I was once asked, “where is the best place to go for fun on the North Shore”? The answer was easy. “The West Van Seniors Centre”, I said without even having to think twice. There’s just something special about this place that always feels good every time you go there. Whether it’s a fancy occasion dance with live music, working out with the Fit Fellas, stopping by the woodworking shop or just dropping in for lunch, this place is always happening. Clearly, it is their people that make all the magic and never was this more true than for the fabulous group of volunteers that give their time and energy to all kinds of activities. Last week, at a special private reception, the centre paid tribute to their volunteers with an afternoon of live music, food, fun and more. Congrats to everyone and keep up the good work.
