There's lots of streets getting some love in Lynn Valley!

There are lots of streets getting some love in Lynn Valley!

We recently received an email from NVD Community Beautification Coordinator Courtenay Fraizl (our lovely Adopt-a-Street boss!) It was an inspiring email for two reasons. First, as you can see from the map above (click on image for a closer look), the Lynn Valley neighbourhood is way out in the lead when it comes to the number of “adopted” streets – yay, LV!

But there’s lots of room for more participants, so call Courtenay at 604-990-3841 if you’d like to get in on the action. You’ll get some vests and picker-uppers, and a good excuse for a walk every month! We always learn something new about our neighbourhood when we’re out for a stroll.

Our second source of inspiration was this great quote she sent our way – it’s so true!

Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day what kind of community you want to live in.  – Marjorie Moore
