Midway and Beyond Little Theatre


July 3rd, saw the dream of creating a theatre space in the Midway Community Hall take a huge leap forward when George Longden of the PHOENIX FOUNDATION handed the Midway Community Association a cheque for $4000. The MCA, sponsors of Midway and Beyond Little Theatre, will use the money to purchase 8 theatre lighting fixtures. The PHOENIX FOUNDATION, whose philosophy is to provide grants to support local initiatives throughout the Boundary communities, saw the value in establishing a local theatre in the West Boundary region and generously awarded these much needed funds to the Midway Association.

“Getting a working theatre on its feet takes both effort and funding. As a group we can provide the effort but purchasing the basic essentials such as lighting and sound equipment, curtains and a portable stage, are simply beyond normal fund-raising projects,” explains director John Hibberson. “We are so fortunate that community focused groups such as the Phoenix Foundation exist. We reached out to them; they realized our need and gave us this wonderful gift. We are so grateful.” (Midway and Beyond Little Theatre continues their work on the theatre space in the community hall. A new curtain and lighting bars are now up. The new lights will soon be hung and working, and there is recent hope is purchasing a portable stage. All going well their first production, a radio show drama based on the famous 1896 Camp McKinney Gold Bar Robbery, is planned for early November, 2014. )

The British Columbia Youth Parliament is held each year between Christmas and New Years. Students must apply to be a part of this activity, which takes place in the BC Legislature building. Being able to attend the British Columbia Youth Parliament was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had. To be able to sit in the Legislative Assembly with over ninety other young people, and go through the parliamentary process was an incredible experience. From going over BCYP's own constitution and our ongoing plans throughout the year, to debating issues that affect young Canadians as well as all Canadians alike was an amazing opportunity. Because of the help of the grant from the Phoenix Foundation, I was able to represent our community of Grand Forks, as well as the Boundary as a whole. Because of my future plans to go into politics, what I've learned at BC Youth Parliament I hope to use my entire life, as well as remember back on my experiences.
