Gone but not forgotten
The sun came out, as if on cue, as family, friends and colleagues turned out May 15 for the dedication of two City of Surrey tributes to Bill Reid (pictured above is Marion Reid, centre, and their daughters Cathy Stroppa, Gail Sullivan, Laurie Reid and Sheila Faulkner).
Reid, a former MLA, cabinet minister and executive director of the Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce, and 2013 Surrey Citizen of the Year passed away last year at 78.
Mayor Dianne Watts said the renaming of the Cloverdale Amphitheatre and 62 Avenue as Bill Reid Way recognize Reid’s 50 years of public service to Surrey. A statue is also being commissioned.
