WTS – What the Surrey? #4

Comments 8 by Rebecca Bollwitt

I’m a bit late with today’s WTS but here it is all the same. I’ll start it out a little differently with some quick news feeds about this week’s happenings in Surrey, BC.

  • Surrey takes part in “Turn it Off” tomorrow, May 16th [The Now]
  • British Columbians are asked to turn off and unplug all non-essential lights, fixtures and other electrical devices as part of the first-ever province-wide initiative to promote energy conservation.

    In addition to individual efforts, landmarks such as the legislature, Lion’s Gate Bridge and the PNE will have their lights off and restaurants around the Lower Mainland will hold candlelight dinners to conserve energy.

  • 61st Annual Cloverdale Rodeo this week [The Now]
  • Auto Theft Drops 38% [Surrey Leader]
  • Surrey Nudists have gone to court [CKNW]
  • and in case you missed it…

  • NEW Crime Reduction Meth Guide [City of Surrey]
  • With the weather being bright and warm as of late, I find myself daydreaming of the beach. John and I had some great times at Third last summer and are anticipating even more over the next few months. This week’s question – Can you give the name of two beaches in Surrey?

      Crescent Beach and White Rock Beach… East Beach? The part where the Indian Reserve is where we all take our dogs… The Dog Beach?

      Although “crack” is close Buzz… White Rock is also not “technically” Surrey :-p I’ll accept Crescent Beach and surrounding beaches including but not limited to, Blackie Spit. The photo above is from this site, GreaterVancouverParks tons of great places for a walk, picnic and sandcastle-building!

      Do the beaches along the Fraser Count? What about the beach at Newton Wave Pool? Then there’s that dude on 134th Street who dumped truckloads of sand on his front lawn so he could wear his hilarious bikini inspector t-shirt.

      **I did not mean to sound condescending in my last comment, my nature is generally far from it and I was just being silly playing gameshow host – thank you to everyone who supplied an answer and as usual, I’m the one who becomes even more educated about surrounding cities when we play this game – DaveO is classic for learnin’ me a few things 🙂 **

      […] all non-essential lights. This will be taking place at 8:00pm on March 29, 2008 and reminds me of “Turn it Off” that I blogged about last year, it was quite the sight to see a very dark Lions Gate […]
