Archives Celebrating Milestone
Mission Community Archives
On October 7th, 1994 a dream was realized. A custom-designed, state of the art facility providing optimal space for Mission's documentary heritage was officially opened. The building was filled to capacity by people who came to witness the historic event - the first facility of its kind in the community and the Fraser Valley.
The Community Archives was constructed as part of the new library complex which opened earlier that same year. The planning, constructing and opening of the new Mission Community Archives facility involved local government officials and personnel, members of the Mission District Historical Society, citizens of the community, contractors, architects, conservators and many more.
On October 29th at 2PM, there will be a joint 20th anniversary celebration with the library. There will be displays about the construction and the vital role these two information resource centres serve in the community. Mark the date on your calendar so you do not miss this milestone celebration! Watch for further details in the upcoming weeks.
