For the week of July 15 – July 21, 2019


                                                       *** UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS ***


Film Night Raven People Rising, Friday July 26 at 7pm, 30 minutes, Metchosin Community House Ric Perron. The Heilstuk Nation upholds an unbroken lineage of ancestral teachings that powerfully connect people to place. Witness how the Heiltsuk used the courts to stop Enbridge — backed by thousands of supporters via the Pull Together campaign. With deep implications for fish farms and orca whales, the Heiltsuk have launched the first ever aboriginal title claim for the seabed and foreshore: their historic case stands to set a powerful precedent for all coastal peoples. The film will be presented by members of Raven, the organization who made the film.



It is summertime at the Community House and our usual Activity User Groups are on hiatus for the months of July and August so it’s a quiet week for activities at the House. The afternoon knitting group will be back next week, July 23 from 1pm – 3pm and then they will take a hiatus for the month of August. VIHA continues through the summer on Monday’s and Wednesday’s at the House. We will keep you posted of up and coming events and if you are looking for a venue for any summer entertaining we have some open time on our calendar and would love to help you out. Just call or drop by the House and we can fill you in on our rental rates and availability.

Volunteer Opportunities

The Metchosin Community House has many fun events throughout the year that always rely on the volunteer support of our members, to which we are very grateful. We always place a callout for volunteers at times of our largest fundraisers, but there are always other ways to become involved throughout the year that gives people the chance to be active and have fun in this wonderful community and creates the opportunity to meet some new friends as well. If you would like to become more involved in your community and lend a hand give us a call, we’d love to hear from you. 478-5155.
