Kerrisdale Playbook

The KERRISDALE Playbook is a site hosted by the Kerrisdale Community Centre Society (KCCS) for community partners and residents to connect and share the Kerrisdale experience.

The KERRISDALE Playbook will help viewers discover the best-kept secrets in Kerrisdale and generate discussions on recreation, health and wellness, and other issues which may impact Kerrisdale’s being a vibrant and caring community.

Editor-in-chief is Keiko Honda, and I’ve contributed the following articles:
