Newcomers and long-time residents of Surrey are invited to get to know their neighbours this Saturday when the Surrey Museum hosts its annual Cultural Connections open house.
It’s a chance to discover the stories of Surrey’s immigrants, to ask them about their journeys to Surrey. The event runs from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Nov. 23. There will be presentations in the theatre by partner groups such as Malalay, a local women’s co-operative that provides career development for Afghan refugees.
There will be handmade crafts for sale, along with local organizations such as First Stripes Early Childhood Development, and and representatives from several Grandmothers to Grandmothers groups.
The museum is located at 17710 56A Avenue. For more, visit www.surrey.ca/heritage or call 604-592-6956.
