Unveiling of Cenotaph on grounds of Surrey Municipal Hall

Nov. 11: Surrey Remembers

The Surrey Museum and the Surrey Archives open their doors on Remembrance Day for special programming and activities.

Surrey residents and their families are invited to the Surrey Museum and the Surrey Archives on Remembrance Day, before and after the service at the Cloverdale Cenotaph.

Both buildings flank Surrey Museum Plaza, site of Surrey’s largest Remembrance Day service and are open to the public on Nov. 11 for Surrey Remembers, an annual day of special programming, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

• Inside the Surrey Museum (17710 56A Avenue), children can make peaceful crafts such as tissue paper poppies, thankful artwork, or write thank you cards that will be delivered to Lower Mainland veterans and their families.

• View WWII documentary videos in the Museum’s theatre.

• Enjoy tunes from the Hazelmere Heritage Fiddlers.

• Watch demonstrations of weaving and spinning in the Textile Studio. See a heritage loom used to rehabilitate veterans and try your hand at weaving on the Museum’s table loom.

• Warm up with hot chocolate and cookies.

• Attend a presentation of B.C.’s Home Front with local author Sylvia Crooks.

Join us in the Archives across the plaza for these activities: View wartime documents in our reference room, and warm up with coffee and tea in the multipurpose room.

On Nov. 15, the Surrey Archives hosts Surrey: 1914-1918. It’s a more detailed look at Surrey during the years of the First World War. Also, from Nov. 4 to 15, the Surrey Archives hosts Duty, Honour & Izzat, an exhibit outlining the story of 500,000 Punjabis who fought alongside Canadians in the First World War.
