We have this shed, 10' x 10' that has to be moved right away. It is in great shape and could be shared with someone willing to be a supplies spot in Burnaby. Just need a corner of a yard to put it in. No animals , just supplies.

If you are at all interested please let us know right

Another of the Things to get done at last minute , list.

Or if you want to buy it for your own use that is another possiblity...

The Great Compost Sale 2010!

kduncan | March 27, 2010

We are so grateful for the quickly organized compost fundraiser sale Fri and Sat. i have just heard from Janet and daughter Stephanie that $1253.00 came in (after expenses!)

What a great idea they had...And thank you so much to the shoveling crew... Helen, Kate, Jenny , Morgan, michelle,Susan, Eme, Neva, Dan, ?? , and Murray. I don't know all names but thank you for your back breaking...!

i think this is a brilliant fundraiser and may have to be repeated in April if we can get a ton of shovelers and helpers out . Smoothly done all...!

VOKRA Evening of Thanks

on March 31

Please join us!

2010 is VOKRA's 10th year of rescue work and we could never have reached this point without our foster parents, volunteers, donors, sponsors, and other supporters.

To say "Thank You" we are having a party on March 31: an informal evening of food and drinks, music and entertainment, raffles and laughs.

When: doors open at 6:00pm, March 31

Where: Cuppa Joy Coffee House, 2083 Alma Street, Vancouver


Who: GUESTS OF ALL AGES WELCOME. Bring friends and family who're interested in becoming part of VOKRA.


  • finger foods and other snacks

  • cash bar (beer, cider, wine) and non-alcoholic beverages

  • dessert supplied by Pink Penguin Cakes

  • comedienne Morgan Brayton, who's created a special routine for VOKRA

  • raffles throughout the evening: concert tickets, nifty gift baskets, and other goodies

  • Pennies for Kitties Contest: Bring your jars of spare change that've been gathering dust for months. We'll empty them all into a big bowl and whoever guesses closest to the total amount wins a cool prize.

To help us plan, RSVPs would be appreciated. But if you won't know until the last minute, come anyway!

Volunteers are needed for compost sale this weekend. All the money raised goes to VOKRA.

The sale runs today (Friday) from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm, and Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm, at 2586 West 12th Avenue, at Trafalgar, in Kitsilano.

We still need A LOT MORE volunteers to help us shovel it into bags.

Email Janet Hamilton at, and let us know when you are available.

Even just half an hour of your time would be terrific. Just before sale time is best, but anytime during the sale is good, too.

Please tell your friends and family about the sale. Just $4 per bag, and the bags are large. It might be raining lightly during the sale, but that will keep us cool when we are shoveling!
