Vancouver, BC – Written on October 30 – The German Canadian Care Home (GCCH) is delighted to extend a warm invitation to join them for their upcoming events in Vancouver for the months of November and December. As the holiday season approaches, they have two exciting “Outreach Program” activities planned to create a joyful and memorable experience for their residents, their families, and the broader community. Join them as they come together to celebrate their rich heritage and the warmth of the holiday season. On Saturday, November 25, 2023, at 2 pm, they will be screening the movie “Margarete Steiff,” which is based on the life of the German toymaker. The movie portrays her remarkable journey from a 10-year-old girl confined to a wheelchair to becoming one of the first and most successful creators of toy stuffed animals. Their second event is the annual Christmas Bazaar, scheduled for Saturday, December 9th at 2 pm.

The Society offers cultural events for German speaking seniors and residents, which are conducted in the German language. The community gathers twice a month, on Saturday afternoons at the German-Canadian Care Home. Events feature coffee and cake followed by a film, a speaker or a seasonal sing-along. Since their inception these events have been very well attended.

Ongoing donations to help the Society support and finance these events are much appreciated.  If you have any questions regarding this program or are interested in volunteering, please contact the Program Coordinator, Waltraud Custer at 604-713-6562 or In addition, the Outreach program includes a book exchange and a poetry club.
