Christmas at Mattick's Farm - Pick up your copy of the Boulevard Magazine.



The fun of the holidays is right around the corner: family gatherings to plan, delicious meals to prepare, gifts to find and a house/condo or apartment to decorate — the list goes on.


With entertaining season approaching at warp speed, it’s time to get your home spruced up. Your time is precious around the holiday season, so to help make the most of your time, try these easy solutions to prepare for the holidays while keeping your sanity.
Festive lights: A simple way to decorate for the holidays year after year is with an artificial tree. For a formal dinner event, glowing white light sets a perfect ambiance. Switch to the multi-color option to delight the kids.
A touch of cheer: Use holiday decorations in unexpected ways to add festive cheer in every room of your home with minimal effort. Try hanging ornaments to decorate live plants, light fixtures, doorway overhangs, stairwells, mirrors and even the mantel.
Among the pines: Potted evergreen plants decorated with lights bring plenty of festive feelings into a room. The best news is that when spring arrives, you can plant them outside in your backyard, or donate them to a community project that needs evergreen trees. Using live plants infuses the room with light and good, clean oxygen, and it's the subtle touches your guests will appreciate and remember.
With these timely tips, you — and your home — will be ready for a holiday season of celebrations.

'I See Hope'

 Victoria International Development Education Agency (VIDEA) was established as a non-profit organization in 1977 to 'inspire thought and action on global issues and is one of Canada's oldest education centres. Their promotion and delivery of global education is enhanced through establishing agency contracts with global partners, such as the Ukulapha community outreach project in South Africa. As an agency of the registered, non profit agency, VIDEA the project is continually monitored and evaluated and they are an integral part of supporting this international program.
Quietly but with direct and immediate results,

 Ukulapha is reviving the philosophy of Ubuntu ('we are who we are because of who we all came from'). Ukulapha stands out as a grassroots, organic and humanitarian community outreach project in one of the poorest townships in South Africa.

The manager and founder, Carolyn Burns, is a former Victoria resident of 25 years. The outreach project is building a sense of hope with a focus on education! The needs are great, but the continued focus on enhancing educational opportunities is paying off! A new Resource Centre has been built with a library and computer lab. Now, the children will gain skills required to take their place in a fast changing world. The difficult task of rebuilding lives and taking responsibility for their new tomorrow has begun. Carolyn's passion and integrity to provide educational assistance to the children of Slangspruit is remarkable.

Ukulapha, with the support of VIDEA, is truly creating 'community connections for global change'.
