Surrey Remembers

November 11, 2016


Surrey Remembers at the Surrey Museum and Surrey Archives

Bring your family to take part in the annual Remembrance Day ceremony at the Cloverdale Cenotaph next door to the Surrey Museum and the Surrey Archives.

After the ceremony, come in to the Museum to warm up and enjoy activities:

  • Children can make “peaceful crafts,” like tissue paper poppies and thankful artwork, to commemorate the day.
  • Write thank you notes on postcards that will be delivered to Lower Mainland veterans and their families.
  • Set the kids loose in the fully interactive Kids Gallery to explore sustainability from a child's point of view. View WWII documentary videos in the Museum’s theatre.
  • 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 beverages and cookies.
  • 11:30am to 12:30pm: Canadian Sikhs in World War I - Join Surrey’s Poet Laureate, Renee Sarojini Saklikar, and Sharanjit Sandhra of the Centre for Indo Canadian Studies as they bring the contribution of Canadian Sikhs in World War 1 to life in this unique talk and performance. By donation

Join us in the Archives across the plaza for these activities:

  • View wartime newspapers, documents and photographs.
  • Hear true stories of wartime shared by Surrey veterans in a slideshow.
  • Family activities, including crafts and puzzles.
