Langley Speedway Cruise In

The staff here at Jellybean AutoCrafters is excited to announce that we have finally received our permit to host our 17th annual Canada d’EH Celebration and Car Show at Langley Speedway, July 1st.

The gate opens at 8am and the show starts at 9am.

Several Food Trucks and “Caffeinated by Bubba” will be on site, serving up some great drinks and food.

We have spectator parking in the upper lot and display parking on the track itself.

We’ll do one parade lap around the track as you enter, so bring a cool car and enjoy the day, celebrating the greatness of Canada in a unique way with friends.

The event poster is attached to this email, so feel free to pass this email/invite on to anyone who you think may be interested in this event.

Please note, this is the only car related event at Langley Speedway this year, unfortunately all others were turned down.

The reason we received the go-ahead is because of the excellent, long-standing relationship we have with the Parks Board, so we kindly ask that participants refrain from doing burnouts or any other type of questionable driving on site, and the streets around it.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

Thank you visit our website for more info

DOG WALKERS URGENTLY NEEDED - White Rock/South Surrey

We are in critical need of more dog walkers/ dog carers for seniors who have pets, in all areas including but not limited to Maple Ridge/ Pitt Meadows, Surrey, Langley White Rock Delta, Vancouver and North Vancouver areas.

Unfortunately our available volunteers to walk dogs is so low we are struggling to meet current client needs.

Volunteers who take on the role of Dog Walkers/ Dog Carers assist Senior clients and their dogs by providing walks, light grooming, feeding, providing medication, and on occasion, transportation veterinarian or professional groomer appointments.

All volunteers are required to obtain a police background check as this position is in direct contact with Seniors. Each volunteer is matched to a dog and client that is best suited for each other. Time commitments are entirely flexible and will revolve around the volunteers schedule.

***All Public health orders are respected, as well as the comfort level of Clients and volunteers***

If you are interested in learning more about this position, please send us an email at elderdogvancouverldr@gmail.com.

Volunteering for our non-profit organization is a rewarding experience, helping out animals and senior citizens in our community.

We need you, and the Seniors and Pets appreciate you!

I wanted to introduce you to my new business that I will be launching in May.

It will consist of local wine or beer/whisky tours in my ‘67 VW bus. I will also be offering “Welcome to the Neighborhood” tours which will highlight many of our local gems. Which I think will be a great gift idea for our realtors. My VW also has a little sister, called Brooke. She is a 1974 Boler trailer that I have converted into a mobile bar. With events and weddings opening back up, we are beyond excited to get her back out onto the road. Here are few pictures from last year. I have also attached my website for a more detailed idea of what we offer.
