'Mr. Surrey' honoured with venue, sign in Cloverdale
Bill Reid loved his city. And now Surrey has shown one of the city's biggest boosters a little love in return.
On Thursday (May 15), mayor and council unveiled the sign for the Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre – formerly called the Cloverdale Millennium Amphitheatre, as well as calling 62 Avenue Bill Reid Way.
Reid, who passed away last year at the age of 78, was a former MLA, cabinet minister, Rotarian and was highly involved with local business groups.
He was named Surrey's Good Citizen of the Year in 2013 and was considered the unofficial mayor of Cloverdale for his tireless contribution.
There is also a statue of him being commissioned.
