Support for Coulter Berry building continues to grow
While not intended, a rally at the Fort Langley Community Hall today brought back the joyful memory of the ground breaking celebration of the Coulter Berry building in August of 2013. The on-again off-again drama of the building’s construction continues to fuel the coffee shop conversations. Another round of public hearings on the Coulter Berry Building
commences at Township of Langley Council Chambers this Monday evening (March 10, 2014).

Brenda Alberts, on behalf of the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery, makes presentation to Black Star Liner
Black Star Liner is passionate about preserving the historic Pothouse Spring community lands in St. John’s Parish in Barbados. Almost single-handedly Black has been the volunteer custodian of the site which includes a natural spring and the remains of a 17th century plantation. Pothouse, also the name of a nearby village, refers to pottery making which used to be a plantation based industry. With good clay deposits in Barbados, pots were originally made for use in the manufacture of sugar. To help Black with his gardening endeavours the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery donated an inverter, the last critical component needed for his solar energy system, to run his irrigation pump. Pothouse Spring is located a short distance from St. John’s Church built in 1645. Barbados Day is planned this year at the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery on Saturday August 16, 2014.

The cafe, located on Billy Brown Road, overlooking the Bedford Channel, will serve local organic cuisine with a First Nations twist and JJ Bean specialty coffees. “LELEM’” means “our home” – a place to gather. Meet you at lelem’

The Winning Goal by Richard Brodeur raised $4,000 at fundraiser.
A painting by BC artist and Canucks’ former goalie, King Richard Brodeur scored big time at last night’s annual fundraiser for Aldergrove/Fort Langley MLA, the Hon. Rich Coleman. The evening’s theme, “It’s just like Christmas!”, recalled the B.C. Liberals’ unbelievable win this past provincial election. You, too, can make a wish… for a King Richard painting this Christmas.
