Glimpses of the Past: 1975
Mission Community Archives / Fraser Valley Record fonds
MISSION JUNIOR SECONDARY students in costume at school dance held on Hallowe'en in 1975. The local newspaper reported that it had been a "Quiet Hallowe'en" that was "sane, enjoyable." This was attributed to the co-operation of various community clubs and organizations which held events , including a fireworks display by the Mission Kinsmen. The Archives has a series of photographs of the dance but lacks names for the students. If you or someone you can provide this information, please email the archivist, Val Billesberger.
