Name change excludes outlying residents

Editor, The Record:

I notice from two stories in the Aug. 18 issue of The Mission Record that the former Celebration of Community is now called Celebrate Mission.

Isn’t that a bit of a slap in the face to those of us in the Fraser Valley Regional District, immediately adjacent to the east side of Mission? Most of us shop in Mission, use the library, the medical facilities and entertainments and more, and also spend most of our volunteering hours in Mission.

Didn’t this occur to anyone when the name change was suggested?

First, the newspaper went from being the Fraser Valley Record to the Mission Record, now the name change for this event.

I am beginning to get a feeling of not being wanted!
