ALEX HOUSE: Alexandra Festival next month

Annual family-friendly event set for May 30 in Crescent Beach.

If you like to get out, meet new friends and see the sights, join us for our final three out-trips this season.

We visit the Vancouver Zoo on April 27, take a carriage ride through Stanley Park on May 25 and finish with our popular winery tour on June 29. We leave at 1 p.m. and return about 5 p.m. Cost is $5 plus admission fees. For registration, call 604-535-0015, or email

Parenting youth ages seven to 18 can be challenging.

Our Positively Parenting workshops can help with some of the most common issues. The last workshop in the series is ‘We Have a Problem…’, coming up May 6, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the South Surrey Rec Centre.

Cost is $10. (Need help with fees? Just ask.)

Call 604-538-5060 ext. 24 or e-mail

The series will start again in September.

Everyone is welcome at our community lunch the second Wednesday of the month until June from noon to 2 p.m.

Coming up May 13, Cinco de Mayo. Email or register online at by May 8.

On May 30, bring your family and friends to Alex House for the 41st annual Alexandra Festival.

It’s a great day of non-stop entertainment on an outdoor stage, family fun and an opportunity to do your Christmas shopping really, really early from the many artists and crafters on-site. Call 604-535-0015 for information or visit our website.

The festival is an important community event and we can’t do it without you. Volunteer opportunities include helping with loading and unloading, directing traffic and parking, helping with food service, providing information, grounds-keeping and helping with children’s activities.

We need a minimum 2.5-hour commitment and volunteers are required to attend a one-hour orientation session either May 20, 1 to 2 p.m. or May 21, 7 to 8 p.m.

Sign up online at with confirmation by email.
