Our annual barbecue is a great way to meet our members, introduce new people and learn more about how WVHS celebrates our community’s history. Join us for burgers, hotdogs and great conversation. The event is courtesy of WVHS, although donations are appreciated.
The event is held at the West Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club, which itself has a rich history. Organized lawn bowling games were established in West Vancouver long before World War I on tennis greens located near the Navvy Jack Thomas house. Charles Nelson (West Vancouver’s first Reeve) built a private green on his residential property as Sunday play was forbidden on the District’s property. In June 1931, the Men’s Club built a green in the area south of the original West Vancouver United Church. They added a clubhouse in 1934. This was later expanded in the 1980s, and the green was repaired and restored. Today the Club hosts many tournaments and charity events.
