About Paint the Town:
Artists from around the lower mainland celebrate the beauty of White Rock by creating art at various locations.
July 22 is the 4th annual Paint the Town.
We will be creating artwork inspired by the changing urban landscape and the natural beauty of White Rock.
We are thrilled to have been given a grant from the City of White Rock to help produce this important community event.

This year we are connecting with White Rock businesses to include their locations on our Paint the Town map.
During last year’s event, 2 artists were stationed outside White Rock Beach Beer on Russell Avenue. It was a great experience for the patrons to see the artists working
- and the result was 2 beautiful paintings of the White Rock Beach Beer storefront.

Interested businesses can register their locations here. Or call contact Melanie Watts

Winter On Fire​​​

​2015 Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary​

Over 93 days in Ukraine, what started as peaceful student demonstrations became a violent revolution and full-fledged civil rights movement at the heart of a region riven with political and military tensions between Russia and Western Europe.​ “Winter on Fire” captures the idealism and bravery of the Ukrainians who gathered in Maidan Square to protest Ukraine President Viktor F.. Yanukovych’s turn away from the European Union and toward a closer relationship with Russia.​

​"Director Evgeny Afineevsky succeeds brilliantly, turning an after-the-fact reminder of events that have faded from the headlines into a grippingly suspenseful real-life action film. What “Winter on Fire” lacks in journalistic detachment it more than makes up for in fidelity to the feelings and motives of the participants.​"​

Date & Time: Friday ​​​​​​May 26th, 201​7​​ at 7 PM​ - doors open 6:30 PM​

Location: First United Church, Buena Vista Ave​ ​@​ ​Centre St, White Rock​​

​Admission​:​ ​B​y donation​​ (suggested​ minimum​ donation $5)​

Guest expert: ​​​​​​​​​​​​Professor Peter Prontzos (Langara College)

OPENING JAPAN TO THE WORLD circa 1850 by Dr. Beth Foggin

Dr. Foggin gained her PhD from the University of Montreal in Travel Studies. She specializes in all aspects of the Pacific while making her home in South Surrey. She gave a fascinating talk to our club earlier on Alaska. Beth, who now has the envious job of presenting contextual stories on Holland-America Cruise Lines will share some of her tales she recounts on Far East cruises as they approach Japan. Few people realize that after the early discovery of Japan by Portugal & Spain in the 1550, ALL outside influences were banned in the 1600s from the country until US Navy Commodore Perry ‘forced open’ the doors in 1853.


Eagle Lovers Take Note

With the 22mnd Annual Fraser Valley Eagle Festival a mere 6.5 months away (seriously?) we are looking for two very special photos.

The theme photo – that will be featured on the marketing pieces for 2017 and the souvenir buttons.
The sticker photo – each year we produce stickers that we hand out throughout the year at the various events and during the festival weekend.

For all the contest details please visit our website

The photos are selected at our JUNE festival meeting.

Good news for White Rock gardeners

Soon there will be more community garden spaces in White Rock.

Growing By The Sea, a non-profit society, has recently received funding from the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation through Sources Community Resources Society and the Surrey/White Rock Food Action Coalition. This generous support provides the opportunity to double the current Centennial Community Gardens.

“We want to sincerely thank the Horseshoe Club and the City of White Rock,” says Growing By The Sea President, Komal Shaikh Both have offered much appreciated cooperation and support.”

Growing By The Sea is excited to make this announcement,” says Rick Ketcheson, Co-Chair of the Surrey/White Rock Food Action Coalition and Vice-President of Growing By The Sea. “We thank the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation for recognizing the important role gardens play in enhancing the health and wellness of our community. Gardens provide opportunities to grow nutritious food, develop social connections, and nurture beautiful green spaces.”

Centennial Community Garden volunteer coordinator, Pat Christensen, has been part of the group working to develop more garden space. “Our waiting list for community garden space keeps growing,” says Pat. “This new space, adjacent to the existing community gardens, will help tremendously, but we will have to continue our efforts to create more garden spaces. We are always looking for potential garden sites.”

Growing By The Sea welcomes new members to help with the planning for the new gardens. There will also be a need for willing workers when construction of the new beds begins, and soil is moved on-site. 

An afternoon open house to kick off this new project, will be held on Sunday, June 11th from 2 to 4 pm at the Centennial Community Garden on Vine Street.  Anyone interested in Growing By The Sea is welcome to come by.

Contact: or look for us on Facebook (Growing By The Sea).
