Event Details

For nearly fifty years, the Surrey Historical Society has been listening to and sharing Surrey’s stories. To enhance this engagement with the community’s rich historical heritage, the Surrey Historical Society will sponsor a series of six MEMORY SOCIALS throughout the City.

 These sessions are to share the oral and written history of our pioneers and to invite more memories from friends and descendants. The Surrey Historical Society is grateful to the City of Surrey and its Cultural Grants Program which has enabled the society to pursue this important project.

The Surrey Historical Society has long recognized the contributions, memories and stories of its pioneers could be lost as these people move away from our community, or pass on. The Surrey Historical Society knows how important social engagement and appreciation for lives well-lived enhances the quality of life for all. YOUR STORIES AND MEMORIES will contribute greatly to Surrey’s cultural and historical heritage.

The Surrey Historical Society is proud to be in a position to record the history of our remarkable City. The Society maintains a website at www.surreyhistory.ca and a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/surreyhistoricalsociety.   We also contribute local history articles to our newspapers, conduct walking tours, collaborate with other heritage groups and are strong advocates for historical preservation of archival documents, buildings and educational opportunities. The Surrey Historical Society enjoys a good working relationship with the City, and works closely with the Surrey Archives and the Museum of Surrey.

Please feel free to bring photos, letters, and artifacts to enhance the exchange of memories. We will have on-site professional archivists and historians to assist at each of the events.

The next of these sessions will take place on:

Saturday, March 23 from 12:00pm to 3:00pm at

Ocean Park Community Centre

A light lunch will be provided.
