Main Street hub celebrated for cop and art history (St. Vincent's: Brock Fahrni)
It was a good day for two distinct Main Street crowds last Thursday.
At an event in the morning at the Roundhouse Community Centre in Yaletown and at another in the evening at the Satellite Gallery on Seymour Street, retired cops, veterans and artists were honoured for two very different reasons: policing and art.
The club contributes to housing in the Downtown Eastside for veterans and other residents. It also supports the George Derby Centre and Brock Fahrni Centre, which are residential facilities for veterans.
