Midway Partnership Fund (MPF) Chairperson John Fair (right) presents a cheque to Ross Elliott, the chairperson of the Midway Trails Society, towards the purchase of all of the new directional and informational signs that have been and are being erected around the community of Midway.

Looking on are Midway Trails Society directors Fran Elliott and Adrianna Goodson.

Midway Partnership dollars come from two sources: the Heritage Fund (an investment partnership between the Village of Midway and the Vancouver Foundation); and, the Legacy Fund (partnership between the village and the Phoenix Foundation).

Pamphlets with full details about the work of the MPF are available at the library and the village office.

The MPF is supported by the Phoenix Foundation of the Boundary Communities.
