Disaster strikes when we least expect it, but being prepared can save lives and reduce the impact on our community. That’s why GWAC is thrilled to announce an Emergency Preparedness info session presented by the knowledgeable and experienced DJ Lawrence. 🎙️✨
Join us for a comprehensive 90-minute session that covers everything you need to know about earthquakes, floods, and wildfires. DJ Lawrence will share practical tips and real-life experiences to motivate you to start planning and preparing for any potential catastrophes that might come our way. 📝✅
Bring your notepad and pen because you won’t want to miss a single tip from this informative and entertaining session. Plus, there will be a Q&A session afterward where you can ask questions and seek further guidance. 🤔🗣️
Let’s come together as a community and ensure we are ready to face any challenges that may arise. Mark your calendars and be prepared to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your neighborhood. See you there! 🌟🤝

Hello Friends of REACH Community Health Centre,
On June 25, from 7:00 to 8:30pm, REACH will be holding a public forum at the Learning Resources Centre (under the Library) at Britannia Community Centre.
This event will begin a series of regular public forums that REACH will host to enable the people of Grandview Woodlands and East Vancouver to come together to talk about health care, including what services we have and what services we need to support a healthy community.
This first meeting will be an opportunity for you to hear about what’s new at REACH, and what issues some of our allies and partners are facing. It will also be an important opportunity for all of us to talk about the priorities that REACH should be paying attention to, and what steps we need to take to keep community health in community hands.
You do not need to be a patient at REACH to attend any of these forums. We welcome all of the people in East Vancouver, including the many who already use our health services.
Please tell your friends, and be sure to put June 25th on your calendar.
The next public GWAC meeting will be held at 7:00pm Monday, January 8, 2018 Location: Learning Resource Centre, (LRC) Under the Britannia Library
