Strathcona, Vancouver's First NeighbourhoodStrathcona, Vancouver’s oldest and truly unique neighbourhood, has been called a slum, “home of the working man,” and absolutely charming. Starting out as a collection of shacks and cottages around the Hastings Mill, it developed into a residential area that quickly moved south and east away from the mill...

Hello fellow Strathconians,
October’s meeting is unique for three reasons:1. It’s on October 1st (weird but soon)

3. It starts at 7 pm not at 7:15 (change is frightening, but this slight adjustment is manageable?)
Please mark you calendars now: SRA meeting and AGM, Wednesday October 1st at 7 pm sharp. (at the Strathcona Community Centre, 601 Keefer Street)
We are committed to having guest...
