It builds character...
I'm proud to be a Surrey guy - it wasn't 'always' as bad as the jokes made it out to be.
I remember when Frank Hurt opened. We had shifts are our school, Newton Jr to accommodate the FH kids until their damned school was built - didn't it start out as an experiment / alternate type school?
Rootin' Tootin' Newton! I was supposed to go there because I lived in Panorama Ridge, but went to FH for the gymnastics training at 5:30am until school time started.
Frank Hurt was a school that accommodated kids with physical handicaps because it had an elevator. If I recall our valedictorian ended up representing Canada in the Para-Olympics in swimming.
The badge "Surrey Girl" is way worse than what the guys get tagged with. You guys were just considered skids, apparently all Surrey girls worked a corner on King George near 104 ave
I lived on the Ridge, my neighbour had a Rolls Royce and the other was a pilot, (we drove a Cutlass and a Bronco at that time) and we had 1/2 acre of property. I don't think I really 'fit' the Surrey girl stereotype, but it's a funny one whenever I bring up I went to school out that way. Surrey was as diverse as it gets back in those days. We weren't all skids hanging out at the Whalley Exchange looking to score some rock
