Surrey remembers

The Surrey Museum and Surrey Archives will host the annual Surrey Remembers event, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Nov. 11.

The Surrey Museum and Surrey Archives will be open to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, for the annual Surrey Remembers event.

Citizens are invited to bring their families to the Remembrance Day service at the Cloverdale cenotaph in the Surrey Museum Plaza, then come in from the cold to the museum or archives and take part in activities.

Families can make crafts to commemorate the day, view Second World War documentaries in the museum’s theatre or take a moment to fill out a postcard of thanks that will be delivered to Lower Mainland veterans and their families.

Other activities include weaving loom demonstrations – including those used to rehabilitate veterans.

At the Surrey Archives, guests may view wartime newspapers, documents, photographs and a slideshow on Surrey’s participation in the world wars, and listen to the Veterans’ Oral History Collection.

Admission is by donation.

The Surrey Museum is located at 17710 56A Ave. For more information, call 604-592-6956 or visit www.surrey.ca/heritage
