As a non-profit dancing group, we focus on the health and happiness of our neighbors. Our project can help people meet new friends and get good relationships with their neighbors. Also they will
learn dancing skills and be healthy and happy. We also organize some parties after dancing class. Organize them to
perform dancing in the public. Such as Langley senior house in Christmas, Chinese new year celebration party , Surrey
Fusion Festival in summer.. All neighbors are very proud to contribute for our community.

On a recent sunny morning, the Salt Spring library’s program room was filled with conversation, laughter and the occasional squeal from a happy baby. Groups of women were gathered around several wooden coat stands and ladders, busily knotting macramé plant hangers as they chatted.

As I think about different issues that we are facing today, there is no better time to exercise being a citizen and being a resident of your community. There is one powerful thing that we can do, VOTE.
 
Last year, we had municipal elections all over the province. As the election date approached, many of the candidates began popping up on my social media feed explaining their platform.

Between the tail end of 2017, and the rest of 2018, there wasn't much of a break between cold and flu seasons. I work in food, and also in health, and noticed that people in Vancouver were continually sick!

This is an expensive city to live in, and most of us can't afford to miss several days of work.
This workshop focused on affordable, accessible, natural, and edible measures that people can take daily, as a step of preventative health care, to protect themselves, their families, and communities from illness.

Our building is a perfect example of a vertical community with a variety of condo units stacked 18 floors high. It is challenging for neighbours to not only meet each other, but also get know each other.
