For eight years thereâ€™s been a small community group based in McBurney Plaza that has provided a friendly place to stop in at and meet other members of the community.
Youâ€™ve Gotta Have Friends is now celebrating its eighth anniversary with a gathering Sept. 19 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The non-profit is dedicated to fostering inclusiveness of people of any ability. The group has gone out in the community and handed out flowers as an act of kindness, and most recently, created the Kindness Connect campaign.
Stop by 20510 Fraser Hwy. (McBurney Lane) this Friday.
South Langley will see an odd assortment of people in costume this Sunday for the Campbell Valley Wine Run. The scenic 15 kilometre run goes from High Point Equestrian Estates through Campbell Valley trails to various local wineries.

Thereâ€™s post-run entertainment and catering by Well-Seasoned. Taking part are Vista Dâ€™oro, Backyard Vineyeards, Township 7 and Domain De Chaberton.
Thereâ€™s also wine prizes for the best constumed individual, best costumed team, and best surviving costume.

The run, not a race (no timing is done), starts at 9 a.m.

Since itâ€™s from Agatha Christie, thereâ€™s a murder involved.
The play is set in 1950s Britain and takes place in the Great Hall of Monkswell Manor, a country guesthouse run by a young couple. The play opens with a murder and ends with a plot twist characteristic of Christieâ€™s whodunits.
