Whonnock Community Association

  • Corporate body
  • 1975-

The Whonnock Memorial Hall Society was incorporated on December 15, 1975. On December 1, 1981, the name of the society was changed by special resolution to Whonnock Community Association (WCA). The Association carried out a historical project in 1985, prompted by the 1980 celebration of the 90th anniversary of the Whonnock school, an occasion which brought many former residents of Whonnock together. The intention of the WCA was to produce a booklet on the history of the Whonnock community with an emphasis on the establishment of postal service in the area. Funding for two summer student research positions was provided by Challenge '85, British Columbia/Canada Summer Employment Program. The target date for the booklet was the 100th anniversary celebration in 1990. Although the manuscript was not completed nor the book published, the research data and materials were saved and preserved by the WCA.
