Keep Vancouver Spectacular – South Hill Cleanup Event

The holidays are quickly approaching and to prepare for the hustle and bustle of the holiday season on Fraser Street the South Hill BIA is planning a neighbourhood cleanup to help clean the streets of South Hill and contribute to a cleaner South Hill area and city in time for the holidays.

We are inviting you all to come participate in a few hours of contributing to a cleaner city and to also have some fun with other passionate volunteers. We will have refreshments available and a chance for volunteers to walk away with some prizes donated by some of the sponsors of this event.

No experience is neccessary and we are encouraging everyone to come out to help us Keep Vancouver Spectacular!

See you there! RSVP on our Facebook event below or contact the office if you would like to be involved.

South Hill Festival Recap

On May 25th, 2013, the South Hill BIA hosted a food fair as the 11th annual South Hill Festival returned to Fraser Street. Thankfully the weather stayed relatively dry for the most part and the festival was well attended in general. This year the BIA featured four participating restaurants in the food fair including two newer additions to South Hill. The cuisines of Dairy Queen, Magda’s Restaurant, Pizza Plus and Lovely Thai Restaurant kept the festival crowd happy with great offerings of different cuisines while Jim Cook and Lesismore provided the musical entertainment. Overall it was a great success and the South Hill BIA would like to thank all the participating restaurants, organizations, sponsors, and volunteers who made this event a great success. We look forward to seeing you all at future South Hill events and at the festival next year!

2013 Keep Vancouver Spectacular Event. Thank You to all our volunteers and sponsors!

          On May 4th 2013, the South Hill Business Association along with over 70 volunteers participated in the Annual Keep Vancouver Spectacular event in South Hill.  They spent the morning cleaning the streets and parking lots from 41st Ave to 50th Ave on Fraser Street.  The weather was gorgeous and the enthusiasm and energy of the volunteers was high. A group of volunteers was so dedicated to this annual cleanup event they showed up almost 30 minutes before registration was set to begin which was great to see. After the cleanup volunteers were treated to a selection of refreshments, beverages and pizzas as a small thank you. The South Hill Business Association wrapped up the event with several draw prizes to distribute including gift baskets, certificates, merchandise and gift cards.

This event wouldn’t have been possible without the enthusiasm and participation of all the volunteers who showed up to clean the area and contribute to a cleaner city. We would also like to express a sincere Thank you to the participating BIA members who sponsored the event and provided refreshments, beverages, and draw prizes. Your participation was greatly appreciated and helped make this event a fun success.
