A new home, with room to grow

HSA REPORT, DECEMBER 2014

By Val Avery, President

HSA's first office was a little place on Kingsway.

As the number of members grew steadily, so did the need to find new space. We soon moved to an office on Hastings at Boundary, staying there until 1994, when we moved to Metrotown. Only a few years later, in 1998, we moved to the offices many of you know on Joyce Street.

Now, it's time to move again.

HSA is moving
