June 2020 Howl
Happy Pride Month!
Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in-person events remain postponed. Despite the pandemic, we have virtual events planned to allow you to show your pride while remaining physically distant!
As always when out-and-about, keep your distance from others and paws clean so that we can all remain healthy and get back to normal soon!
VAN-PAH Virtual Social
Come on out for a social evening online with everyone from our puppy and pet community. Wear your leather, rubber, fuzzy, or whatever other gear you want. Of course gear is admired but never required. Having fun is the only requirement.
Meeting ID: 831 1163 5665
Conference Call Etiquette Applies. Please mute your mic when not speaking or to lessen background noise!
VAN-PAH Virtual Mosh
Put on your gear and wag your tail for the webcam! We’re hosting a virtual mosh to close the social distances during these hard times.
Meeting ID: 837 1207 4419
Conference call etiquette applies. Gear is allowed, but no nudity like a public mosh. Please mute your mic when not speaking or to lessen background noise. Some functions may require the raise hand feature to participate.
Shadow Falls Camping Postponed
Unfortunately the annual Shadow Falls camping trip is postponed until further notice. Despite this, we are encouraging small, member driven camping trips to fill the void. For more information on the campground, see the website here: Shadow Falls.
Vancouver Pride 2020
For the safety of all, the Vancouver Pride Society has decided to transition this year’s Pride celebrations to a virtual event. We have not yet received any details on what events are planned or how we can participate, but we hope to still have a wagging good time showing off our Pride in our community! We’ll keep you posted.
