My name is Pete, and I created this awesome Meetup group to bring the Joyce-Collingwood community together. I felt that there is a need for people living near the Joyce-Collingwood Skytrain Station to meet and get to know their neighbors through fun English conversation and playing the ukelele. People living in other areas of the Lower Mainland may also apply for membership. Joyce-Collingwood Skytrain Station is close to 29th Avenue Skytrain Station, Nanaimo Skytrain Station, Broadway-Commercial Skytrain Station, and Metrotown Skytrain Station.
THIS MEETUP GROUP IS PERFECT FOR VANCOUVER NEWCOMERS AND VISITORS.
