Partnership fund elects new board

The Midway Partnership Advisory Committee distributes interest income
from two funds each spring to the geographic area of Midway.

The Midway Partnership Fund (MPF) held their AGM on May 13 at the Midway Community Hall.

It was with regret that directors heard that due to ill health Bob Hart resigned from the board. Bob had been a director since the inception of the Midway Partnership Fund.

Elected as officers and directors for the coming year were: Chairperson – John Fair, Co- Chairperson – Danny Anderson, Recording Secretary – Elaine Fromme and Directors at Large – John Greaves and Kim Lindseth.

The Directors are looking for more people to join the committee. If anyone is interested please contact any of the members or the Village Office.

The board announced they have accepted six project proposals for 2013:

Midway Museum – upgrade of the Caboose

Midway Curling Club – upgrading the washrooms

West Boundary Housing Society – defibrillator

Boundary Minor Hockey – defibrillator

Midway Library – completing the meeting room

John Boltz Run – picnic tables.

This year the group has $7,000 available for distribution in the community.

Funds that are distributed come from two sources. The Heritage Fund is an investment partnership between the Village of Midway and the Vancouver Foundation.

This fund continues in perpetuity and each year the interest income is forwarded to the Advisory Committee for granting purposes.

The Legacy Fund is an investment partnership between the Village and the Phoenix Foundation. This fund carries on in perpetuity; however, unlike the Heritage Fund it remains open to donations from any interested party.

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

Since 2010 the Midway Partnership Fund has provided funding to the museum, trails society and tennis courts.

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