Operated by the Mission District Historical Society, the Mission Community Archives serves as a central repository for all community records that document the social, economic, and political development of the District of Mission and the Fraser Valley Regional District Electoral Areas: I (Dewdney-Hatzic Island), J (Nicomen Island – Deroche), K (Lake Errock) and L (McConnell Creek-Hatzic Prairie).
The holdings include the records of individuals and families, arts and community organizations, clubs and local businesses and some local government. The archives also maintain a small reference collection pertaining to the history of the municipality, genealogical research, and the administration of archives.
Glimpses of the Past: 1947
MAYPOLE DANCING was reintroduced at the 26th annual May Day celebrations after a seven year absence. Four groups of dancers from grades 2 to 6 at Mission Central skipped and wound their ribbons around the maypoles at the Mission Fairgrounds under the direction of Mrs. Dick Swanton, Mrs. Jean Taylor and Miss Jean Girvin. You can see May Pole Dancing on July 26th by the Fraser Valley Dance Academy at the Mission Community Archives and Mission Museum. WATCH for updates on our Facebook page this week.
