Surrey Santa Parade & Presentation to Mayor Sim

Santa returned to Surrey in the 16th Annual “Surrey Santa Parade of Lights” in Cloverdale. Our 1982 GM ‘Fishbowl’ T6H5307N made its last public appearance before we begin its conversion to our 2nd mobile museum. That explains the lack of seats! One person that had a seat was driver Trevor Batstone! So too did assistants Jen Norton and Ewen Streit.

Recently, Vancouver Mayor Ken Sim expressed a keen interest in a Grant Money-Meter farebox. So Matthew and Sue Walker restored one of our surplus machines. On Tuesday December 4th, Matthew and Lawrence Walker presented it to the Mayor at a small ceremony at Vancouver Transit Centre. In the photo above, Matthew explains how to remove the safe. Ken Sim has said that any “fares” collected in the the farebox from visitors to the Mayor’s office will be donated to TMS. (Photo: Lawrence Walker)

At the presentation, Bryan Larrabee (TMS President), Mayor Ken Sim, and TMS Members, Matthew Walker, Lawrence Walker and Rhonda Larrabee.
