Leaves disappear from branches, lapels sport poppies, and we cruise into the holiday season with returning festivals and craft markets around the region. This November I invite readers to join me in celebrating 10 years of Miss604 at my anniversary party on November 13th. Two days later, I encourage everyone to vote on Election Day in Vancouver. The full event list for the month is below and if you have anything to add, send details my way at any time as the list is updated every day.
