THE HUMAN LIBRARY
Century House and the New Westminster Museum and Archives are once again putting on a Human Library at the Anvil Centre in the fall 2016. We are looking for seniors who have had a war or conﬂict experience that they could share with the community through the telling of their story in a human library format. Training would be provided. Some of these experiences could be Holocaust survivor, veteran, child, Japanese internment camp, refugee, air raid patrol, war effort factory worker, mother, doctor or other experiences. If you are interested in participating, please leave your name at the Century House ofﬁce or at the New Westminster Museum at Anvil Centre.

REDWOOD PARK AND MORGAN CREEK
(Bonsor Mini Bus)
Redwood Park is a 45 hectare forested area in South Surrey, the legacy of twins David and Peter Brown. They lived on the property and traveled the world searching for seeds and saplings of exotic species of tree, then planting them on the property. There are now upwards of 50 different tree species including English Walnut, Chinese Chestnut, European Beech and Giant Sequoia, the largest tree on earth. While there you will have time to wander along the trails, check out all the diverse trees, and even take a look at a treehouse. From there you will be off to Morgan Creek Golf Course for a fabulous three course lunch with a view of the fairways and greens. Lunch included.
Tuesday, September 6, 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
