Three Things to Do This Week (Surrey and Delta, for Sept. 10)

Surrey Archives kicks off another fall lecture series this Saturday morning

The “BodyBreak” duo of Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod are in Surrey for a Diabetes Expo this Saturday

1. Deepen your knowledge of Surrey’s heritage at one of Surrey Archives’ fall lectures, a series that gets going this Saturday morning (Sept. 12) with a “Then/Now” look at 130 years of changes in the city. Archival images and stories told by both presents and audience members will help Surrey’s past come alive at the hour-long event, from 11 a.m. to noon at 17671 56th Ave., Cloverdale. The fee to attend is $10; pre-register by calling 604-502-6459. Other sessions in the three-event series are “A Visual History of North Surrey” on Oct. 10 and “War Veterans’ Stories” on Nov. 14. More series details are posted online at Surrey.ca/heritage.

2. Bell Performing Arts Centre is the first stop on a national tour for a Diabetes Expo organized by the Canadian Diabetes Association. The afternoon gathering this Saturday (Sept. 12) is billed as an empowering education event for people living with diabetes. “These events will offer incredible opportunities to learn about diabetes self-management while connecting and motivating people living with diabetes. And they’re free,” event organizers say. Special guests at the Surrey event are Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod, whose “BodyBreak” segment on television has encouraged Canadians to live a more healthy, active lifestyle for close to a quarter century. For all the details, including event hours and other attractions, visit Diabetes.ca/expo.

3. Cloverdale’s Stetson Bowl should have been grooving during the inaugural B.C. Reggae Festival on Saturday (Sept. 12), with Luciano, Warrior King, Beres Brown and other performers hitting the stage, but as of Wednesday, the event has been denied a permit by the city, for lack of detailed security and medical plans. Instead, festival ticket-holders will have to crank the Marley at home. As the man sang, “Don’t worry about a thing, ‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.”
