Family, friends and colleagues of the late Bill Reid will be on hand in Cloverdale next week to honour his many contributions and service to the City of Surrey.

A former MLA, cabinet minister, Rotarian and Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce executive director, and 2013 Citizen of the Year, Reid was known as “Mr. Surrey” and the unofficial mayor of Cloverdale. He passed away last May, but his legacy will be honoured by the city he loved.

On May 15, mayor and councillors will hold an unveiling ceremony of the Bill Reid legacy project, which includes renaming a large outdoor venue in his honour – the Cloverdale Millennium Amphitheatre, which is where the ceremony will be held, starting at 2 p.m.

Surrey is also looking at renaming a street and commissioning a statue in Reid’s honour.
