Welcome to Southeast Vancouver
Seniors' Arts & Cultural Society

Southeast Vancouver Seniors' Arts & Cultural Society (SVSACS) is a group of dedicated individuals working to have a seniors' centre built in southeast Vancouver. The centre would house various arts and cultural activities for seniors, serving as a meeting and gathering place for older adults of all ethnic backgrounds. There is currently no seniors centre in all of southeast Van!

The number of seniors (55 and over) living in the Victoria-Fraserview/Killarney (VFK) has been growing faster than in all other areas of Vancouver. In 2006 there were 15,000 seniors in VFK. That number is expected to increase by 21 per cent (3,100) by 2021.

The Memorial Service to honour Keith Jacobson will be held on Sunday, July 3rd at 3 p.m. in the Gymnasium at Killarney Community Centre. The family has asked for donations to the Cancer Foundation in Keith's name to support the research and express their thanks for the care given to Keith over five years of treatment. Donations can be made on-line at bccancerfoundation.com

"The Boat That Rocked" is an ensemble comedy in which the romance takes place between the young people of the '60s and pop music. It's about a band of rogue DJs that captivated Britain, playing the music that defined a generation and standing up to a government that wanted classical music, and nothing else, on the airwaves. The Count, a big, brash, American god of the airwaves; Quentin, the boss of Radio Rock — a pirate radio station in the middle of the North Sea that's populated by an eclectic crew of rock and roll DJs; Gavin, the greatest DJ in Britain who has just returned from his drug tour of America to reclaim his rightful position; Dave, an ironic, intelligent and cruelly funny co-broadcaster; and a fearsome British government official out for blood against the drug takers and lawbreakers of a once-great nation…
