Welcome to Dunbar Village

A Message from DVBA Mysha Dewar-McClelland President of the Dunbar Village Business Association Happy New Year and welcome to a new decade! We extend a big thank you to Stong’s Market and Vancity for sponsoring DVBA’s Dunbar Village for the Holidays on December 14. Horse and carriage rides, carollers and hot chocolate helped make this a very festive event! Thank you to everyone who attended and also donated to the Vancouver Food Bank. February is in full swing with a well-earned Family Day long weekend to look forward to. It is so wonderful to see the days getting longer again; the first day of spring is only a month away. Dunbar’s streets will soon be beautifully dressed with pink and white cherry tree blossoms. Students have Spring Break to look forward to from March 16 to 27 and the Easter long weekend comes shortly thereafter on April 10. Did you know that Dunbar Village formed our Business Association 12 years ago this April? On the cover we celebrate Dunbar’s favourite community sport – Dunbar Little League. From the start of the season until its end, Little League entertains excited families and friends alike. The Dunbar Little League is extremely grateful to the local businesses that support them through sponsorships. They invite everyone to come out to a game, visit


the annual Stong’s tournament, or cheer at the year end parade. This year stands out in particular as the first time Dunbar is hosting the Provincials right here on their home field. In this issue, read about award-winning cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Jang and plastic surgeon Dr. Nick Carr who operate neighbouring businesses. Dr. Jang currently partnered with Dermapure and rebranded to Skinworks Dermapure, an Aesthetic Medicine Clinic offering non-surgical options to help bring back a more youthful looking you. Dr. Carr is one of Canada’s top plastic surgeons; patients travel from across Canada to have work done at his cosmetic medical clinic Skinworks. We say goodbye to Kokopelli Café and Sunday Small Goods while waiting to see what new businesses will arrive in their place. Dunbar continues to undergo many updates to its landscape, including a new community garden in the 4400 block. Spring is in the air so savour every moment as buds open, temperatures rise, and the great outdoors calls you to explore our community by foot or bike. We appreciate this warm and friendly community that we call home. Thank you for your continued support of our local businesses.

A Decade of Gardening Trends Research shows that kids are excited by pollinators, plants and growing food. These “trends” are taking a hold in Vancouver gardens as well, with many homeowners opting to protect bees by eliminating their use of pesticides and planting pollinatorfriendly flowering plants. Many residents have integrated raised vegetable gardens in their yards. Our climate allows us to grow food year-round, a rare Canadian feat. Integrate raised vegetable gardens into your yard by combining with bench seating, arbors, fruit tree trellises, and enjoy the bounty of fresh organic food. In the past decade we have seen early adopters replace their lawn with micro clover. Clover can be a great solution, but we’ve observed that certain conditions need to be met to ensure success. Clover needs sun, otherwise it can be patchy. Leave it long and natural or keep it mowed. Clover tends to spread to surrounding garden beds and needs to be kept in check at its desired boundaries.

Take part in the Circular Economy – Install Bark Mulch Supporting your local economy and reducing the use of chemicals in the garden can be achieved by installing bark mulch on your garden beds. Rebuild your soil with a topdressing of composted mulch which is made locally and a recycled forestry product. Gardening for Events Get your garden in peak condition with a detailed garden clean up. Create a colourful, welcoming atmosphere for guests with the addition of seasonal container planting displays. Homeowners hosting parties for weddings and various New Year celebrations are wowing their friends and family with new containers, planting of annuals and specialty plants to make their garden and outdoor space shine on their special day.

Skinworks Dermapure: Aesthetic Medicine Clinic Story by Sarah Gordon

Photos submitted

Crow’s feet. Forehead wrinkles. Lines around the mouth. The dreaded “11’s” between the brows. While some people feel comfortable with these signs of aging and wouldn’t change a thing, others would like to minimize them. Practicing an at home beauty routine by using skincare products such as serums, anti-wrinkle creams and moisturizers is an important step to accelerate cell renewal and restore elasticity to the skin. Combining this regime with products that have a high SPF and avoiding the sun as much as possible is also key. Starting at age 25 we lose one percent of our collagen. When you reach your 30s often the first signs of sun damage, skin deflation and wrinkles begin to surface.

Skinworks Dermapure Aesthetic Medicine Clinic offers non-surgical options to help bring back a more youthful looking you. Renowned Vancouver dermatologist Dr. Frances Jang founded Skinworks in 2003. In 2017 she partnered with Dermapure, Canada’s leader in aesthetic medicine, to help broaden


her offerings and to support the increasing demand for non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Located on West 41st Avenue near Dunbar Street, Skinworks Dermapure has earned an excellent reputation. For the past 11 years the clinic has held the title of Best Place for a Non-Surgical Makeover. The Georgia Straight newspaper presents this prestigious award based on the “Best of Vancouver” public vote. A step ahead of her field in both laser and injection treatments, Dr. Frances Jang has built an enviable reputation across the country. She has set the gold standard for injections, and in terms of technology, specifically in the aesthetic medicine field. She is constantly on the lookout for best practices that will help benefit her clientele. Renowned for her artistic sensibility and innovation in her use of combination nonsurgical modalities, Dr. Jang recently visited Seoul, South Korea to learn about reshaping the Asian face. She considers the “long term approach” in terms of caring for her patients, thus creating natural age-appropriate beauty. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Adelyn Ho joined the clinic in 2017. She specializes in rejuvenating injections and laser treatment of imperfections

Dr. Frances Jang and rosacea, along with minor surgery such as mole removals. In addition, she has her own plastic surgery practice in Richmond.

Skinworks Dermapure is at the forefront of cosmetic rejuvenation. The clinic delivers visible, safe and natural results. Rejuvenating injections include facial fillers such as hyaluronic acid fillers and neurotoxins such as Botox Cosmetic or Dysport. Fillers are used to replace volume in areas that have become hollow and flat to lift and smooth the skin. Treatment areas may include the temples, forehead, under eye hollows, cheeks, nasolabial folds, lower facial lines, lips, chin and jawline. Volumizing injections are often combined with neuromodulator injections to provide immediate rejuvenating effects. They are particularly useful for adding volume to lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks and other areas of the face. DunbarLife.com

Dr. Adelyn Ho Dr. Jang says, “The way we use fillers at Skinworks Dermapure has changed dramatically over the last decade, in that we are no longer exclusively chasing wrinkles and folds. This often led to an unnatural appearance, discouraging new and existing patients. We are using fillers to support, and reshape features to optimize facial beauty and youth; using fillers in this way often slims the face rather than creating a bulky, puffy look...a really satisfying paradigm shift.”

“Studies show that the average person looks seven years younger after treatment.” Dr. Frances Jang Dr. Jang regards Botox Cosmetic as her workhorse. She says, “It benefits essentially all faces. Interestingly, we have observed that this retraining of muscles makes people not only look but feel better as well.” “I understand that patients coming to me want to be the best version of themselves regardless

children who are all medical professionals. She is a cyclist; loves to travel, and has strong passion for health and wellness.

“Choose a doctor who inspires you.” Dr. Adelyn Ho

Dr. Jang’s most important goal is her patients’ happiness. She is honoured that they trust her and her team to deliver evidence based advice and treatments.

Dr. Ho says, “I love the marriage between nonsurgical and surgical rejuvenation and I feel that my training as a plastic surgeon provided me with a unique set of skills and a different perspective when injecting, compared to other practitioners.”

She says, “While I remain committed to medical science, my love for all things beautiful along with my decades of delivering full time patient care, has resulted in a loyal, long standing patient clientele.”

“Outside of the clinic, I am a busy mom of two so there is not a lot of time for hobbies! With that being said, I make it a priority to work on my personal health by working out with my trainer twice a week, hiking with friends, and jumping on my Peloton spin bike at home. I do really enjoy cooking and anything related to crafts, such as sewing and knitting,” says Dr. Ho.

Welcome Spring With Fresh and Bright Colours! Article and photos submitted by Aisling Ely, West Side Paint & Decorting If like many others, you are painstakingly waiting for that fresh spring breeze to come and knock the winter cobwebs (and any last remaining snow!) away, then this article is for you! Let’s look at some ways freshen up and brighten your home and welcome a spring feeling, perhaps even before those long awaited rays hit your window. 1. Add white! White adds brightness to any space. This doesn’t mean you need to paint all your walls white (you can of course!), but even adding touches of white will freshen your space. Add a crisp white tablecloth and white accessories. Take it a step further and add a new lease of life to any tired furniture with a few coats of chalk paint. It’s quick and easy to do! (Call in store or check out our website for helpful tips.

bright colour (that works with your colour scheme), or a lighter shade of the current wall colour. Paint is an inexpensive way to dramatically change the mood and feel of your surroundings. You could even play with adding wallpaper with a fun theme, again thinking to the outdoors - floral, wildlife, birds. There are a variety of degrees of intensity from a soft floral outline with reflective gold qualities to bright almost brash prints to inject intense vibrancy into the space! 4. Start with first impressions! Inject some colour into your front door, perhaps something like Benjamin Moore’s Caribbean Blue Water (2055-30), it will have you dreaming of bright Maui skies in no time! Or try Hawthorn Yellow (HC-4) for a sunshine fresh infusion. Add a white flower wreath, some potted plants and don’t forget to switch out your welcome mat; voila!

2. Change up your fabric choices, or add some more in. An easy way to do this is to change out the covers on your throw cushions, or take it a step further and reupholster your dining chair seats. If you have wooden seats, you could add dining cushions. We have a wide selection of fabrics in store. For a spring injection, think about adding in outdoor themed prints such as flowers, leafs, and birds. Bright or pastel colours would work well here too, depending on the overall look you are trying to achieve. 3. Add a focal wall - usually the one you see first in a room works well. Try painting it a 14

of this may become too yellow for it to be considered subtle, it would be outstanding on a kitchen wall with wooden shelves, filled with mason jars of ingredients. Or perhaps a wall full of photos with clean white frames. • First Light (2102-70) - Of course we can’t forget our 2020 Colour of the Year! An uplifting rosy hue; add it to your line up for your spring infusion to brighten up your home. Pair it with Simply White (OC-117) for a warm, bright feeling or try it with Chantilly Lace (OC-65) for a crisper look. Either way, continue to bring the outdoors in with big green leafy plants and prints and your sure to find your spring haven.

When it comes to choosing colours to freshen up your home, there are many ways you could go.

One way would be an injection of bright, flamboyant colours that vibrate with energy, another way would be to choose pastel tones to bring a lightness to your space in a subtler way. Depending on what you already have going on in your home, these colours can be brought in in many different ways. Here are some Benjamin Moore colours to consider: Bold Statements: • Fan Coral (013) - A bright colour punch, it can be traditional and vintage, yet elegantly modern depending on how you style it. • Carribbean Blue Water (2055-30) - This colour is fresh, rejuvenating and crisp, bring it out as a feature wall or in your accessories • Tangerine Zing (132) - Full of zest! Be playful with this colour; can you add it in in an unusual way? Perhaps a window trim, or fun accessories?

Inspired to change your colours up, but still unsure where to start? We are available for both in store and in home colour consultations. Reach us in person, by phone or through our website and we will help you find the best colour for you! Check out our Spring Special (featured in this magazine!).

Subtle Freshness - Think of teaming these with a clean neutral cream like Simply White (OC-117): • Summer Shower (2135-60) - A refreshing pale blue to add tranquility to your home. • Ray of Light (CSP-910) - While a full wall DunbarLife.com

The Art of Beautiful Medicine Story by Sarah Gordon

Plastic surgery does more than enhance your appearance – it changes the way you think and feel about yourself. Whether you are concerned about aging, body proportion or an unattractive feature, plastic or cosmetic surgery is safer and more common than you think. Skinworks is a private cosmetic medical clinic centrally located on West 41st Avenue near Dunbar Street where patients receive high quality care in a safe, sophisticated and confidential setting from plastic surgeon Dr. Nick Carr. This experienced medical specialist is highly respected in the cosmetic field. Dr. Carr practices the highest quality of surgical care in a private operating room that is fully accredited by The College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C. and is staffed by a fully trained, highly skilled and dedicated team of operating room professionals.


Over the years Dr. Carr has successfully treated thousands of patients. After more than 25 years in practice, Dr. Carr is one of Vancouver’s most experienced cosmetic plastic surgeons, specializing in breast, tummy and advanced facial techniques. He has performed hundreds of breast augmentations and is renowned for his pioneer work with endoscopic and minimal incision techniques. Dr. Carr combines his technical expertise and artistic vision to create a safe, natural-looking, aesthetically pleasing outcome for his patients. After graduating from UBC with the highest honours in his medical school class, he

February 15 - April 15, 2020


completed a fellowship year at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Carr’s commitment to teaching plastic surgery has paralleled his thriving clinical practice; beginning with his appointment as Director of Vancouver General Hospital Plastic Surgery Unit, followed by Program Director of the UBC Plastic Surgery Residency Training Program and finally, as the Head of Plastic Surgery at UBC; a position he has now held for more than a decade. Distinguished for his technical skills and problem-solving capabilities, he is often the “go-to” plastic surgeon in tertiary care and complex cosmetic cases.


Dr. Carr has been credited as one of Canada’s Top Cosmetic Surgeons, and he was peer chosen in 2007-2008 as one of “The Best Doctors in Canada.” The cosmetic medical clinic has been voted Best in Cosmetic Surgery in Vancouver by The Georgia Straights’ readers ten times.

February 15 - April 15, 2020


Skinwork’s most common surgeries include facelifts, breast augmentation and lifts, tummy tucks and rhinoplasty. They also see a lot of male clients for surgeries such as gynecomastia, liposuction of tummy and hip rolls, facelifts, blepharoplasy and body lifts. The clinic performs many post-pregnancy “mommy makeovers” including tummy tucks, breast lifts and sometimes implants. In addition to Dr. Carr, Skinworks has a team of 16 staff including Dr. Dick Lee (anesthesiologist), registered nurses, patient coordinator, and customer service assistants. What can you expect during a consultation? Dr. Carr’s patient coordinator, Tammy, will obtain your medical history. During a consultation Dr. Carr will review your medical history and discuss your surgical goals. He will examine your areas of concern, discuss treatment options, offer his recommendations and answer any questions about possible procedures. One happy client reports, “Dr. Carr is excellent. I had rhinoplasty with him and his judgment was excellent. My nose looks natural. His staff is excellent and his operating room is spotless and you actually feel at ease when you are waiting to be put under. I would definitely see him again!”

and the results are beautiful. I appreciated his patience during my consultation – I had endless questions and his staff were always supportive, enthusiastic and available.” Dr. Carr says, “My approach is to treat each patient as an individual – just like a member of my own family – offering the best of plastic surgery technology combined with my own experience as to what really works and what is most appropriate for them. I take the time to make sure patients understand all surgical options, what to expect and how much “down time” they will have. Ultimately this ensures a rewarding experience – and the best possible aesthetic results – for all my patients.” Outside of his practice Dr. Carr is actively involved in volunteering. He travels annually to Uganda to work for two weeks in hospitals with other Canadian surgeons. He feels privileged to offer his medical expertise. As well, Skinworks is pleased to sponsor medical students in Tanzania to help launch their careers. Patients come from across Canada to have work done by Dr. Carr. If you are contemplating plastic or cosmetic surgery, visit Skinworks’ website and discover why this leading Vancouver specialist receives glowing testimonials.

Another client comments, “Dr. Carr is an artist! My facelift looks completely natural – not tight. He listened to my concerns before surgery

Calling All the Budding Fashionistas One of a mom’s biggest challenges is to find a great afterschool program that the kids will find fun, interesting and where they can hopefully learn a new skill. While Vancouver offers a lot of sports programs and academic activities for kids and teens, options are more limited if you’re seeking something unique. That’s where Laurie Allan Franks found herself eight years ago with her two girls who were then eight and eleven years old. She was challenged to find programs suited for her creative girls. The same went for finding venues for summer camps and birthday parties. At the time, Laurie was involved in more traditional fine arts instruction, but decided it was time for something new in Vancouver for her girls and others like them. In 2013, La Movida Fashion Design Academy (formerly La Movida Sewing and Design Studios) opened its doors on West Broadway offering specialty classes that included fashion


illustration, fashion design and sewing classes. Maybe it’s not on your radar, but unique options are available for those kids looking for something special. La Movida Fashion Design Academy, seven years later, offers a wide variety of classes including introductory sewing for kids and adults, fashion design classes for more advanced youth, intensive boot camps, and adult classes such as pattern drafting and illustration. La Movida also partners with local schools in their community to bringing practical life skills to the students. They support the community by donating to local charities and opening its doors to the home-schooling community. The best way to try it out is to go to the studio for a workshop, free sewing class, or book a special event or birthday party. If you’re ready to jump right in, take a set of sewing classes. Register anytime throughout the year.

Dunbar Little League: Get to Know us Better Story by Joyce Gillespie, DLL President

Photos by Sandra Steier & submitted

Have you ever driven past the corner of West 33rd Avenue and Dunbar Street between April and July and wondered what is going on at Memorial Park? Perhaps you have taken a closer look and realized there were a bunch of kids playing baseball. For those of us that know and love Dunbar Little League, we are well versed in its 62-year history. We truly grasp how lovely it is to see neighbourhood children experiencing the freedom of riding their bikes to the park for their game and hanging around all afternoon to watch their friends play. Us DLL’ers (as we refer to ourselves) genuinely count down the days until spring as we can’t wait for the concession to open. It’s great taking a few nights off cooking and being able to feed the entire family for under $50. We revel in the competitiveness and level of skill our volunteer coaches bring to the diamond and we are so impressed by how quickly the players improve. Although the sport

may start more slowly at the lower levels, in a few short seasons the intensity and level of fun increases exponentially. Most of all, you would be hard-pressed to find someone whose kid plays Dunbar Little League who does not love the legendary BBQs in the outfield during the games and afterward, where regardless of the outcome of the game, all the parents and players from both teams stay and socialize. While the park serves as the de facto town hall for so many, there is still a large contingent of our neighbourhood that may wonder about the goings-on at Memorial Park between April to July. It may feel as though Dunbar Little League is like that restaurant that always seems busy when you drive by it, but you never actually go in and check out why it’s so popular.

As we reach out to our greater Dunbar neighbourhood, we invite you to get to know us better.

Grace Cooper 26

February 15 - April 15, 2020


Here are a few fast facts about Dunbar Little League: • We are a 100% volunteer-run organization. • Many of our local community sponsors have been supporters of Dunbar Little League since its inception in 1958. • We are, quite simply, one of the last true neighbourhood sporting associations. In an age where sports associations vie with specialized club teams to raise the level of their competitiveness, DLL has stayed true to its core values of being a community association where children, regardless of skill or background, are welcome to join. We have also developed a strong post-season culture to support our athletes who strive for a higher level of competition. • We remain true to our founding commitment to our players that, during our regular season, we only play one another instead of teams outside DLL. The level of fun and comradery that springs from neighbours playing neighbours cannot be underestimated. • A number of our volunteers, despite their children having aged out of Little League baseball long ago, continue to contribute their time and resources because of the strong bonds of friendship they forged during their time in DLL. One such volunteer is Don Currie, who, at 80 years young, is still an active part of our league and has been so for nearly 50 years!

on how quickly their little player engages in the competitive spirit of the game or how rewarding their children find the experience because there are many different skill accomplishments that encourage the athlete in every child at this level. The eight-week season starts on April 18 with an official opening ceremony and concludes on June 20.

On closing day a parade takes place down Dunbar Street. All of the players in their uniforms are joined by the Vancouver Canadians mascot, antique cars, police escort, and fire trucks! Within our season we host a number of different events to continually support our culture of a strong community. On May 31 we host a pancake breakfast and fun skills competition for our graduating 12-year-old players. On Mother’s Day we serve a special brunch item (free of charge) to all our moms and grandmas in the stands. On June 6 we

People often ask, “What does baseball season actually look like and isn’t it boring?” While some people may find the T-ball years (ages 4 to 6) a bit dull, almost every parent comments DunbarLife.com

have our annual coaches game, which gives our players an opportunity to see if their coach can actually do what he or she has been asking of them all season. We understand there is some fast and furious betting that takes place under the grandstand, with more than a few hot dogs and slushies at stake! Behind the scenes is a dedicated cohort of volunteers. Many work year-round to prepare for the upcoming season and are constantly looking for new ways to engage our local sponsors, improve the level of development for our players, attract new players to the game and most importantly, increase awareness about the DLL to our neighbourhood. This year, as a result of the dedication of our committed volunteers, we have secured the largest funding grant in the history of Dunbar Little League! Through the Vancouver Canadians baseball organization and The Cape Group “Change up Field Project,” Dunbar Little League has been awarded $50,000 to refurbish our facilities. We are so excited to be able to make these


improvements, which will directly benefit our players and neighbourhood for years to come.

On July 18 to 25 we prepare to host the rest of the province for the Little League Provincial Championships. We want to start with an open invitation to our neighbours — please take a moment to drop by anytime between April and July; we will be there, likely with a burger in hand, waiting for you! For updates on all our events throughout this season, please visit our website. It is not too late to register your player!
