The magic of Cirque du Soleil returns to Vancouver in spring 2014 with its show Totem, described as “a fascinating journey into the evolution of mankind”.
We’re pleased to announce that Cirque du Soleil has once again chosen to partner with Covenant House, donating tickets for fundraising purposes.
Now they are going bigger and increasing their goal. They currently have 1001 Facebook likes; if (when) they get to 1,500 likes they will increase their donation to $1,500. So, to help them reach 1500 likes we are asking our supporters to like Houston Landscapes' Facebook page (A local company from N. Van).
In Flanders Fields
By: Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, MD (1872-1918), Canadian Army
IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies grow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
