Help Mandy and Carmen support the Canadian Cancer Society by buying a yellow daffodil pin at Donald's Market this month. Last year, the Hastings store raised $2,207.05, and they mean to double it this year. Let's help them beat their record!
We're celebrating our anniversary! Thirteen years ago this week, the Hastings North Business Improvement Association was formed as a reincarnation of the Hastings Chamber of Commerce. We're incredibly proud of the work we've done in the past 13 years, from murals, public art installations, graffiti and street clean-ups, curb greening, our first community bike racks, and more. We're proud of our partnership with the Hastings Sunrise Community Policing Centre, which delivers our business safety programs, and co-hosts our community events, like the annual Sunrise Summer Kickoff. Most of all, we're proud to be part of your community. Thank you for 13 wonderful years in the Hastings-Sunrise and Grandview-Woodland neighbourhoods!
A warm welcome to Switchblade Surfboards, repairing and building handmade (by hand) custom surfboards on Pandora Street since fall 2012. "It started in a garage as a hobby," said Hamish, one of three partners. "Now we do retail, repairs, and custom builds. We're the only shop in Vancouver that is 100 per cent dedicated to surfing."
A warm welcome to Scandilicious Foods, now open, at their second location, at 25 Victoria Drive. The family-owned Scandinavian eatery is a labour of love started by Anita and her daughters, Kristina and Karlie, in memory of Anita's mother, Sunny. They are overwhelmed by the warm welcome they have received at their new commissary at Powell and Victoria. "This is such a beautiful community," said Anita, "We love it here!"
