Coming Soon! The Fraser River, Our Back Door Wonder For 10,000 years the Fraser River has pierced through the centre of our province before reaching the Fraser Valley and a slow meandering journey to the Pacific Ocean. For most of its life, the river offered food and material resources that enabled the Stó:lõ, (the People of the River), to thrive and expand in a series of riverside villages located along the river. The section that flows by Chilliwack is called the gravel reach. Here the river supports 30 species of fish, and provides rich habitats for resident and migrating birds and a host of mammal species. In the last century the river began to change. Flood control measures and developments have altered the landscape and are threatening the health of the river. The museum’s new exhibit looks at the history of the Fraser River and why, today, it is important to understand the processes that created the river and have sustained it for so many centuries. May 21 – July 14 “Shadows” Chilliwack Visual Artists Association group exhibition members work in a wide variety of medias using different techniques.

SPRING/SUMMER 2011 CHILLIWACK LEISURE GUIDE Summer 2011 chilliwack Leisure Guide




Consider bringing along a hot tub the next time you’re in the great outdoors, says Metro Vancouver Softub dealer Paul Block. His product isn’t inflatable; instead, he says, it’s 32 layers of heat bonded industrial foam covered in marine grade vinyl. He believes it’s better than a standard acrylic tub because it’s portable, more energy efficient, and doesn’t require a foundation to be built. It also uses standard 110V power, rather than needing installation of a 220V outlet. The Softub weighs 55 to 85 pounds, depending on the size purchased.

Greendale Elementary Community School Thank you Greendale Elementary Community School would like to thank the City of Chilliwack, and School District #33 for recently supporting the opportunity for Greendale Elementary Community School to begin booking programs for the summer and fall of 2011.

• Exercise programs in the evenings or on weekends • After-school day care • Karate will continue twice a week • Other programs in response to the needs of the community

The purpose of creating a community school in Greendale is to provide a location for students, their families and the larger community to be able to participate in activities that they would normally have to go elsewhere in order to participate.

Our Mission Statement: We believe that Greendale Elementary Community School would be a highly respected multi-service centre, linking children and families with each other and providing service to support the Greendale community as a whole.

Programs that we hope to offer: • Summer camp for kids (for more information, please contact the school) • Rental space for birthday parties/ meetings/conferences (we have a kitchen, multipurpose room, and gymnasium available)

Our board needs you! If you would like to become involved with the Greendale Elementary Community School Board of Directors, please call us for more information about our next meeting. If you have any questions about our up-and-coming summer camp for kids, or want to know more about what may be offered in September, please contact the community school coordinator, Tracey Hawkyard, at 604-823-7281.

The 2008 car of the year is finally available in Canada... The 2011 Mazda 2. Mazda has come up with a uniquely Mazda design and has infused every Mazda 2 with a healthy dose of it’s “fun to drive “ engineering philosophy. There is a new level of performance and refinement being brought to the small car market. While competitors are producing subcompact cars with a focus on a boxy body form to prioritize functionality, Mazda shortened the body overhangs and trimmed the corners to the greatest extent possible as a way to provide a form that is compact and sporty, conveys a sense of stability and inspires confidence. “Zoom-Zoom Concentrated.”
