The Vancouver Voice - Issue #3 --
April 05, 2007
WELCOME TO THE APRIL 2007 ISSUE #3 OF 'THE VANCOUVER VOICE'! We hope to keep you updated with current news in and around beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. Check out our issue "spring has sprung and we are ready for some fun!"
The clouds are beginning to break and the rain is becoming less frequent. It is sunny at 8am these days and it always makes people smile more, cheery and people tend to make the effort to be more social and say hi to one another on the streets. Ahhhh, life is good and it's time for some fun in Vancouver. Time to dust off winter's effects and jump into spring. Let's get started with the newest upcoming events!
April is a very important month for Vancouver!!! It is the first month in the New Year where there is a statutory holiday. It is the start of the Vancouver Canucks playoffs. It is also where everyone does some spring cleaning, gets out all there spring clothes and hits the gym or the seawall.
An Easter egg hunt is very exciting for the kiddies and for some grown ups too ;-) Myself included! It is time to get out and celebrate spring. Work can be done and then it is playtime for all! Vancouver is a play land in itself and provides numerous activities for all types such as singles, couples, sports fans and adventurers as well as families.
Hockey is loved by Vancouverites and visitors alike. It isn't just a spectator sport for some residents in Vancouver; it is a way of life! A natural part of existence :-) The beloved Vancouver Canucks have a dedicated following in the city and their arena, GM Place, is packed for every game the team plays at home so consider yourself lucky if you can find tickets. Check out more about the Canucks here.
It is time to take a break from slaving at work and do something you enjoy and that is quite therapeutic as well some say. Spring is here and it is time to get your tees out and dust off the old golf clubs. Vancouver has some fabulous golf course where you can practice and become a pro yet again!
Bring your friends, bring your family, bring yourself and get ready for the time of your life. April 13th-22nd, 2007. I went last year and believe me, take your sunglasses and lotion! The day I went was HOT and i ended up looking like a tomato! You have been warned, granted it is not raining or something! Noooooooo, it is not allowed ;-)
Visit: Telus World Festival for more information on the event.
Easter is a great time of year where families and friends get together to celebrate whether it be religious or family time. It truly brings people together and one thing I always find that is such an amazing thing to do is...to open your heart to others that don’t have anyone to share Easter lunch or dinner with.
I use to go to an international university where all of my friends could not fly home for holidays like Thanksgiving, Easter and Christmas so our door was always open and full of festivities! The heart is an amazing gift we all have been given, so let's share! So let's get on with the activities for Easter!
Listed below we have some fabulous suggestions for you and your family or friends. We all are young at heart so decorating an egg again might be fun!!
