Hi there!

I hope you have had a great summer and are ready for something different to start off the fall season.

The Downtown Surrey BIA has cooked up another event and we want YOU to get a taste of it-literally! On Tuesday, September 9th the DSBIA will be hosting a new event, The Long Long Table: A Community Affair.


The Long, Long Table is a unique event that invites 500 people who live, work, and learn in Surrey to sit at the same dinner table and share a five course meal together. Here, citizens who would not normally

interact with one another find themselves sharing experiences and getting to know one another, making it a “friendraiser” rather than a fundraiser.

On September 9th, sit at the elegantly decorated long, long table and get to know those around you. All guests will be served a delicious international five-course meal. Each of the five courses is inspired

by flavours of a different country, offering everything from steaming samosas to refreshing blueberry pies.

The Long, Long Table will be held at the new City Hall Plaza (13450 104 Avenue) on September 9th. It will begin with a networking portion at 4:30pm with dinner being served at 5:45pm.


Tickets are available online at  They can also be purchased for cash only, at the Downtown Surrey BIA office located at Suite 330-10362 King George Blvd. Tickets are available for only $35 plus GST. Or, if you are planning to buy tickets for your whole staff or organization, we would be happy to invoice you – just send me an email as soon as possible.

This September bring your friends, family, co-workers  and neighbours to the The Long, Long Table.

Please pass this on to all your contacts.

We would like to thank all the sponsors who have made this event possible. We are still looking for additional sponsors – please feel free to contact me for further information.

 We look forward to seeing you on September 9th.

Community Events / SFU City of Surrey Transportation Lecture Series Registration Info.
« Last post by Mark on August 11, 2014, 05:20:26 PM »
Hello BHCA members,
    Wayne and I took this course two years ago, and found it to be very informative and useful, as you become aware of how the CoS, Translink, Metro Van, and other jurisdictions negotiate the challenges of providing funding and capital infrastructure for transportation and transit projects in the Lower Mainland. Meetings are held at City Centre Library. Well worth the time, and would beneficial to keep BHCA prominent at City Hall.

Fitzgerald, Megan <>
