The press release encourages museum-goers to “bring a friend and enjoy a tour of our heritage buildings followed by tea and treats.”

There will also be special performances by The Re-enactors on June 7. The re-enactment group plays characters based on real citizens from the history of the Surrey.

“Attending the city’s major events, each of the historical characters has a poignant part in Surrey’s past,” notes an entry on “Portrayed by actors who do not break character, they are a troupe to behold.”

Both sessions are free, but participants must pre-register.

According to the government’s Office of the Seniors Advocate, B.C. Seniors’ Week “is a time to celebrate seniors and their many contributions – providing an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the integral part seniors play in communities across British Columbia.”

B.C. Seniors’ Week was first proclaimed in 2002 and takes place every year during the first week of June.
