Experience a Part of Our Rich History
March 17 2020- news update
The effects of the COVID-19 corona-virus have shaken our world.
Measures are being taken globally that many of the younger members of our community have never seen. Some of our senior members however, have and survived, extraordinary actions in the past.
The conditions we find ourselves in these days due to COVID-19 includes fast changing adjustments to our daily lives. This is indeed a global event with many local consequences impacting the operation of public facilities.
The FVHRS Board of Directors has made the following changes to our 2020 schedule:
- The Annual General Meeting (AGM 2020) for the society has been postponed from mid-April to Saturday October 17 2020. This will be at the same venue, Valley View Reception Centre in Surrey at 1pm.
The Agenda and other AGM materials will be sent to members 14 days prior to the meeting.
- The Opening Day for our 2020 season has been changed from May 2nd to Saturday July 4th 2020. We intend to have both BCER 1225 and 1304 heritage interurban rail cars operating during this shortened season, alternating weekends on our Sullivan Excursion run.
- Our annual Volunteer Fair will now occur on the May 30 & 31 weekend at the Cloverdale Station starting at 10am to 3pm.
- The Volunteer Orientation for new volunteers will take place on Saturday June 13th at the Cloverdale Station at 10am.
Our regular weekly restoration and maintenance activities will continue with the volunteers at the Frank Horne Heritage Rail Discovery Centre.
We will be monitoring the situation and adjusting as conditions warrant.
Our EventBrite on-line booking system has been set up for the July and August period so you may book ahead for your journey in time on Surrey’s Heritage Railway.
We value the passion and effort of all our volunteers who strive to present this working example of life with the B.C. Electric Railway in the Fraser Valley.
