jccv-lively-walking-group-image

JCCV Lively Walks: a new series begins on Friday, October 13th, 2017

These group walks, open to all moderately-fit walkers, take place on alternate Friday mornings, rain or shine. Varied routes taking one to one and a half hour at a lively pace cover a range of terrain in parks and neighbourhoods, on trails and pedestrian pathways, all with the aims of good health, enjoyment of our environment, and socializing. After each walk, there’s an optional café stop. No need to commit to the whole series; come when you can and walk at your own risk.

Details of where to meet and route descriptions are e-mailed out by the Wednesday preceding each Friday walk. To be on this season’s list, please contact volunteer leader Juliet Simon at jhsimon@shaw.ca.

JCCV FILM NIGHT

Monday, April 24th at 7:00 pm

The JCCV Film Night Crew Announces April’s Screening of

THE WICKER MAN

Starring: Edward Woodward, Britt Ekland, Christopher Lee. Release date 1973.

When a young girl mysteriously vanishes, Police Sergeant Howie travels to a remote Scottish Island to investigate. But the seemingly quiet community is not as it appears as the detective uncovers a secretive pagan society led by the strange Lord Summerisle.

While the townsfolk tempt and threaten him with bizarre rituals and wanton lust, Howie must race to discover the truth behind the girl’s disappearance before his clash with Lord Summerisle builds to a terrifying conclusion…one that has cemented this cult shocker as a modern horror masterpiece.

On the BBC list of the best 100 British films.

Please join us for this unusual film on April 24th at 7:00 pm. Doors open at 6:30 pm.

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

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

Always a classic cartoon and newsreel prior to the feature!
