Mission’s new municipal council made their very first order of business the proclamation that Dec. 12 be deemed “Roadrunner Day” in recognition of the outstanding seasons of the Senior and Junior Varsity football teams.
Varsity defeated the previously unbeaten John Barsby Bulldogs 16-12 last Saturday to win the B.C. AA title at BC Place stadium. Meanwhile, the juniors dropped a close match 22-20 to the junior Bulldogs.
Mayor Ted Adlem congratulated the teams for their season before leading the motion to formally recognize them with a proclamation.
“Anybody who votes against this will be thrown under the bus,” he joked, as the motion carried unanimously.
No special plans or events for Monday have been announced by the district, but the Record will make updates should that change.
