Hard to believe that in many parts of the world slavery is still an everyday occurrence. Enter West Vancouver Mulgrave students Natasha Virani, Melissa Godin and Hannah Radford who, along with the Mulgrave Student Action Council, decided to do something to raise awareness of this issue as part of their school’s “Spirit Week” activities. Together, they held a special benefit concert at the school to raise money for the “Not for Sale” movement which helps victims of human trafficking after they have been rescued. Congratulations to all those involved. Also, since summer is right around the corner, it seems fitting to mention the arrival of The Bar Method West Vancouver. An opening night party held recently gave locals a chance to tour the new fitness facility that has everyone talking. Part ballet, part Pilates and part yoga, this nouveau workout helps shake off the pounds just in time for beach weather.
