[Vox News] Canada Day, Eh? Edition

With great pride and overactive saliva glands, we acknowledge you, our dear brethren and sistren of the massive land mass known as Canada. Your love for hockey, curling and beaver tails has been a world wide inspiration. Your popular agricultural exports of Sugar, Lumber and Steve Nash help us believe that we too can contribute great things to the world. But your decision to export the global evils of Nickleback, Celine Dion and Justin Bieber has completely compromised your credibility in having any consideration for your fellow human being. But on this Canada Day, we are willing to look past these unfortunate iniquities and share in a delightful bowl of Poutine while bellowing this song from the top of our lungs.

    O Canada!
    Our home and native land!
    True patriot love in all thy sons command.

    With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
    The True North strong and free!

    From far and wide,
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

    God keep our land glorious and free!
    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

    O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.


[ECC Update]

Again, we wanted to thank our community for their feedback in our ECC affirmation vote. We received overwhelming support from the Vox community that we should join ECC and continue down this path of partnership. The Nav Team will be coordinating with ECC as far as the logistics and will keep you posted on the next steps.

[Neighborhoods Resumes]

Friends, Romans, Countrymen, the time has come. This Sunday marks the kick off of Summer Neighborhoods, and if you’ve been privy to any Vox sponsored kick off event in the past, you know that this is a party that can’t be missed. Join us this Sunday for some delicious BBQ as we ring in a new season of Neighborhoods. For more information, or if you’d like to get plugged in to one of the Vox Neighborhoods, send us an email and we’ll hook you right up!

[Relationship Status: Available]

No, Vox isn’t on the prowl for a date, nor are we trying to solicit help in matchmaking. We are, however wanting to let you all know that one of the Vox houses on the East Side is available to anyone who may be interested in moving into the neighborhood. This house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and lots of character. If you are looking for a place to live and are interested in exploring the possibility of living on the East Side, send us an email and we’ll help you change your housing status from “it’s complicated” to “in a relationship with…”

[LiNK Film Viewing]

There will be a special interest film viewing sponsored by the organization LiNK (Liberty in North Korea) on Friday, July 9th at 7pm. This documentary is hosted by Lisa Ling, field correspondent for The Oprah Winfrey Show and sister of Laura Ling – one of the two American journalists recently detained in North Korea. It takes a look at what life is like inside North Korea. For more details on this event, check out the Facebook event.
