Exciting month ahead at South Surrey rec centre

Numerous bus tours offered by South Surrey Rec Centre in November

Say “goodbye” to harvest time, pumpkin patches and Halloween fun, and “welcome” to our late-fall programs starting this month at the South Surrey Recreation Centre.

•The Enjoy Bus Tours have a couple of exciting November trips coming up, and there are a few seats still available.

The “Behind the Scenes” tour is on Wednesday, Nov. 9, where you can take part in this unique opportunity to tour a working television and radio facility.

The CBC studios are located in the heart of Downtown Vancouver and provide a fascinating insight into breaking news, television and radio production. You may even bump into your favourite local news personality!

The next stop on the tour is designed to give you an intimate look at where your NHL favourite players and world-class entertainers prepare for games and performances.

The Rogers Arena tour also includes a view from the luxurious hospitality suites and presentation in the comfortable seats of the Private Club section.

Finally, dine beachside at a true Vancouver landmark – the Sylvia Hotel – for a delicious three-course lunch. Register for course number 4261746 at a cost of $85 for a member or $90 for a non-member.

The Museum of Flight tour in Seattle, Wash. leaves on Wednesday, Nov. 30.

The Museum of Flight is one of the largest air and space museums in the world, attracting more than 400,000 visitors annually.

The museum’s collection includes more than 150 historically significant air and space craft boasting the largest archive collection on the West Coast.

The trip includes a private docent tour of the Great Gallery and Red Barn, free time at the museum and a buffet lunch at the Golden Corral in Marysville.

Register for course number 4261747 at a cost of $95 for members and $100 for non-members.

Our first-ever Christmas Craft and Art Fair, on Saturday, Nov. 12 features a full house with more than 85 vendors and artists.

Don’t miss this opportunity to shop for your Christmas presents early while also supporting local crafters and artisans.

You will also be giving back to your local food bank with your entrance fee of a loonie, toonie and/or a non-perishable food item.

A healthy lunch and snacks concession bar will offer a variety of hot and cold items throughout the 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. event and will be operated by our very own South Surrey 55+ Badminton members.

It will truly be an intergenerational, community spirited event.

• Try something new and fun with the Zumba 55+ registered program on Wednesdays, from 1-2 p.m.

Great music and great moves get you into cardio fitness and a great mood.

There is also an adult drop-in Zumba class on Tuesdays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. – give it a try.

Are you a grandparent looking for an activity to do with your grandchild aged two to five years old?

Try Kensington Prairie Community Centre’s drop-in preschool play day on Monday mornings 9:30-11:00 a.m. and enjoy a creative and engaging time with other parents/adults with children of similar ages.

It is never too early to book for our Breakfast with Santa, which is an extremely popular annual event for all family members.

Grandparents, parents and children enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast with all the trimmings and then a visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Elves and helpers help the children create beautiful crafts to take home and Santa always has a goodie bag for each child.

Space is limited, so sign up early.

Stay happy and fit through activity and see you at the centre.
