MISSION 125 COMMEMORATIVE BOOK
The year 2017 marks the 125th anniversary of the incorporation of the District of Mission. This milestone was celebrated with the publication of a revised edition of a book on the community's history that was originally published in 1973. The project was undertaken by the Mission Community Archives through a grant from the Community Fund for Canada's 150th, a colloboration between the Mission Community Foundation, the District of Mission, and the Government of Canada.
Daphne Sleigh, a well-known BC historian and author, has mostly kept to the original authors' arrangement of material and choice of subject matter in the 1973 edition. CLICK HERE
