at the yearly event. Sunshine and 20 degrees made it probably one of the warmest events in more than 30 years.

Thornhill Square Dance

Betty as the witch of the west
The square-dance at Thornhill Hall on Saturday was a roaring success--between 55 and 60 people attending! Three lessons learned: (1) You are allowed to make errors; (2) You are allowed to laugh;  (3) Don't trust the caller!! There were many mistakes made and even more laughter. The caller did a marvellous job straightening out a confused but happy lot. Click here to see some pictures of the party.

One Book Whonnock

On February 28th, twenty-seven people waded through the rains to meet their neighbours at Whonnock Lake Centre and talk about this year's "One Book Whonnock" book – a murder mystery in the sunny Riviera, The Corpse with the Silver Tongue.  It was a lively evening with the presence of the author, Cathy Ace herself a neighbourhood resident. On the photo Jean Davidson, the heart and soul of One Book Whonnock (left) and Cathy Ace with some of the participants in the background discussing the book. Click on photo to enlarge.
