New South Surrey festival set to launch

We are excitedly planning our first annual South Surrey Festival at Kwomais Point Park on Saturday, June 18, where our community will enjoy an amazing day of activities and entertainment for all ages.

Non-stop entertainment and live music on the main outdoor stage between 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.; a full afternoon of kids and family activities. including all the old-fashioned games we love and remember from our school days; artisans of all types will be display their talents in Sanford Hall; and the Lodge will be set up as a place to relax with musicians and refreshments.

Thrifty’s has donated the food for a barbecue in the park.

For more, contact the South Surrey Recreation Centre at 604-592-6970.

Our Intergenerational Therapeutic Garden is in great transition.

By the beginning of July, all of our work to upgrade some of the gardens and to complete the sharing circle will be complete.

Public access will be limited, for safety reasons, until the heavy work is done, but it will be worth the wait.

Plants and herbs will be in the dirt, children’s benches will be installed and tables and chairs will be in place.

Are you interested in local Vancouver history?

Try our “Nooks & Crannies of West Vancouver” Enjoy Bus Tour happening on Thursday, June 9 and led by historian John Rogers.

The registration number is 4242294, and the trip includes lunch at Troll’s Restaurant in Horseshoe Bay.

Celebrate Senior’s Week with us from June 5 to 11.

We have some wonderful free activities just for seniors June 6-9.  Pick up a handbill at our front counter and try some activities.

Our next community Coffee and Connect bus tour is Tuesday, June 14, and will take the group to visit the Heritage Stewart Farm House for a tour.

Our Coffee and Connect bus tours are a partnership between the City of Surrey and the Semiahmoo Seniors’ Planning Table (hosted by Sources).

This tour will be the last tour for the summer so if you are interested in fun day touring our community please contact the Sources office at 604-531-6226.

Terri Focker, a community service assistant for the City of Surrey, writes monthly on seniors activities.
