Here’s an excerpt from an great Interview the Surrey Now-Leader did with Museum of Surrey Manager Lynn Saffery on the grand reopening (I’ll be attending!):
Q: What do you anticipate the museum will add to Surrey, and the historic Cloverdale town centre?
A: The Museum of Surrey tells the stories of people beginning with the Coast Salish nations who have lived here from time immemorial, to the contemporary international people who immigrated to Canada and chose to make Surrey their home. Surrey is proudly diverse, inclusive and unique.
I’m excited for Cloverdale and it’s amazing residents. The museum, Fraser Valley Heritage Railway, Surrey Archives, Cloverdale Library, and much more, strengthen this vibrant walkable town centre.
All these unique initiatives are supported by experts and volunteers passionate about their work. Cloverdale is now a heritage and cultural destination for tourists and residents. It has unlimited potential.
