Foodrazer Success

On Saturday, July 25, Ryley Patterson, 5 and her best friend Chloe Gravel-Fallis, 3, held a Foodrazer for the Surrey Food Bank in the parking lot at the A & W on 102 Avenue in Surrey.

The girls had planned a variety of games and Dr. Wilson, their friend from Phoenix Society whose volunteer Red Shirts were there to help, came out and won a ribbon by putting a puzzle together. He also joined them in a Zumba Dance.

“It’s so important to support youth that have such a passion,” said Michael Wilson.

Their policeman friend, Josh Waltman attended with his daughter, Norah, 2.

“We wouldn’t miss it,” said Josh. “Norah loves playing with Chloe and Ryley.”

Children who stopped by participated in the duck pond game, the sucker pull and the ping pong ball in a glass game to win prizes. They also got to make some crafts and have their faces painted, all activities planned by Ryley and Chloe.

But it wasn’t all about Fun & Games. There was lots of information about safety and people were invited to stop by to drop off their old car seats so they wouldn’t be left by the side of the road. Over 30 car seats were collected and prepared for recycling.

The girls raised over $220 and 400 pounds of food for the Surrey Food Bank.

Ryley and Chloe’s Safety Foodrazer

Have you seen old car seats left by the side of the road? Ryley (5) and Chloe (3) have and they want to do something about it. “Kids should be safe,” says Ryley. Car seats have an expiry date and should be retired if involved in an accident. Using car seats left by the side of the road is not a safe practice.

The two little girls have arranged to recycle old car seats as part of their Fun and Games Foodrazer on Saturday, July 25 from 11am-2pm at the parking lot by A&W on 102 Avenue and Whalley Blvd.

“There will be fun. There will be games. There will be singing and dancing,” says Ryley. “And the firemen will come and teach us about Fire Safety.”

The RCMP will also be attending.

So plan drop off the old car seats that have been collecting dust in your garage. A donation to the Surrey Food Bank would be appreciated.

Long Long Table: Canada Coast to Coast

As technology becomes smarter and allows us to connect so much more thoroughly to those around the world, it often disconnects individuals from their immediate environments, experiences, and social connections. It is often difficult to reconnect in an increasingly disconnected world. That is why the Downtown Surrey BIA is proud to host The Long, Long Table for a second year on June 23rd, 2015.

The Long, Long Table aims to build community and regain connection by inviting people who work, live, and learn in Downtown Surrey to share a meal together at City Hall Plaza. This year, 250 guests will be enjoying a 5-course meal inspired by our theme: Canada Coast to Coast. Their taste buds will be tickled by the smoky grilled steak, savoury cheese course, and freshly baked donut holes. To complement the Canadian-style dishes, live music from local artists will be featured as guests enjoy their meal.

This event begins with a networking portion from 5pm-6pm at City Hall, followed by dinner at 6:15pm at the City Hall Plaza. Tickets are $35 plus tax and are available at the Downtown Surrey BIA office located at Suite 330-10362 King George Blvd. The office hours are Monday to Friday 9:30am-5pm, if you cannot make it at these times but would like to buy a ticket, email info@downtownsurreybia.com.

On Tuesday June 23rd, come reconnect with us; rediscover community and develop relationships with your Downtown Surrey neighbors through the sharing of a meal and entertainment. And wear RED to show your Canadian Spirit.
