HAPPY CANADA DAY MISSION!

Head out to Fraser River Heritage Park and enjoy all the free activities

Mission residents will gather at Fraser River Heritage Park on Monday, July 1, to celebrate Canada Day.

The event begins with a Rotary Pancake Breakfast at 8 a.m. and runs throughout the day.

Activities and entertainment include yoga in the park, martial arts demonstration, fly ball and agility, magic music, a talent show, a kid zone, cake cutting and so much more.
