The Mission Community Foundation (MCF) celebrated 25 years of service Nov. 16 with a dinner at Cedarbrooke Chateau.

Incoming MCF chair Mike Miles was the emcee for the evening, which drew more than 80 of the foundation’s participants including benefactors, recipients and community organizations. One of six original founders Norm Cook said that since its inception, the MCF has awarded $1.4 million in scholarships and community grants.

There are plans to install a founder’s bench in the rain garden at Seventh Avenue and Grand Street as a legacy project.

Financial donations for the project are being accepted at Mission Community Foundation, PO Box 3427, Mission, B.C., V2V 4J5.
