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, join us in the Museum to warm up and enjoy activities: 

  • Children can make “peaceful crafts,” such as 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.
  • View WWII documentary videos in the Museum’s theatre.
  • Attend a presentation of  "Soldier of the Horse" on the Canadian Cavalry with local author Robert Mackay. Visit Robert Mackay's blog.
  • 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. 

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

  • View wartime documents in our Reference Room.
  • Warm up with coffee and tea in the Multi-Purpose Room.
