ALEX HOUSE: Summer fun in full swing

Camps, drop-ins running throughout July and August

Our Wednesday Neighbourhood Fun Night summer program has returned, beginning this week and running weekly at 6:30 p.m. until the end of August.

Activities and events for kids, adults, and families at Camp Alex and around Crescent Beach are a great way to meet your neighbours in a lively, relaxed atmosphere.

Check soon for more details on our website,

n Lengthen, strengthen, improve your posture and look great this summer.

Join us for Pilates by the Sea at Beecher Place on Tuesdays or Alex Hall on Fridays, 9-10 a.m., through Aug. 30.

If you really want results, come to both.

The cost is $15/session, and a six-class pass is transferable between sessions.

Please call 604-535-0015 ext. 221 to register.

n Thanks so much to the Semiahmoo Rotary Club who sent a group of volunteers last month to rebuild our Stagehouse porch – which was definitely showing its age – and generously donated the materials as well.

The group spent two weekends working on the project, reminding us once again that a committed group of people can accomplish almost anything.

If you’re interested in family-focused service work, the Semiahmoo Rotary meets at 7 a.m. every Thursday morning over breakfast in the Rotary Fieldhouse by the South Surrey Rec Centre. You’re more than welcome to drop in and hear more about Rotary activities in our community.

n Alexandra Family Place Drop-In for parents with infants and toddlers is all about having fun together, discovering together, learning together, laughing together and making friends.

It’s a wonderful opportunity for you to connect with other parents and find information on local resources while your little ones explore and have fun.

Books of 10 tickets are available for $40. The drop-in is open Thursdays 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. over the summer, and Tuesdays and Thursdays, same hours, from September to June.

n Residential camps are in full swing. Camps have been running here since 1916, first for orphans from the Alexandra Orphanage, then for single moms and their children, and, in more recent years, for newcomers and adults with developmental disabilities.

Volunteers are always welcome to assist with our campers, who have special needs – if you are interested in sponsoring a camper or in volunteering, call 604-535-0015.
