Today is Vancouver's Family Place Day! To celebrate this and the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, we are having a potluck after our morning drop in. Our drop in will start at the normal time (9:30 AM), and the potluck lunch will begin at 11:30 AM. We would love to have you join us!, just show up with some food to share!

There are also four other Family Places in Vancouver. Please take a few minutes to peruse their websites to find out more!
