“Mr Whonnock,” Brian Byrnes looks on as Allan Springman, (Whonnock Community Association), centre, and Glen Kask (Mission Historical Society) sign the agreement to keep the historic records collected by the Whonnock Community Association in the Mission Community Archives. The WCA retains ownership of the record.
Mission, 9 January 1997.
History is the account of things said and done in the past—it has the power to delight and enrich us, enlarging and intensifying the experience of being alive. ASLH
In 2002 the Whonnock Community Association received the Heritage Achievement Award from the Maple Ridge Community Heritage Commission for the WCA’s contribution towards the conservation and enrichment of heritage in Maple Ridge. Mission Community Archives

Starting with the “Historical Project” in the summer of 1985 the WCA collects records (documents and photographs) related to the past of Whonnock and Whonnockians. Since 1997 the growing collection, known as Whonnock Archives, has been kept at the Mission Community Archives. The collection is accessible to anyone interested in our past.  
The Whonnock Community Association endorses the publication of information from the Whonnock Archives, such as the Whonnock Notes, and welcomes research using the archives as well as any suggestions and actions that would contribute to a better knowledge of the past of our community and its inhabitants.  
The Whonnock Community Association asks you to search your boxes and files for any documents or photographs relating to Whonnock and Whonnockians. If you don’t want to donate the documents or photographs, we would be very happy to just keep a copy or scan in the Whonnock Archives. Give us a chance to preserve the past.
