Photographs and other historical documents will be emailed or mailed to participants in preparation for the program. This program generally focuses on the history of Surrey, but also covers a wide range of interesting topics relating to the history of the lower mainland. If you're interested in discussing memories of local history, this program will be interesting to you. This program is run remotely, and you can participate from the comfort of your home! This is a telephone only program. There is no online conferencing component. Pre-registration with a valid address for mailing, or email , for content is required at the link provided. This program is run through a collaboration between the City of Surrey and Seniors Come Share Society. Testimonials: "It's been enlightening to see how Surrey and White Rock have progressed over the years." - Jeanette "I love it. Pierce makes it come so alive… I didn't think I'd like history at the beginning but its like bringing a museum to life." - Patricia "It just kind of keeps us in touch with things out there. It prevents the heritage from being forgotten and its nice to find out more about the different neighbourhoods you don't know about." - Janice "It's great when you hear someone say, 'Oh yeah, I remember that!' and other people sharing the same memory too."
This event is free.
The City of Surrey Heritage Services Department runs various parts of Heritage within the City of Surrey, including Heritage Collections, the Surrey Archives, the Re-enactors, and the Historic Stewart Farm. The mandate of our division is to share the diverse history of the Municipality of Surrey with our community. Our vision is to create a better community that reflects on the past. Recently as part of our shift towards online programming these institutions have begun to focus on digital and remote programming, instead of in person interpretation. This program is loosely based off of our regular talks held with the public monthly.
