The Pep is a new volunteer newsletter, bought to you by the Victoria West Community Association, to help Victoria West volunteers and those who are planning Victoria West community events and projects keep in touch.
The Pep is organized into two major categories:
Short Term Opportunities: Like the Vic West Fest or Potlucks: for those who like to help but are short on time.
Longer Term Opportunities: Like the Food Security Collective or emergency preparedness: for those who would like to be a part of an on going project to help build awareness and strategies in the event of an earthquake or learn how to grow a garden.
Sign up here today!

The Banfield Park Community Orchard Wassail was enjoyed by 90+ on Saturday January 17th. King Evan and Queen Mike kept order and the Morris Dancers kept the rain away! The trees are now awake, good spirits have the bread offering so a bountiful Summer/Fall harvest is coming. Thank you to the volunteers, feast cookers and servers, musicians, Spiral Cafe, Thrifty Foods, Fry's Bakery and all who supported this glorious community celebration. Wassail!
Photos coming soon!
