Food-For-Thought Luncheon on Monday, May 1st

Join us for a musical lunch that could change your life!

Music can name the unnamable and communicate the unknowable.” – Leonard Bernstein.

Join Maxine Fisher to experience and learn more about how to use music to lead healthier lives for yourselves and your loved ones.

Music therapy, as defined by the Canadian Association for Music Therapy, is the skillful use of music and musical elements by an accredited music therapist to promote, maintain and restore mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health. Music has nonverbal, creative, structural and emotional qualities. These are used in the therapeutic relationship to facilitate contact, interaction, self-awareness, learning, self-expression, communication and personal development.

Maxine Fisher is a Registered Clinical Counsellor & an Accredited Music Therapist. To learn more visit www.victoriafamilycounselling.com.

JCCV Film Night on Monday, March 27th


Monday, March 27th at 7:00 pm

 Announcing the triumphal return of Victoria’s all time favourite movie:


From South Africa’s filmmaker Jamie Uys. From a meager budget of 5 million dollars this original and thought-provoking comedy went on to delight audiences world wide.

Xi, a Kalahari bushman, takes it upon himself to return an unwanted coke bottle to the Gods. On his journey he encounters a lovelorn micro-biologist, a Johannesburg school teacher newly installed in a small jungle village, and a band of terrorists bent on overthrowing the government of the day. All are enmeshed in a plot so insane, it could only happen in the “civilized” world!

The gods must be crazy but maybe we are even crazier!

Please join us for a fun evening of cinema…schmoozing…discussing and generally having a good time! State of the Art projection on the new large screen & great sound system!

Popcorn and cold drinks included in the $10 price of admission.

Always a classic cartoon or two prior to the feature! Doors open at 6:30 PM.
