Georgia’s Art School

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Georgia teaches ages 3 – 12 with lessons being either private or semi private (max of 3). She also offers a successful art program that helps those children who have an awkward pencil grip, lack focus and low self esteem.

Check out the school web site as it has loads of information as well a short video about the school.

Please feel free to contact me anytime for information about my classes or your child’s enrollment.

Classes are held in three semesters: September to December,  January to March, and April to June.

Recycle Your Christmas Tree

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

January 7 and 8, 2012 from 10am to 4pm bring your live, cut tree to Kerrisdale Community Ice Rink parking lot (East Boulevard north of 41st Avenue) to be chipped.

Annually, the City of Vancouver, together with volunteers from the Lions Clubs in Vancouver, provides residents with Christmas tree chipping events during the month of January. In 2011, about 2,600 live cut trees were chipped during the events and composted at the Vancouver Landfill.

Continue to support the Lions Clubs by bringing your live, cut tree to the 2012 weekend chipping events. Donations of cash and non-perishable food items will be distributed to local charities.

Other Disposal Options

If you receive City yard trimmings collection service, you may set out your live cut Christmas tree on your regular collection day.  Christmas trees will be collected by City crews until January 31.  Trees should be set out on their own 1 metre clear of your cart(s) and laid on their sides.  Do not place the tree inside your cart.  Do not bag or bundle the tree.  Please remember to remove all decorations and tinsel.

Alternatively, you may drop off your tree at the Vancouver South Transfer Station or the Vancouver Landfill at no charge up to and including January 31.
