Local News – Front Porch Blog

Our Neighbourhood News: From the Front Porch of LynnValleyLife

Hi there neighbours, and a very warm welcome to our blog, From the Front Porch of LynnValleyLife.

Why do we call it ‘From the Front Porch’? Because that’s where the real news of a community is shared – on front porches and sidewalks, and in coffee shops and playgrounds. So sit down and stay awhile…. and check back regularly, so we can keep you in the Lynn Valley loop.

Visit here for musings on local life from our neighbourhood observer, Lynn O’Malley, and stories from our editor Peggy Trendell-Jensen. Publisher Jim Lanctot weighs in with news from the world of Lynn Valley real estate, and we look forward to bringing you a range of guest voices from your valley neighbours.

If you have any tidbits of interest, please send them along to our neighbourhood news-gatherer, Robin, at robin@lynnvalleylife.com.  We can’t guarantee we’ll be able to post them all, but we’ll do our best to spread the word on this blog page or on our Facebook site!

“Yes sir, yes sir, two bags full….”

But it wasn't wool I was bringing home from the market, it was two bags of books from the library book sale, which runs until Sunday afternoon. Oh, those orphaned tomes are hard to resist, aren't they? Even though I knew my shelves were already bursting, I couldn't help myself ...

Full house at Browns for opening night

Full house at Browns for opening night

I was fortunate enough to be one of those at the Browns' "Thirsty Rehearsal" on Sunday night, happily acting as a guinea pig for the kitchen and serving staff. You'd think that would have satisfied my pent-up curiosity enough that I could have stayed home tonight and thrown a log ...

A little bit about LynnValleyLife…

There's no shortage of things to be thankful for here in Lynn Valley. But I can tell from the water cooler buzz around here that the LynnValleyLife team is definitely glad this 'interweb' site is up and running, and I hope you are, too. You may already have met the ...
