The Delta Heritage Society and the Delta Archives are asking for the community’s help in identifying the people in this photograph, thought to be of a fishermen’s party or community dance that took place at Sunbury Hall around 1980.
So far about a third of the individuals in the photograph have been identified, including many of those in the front and members of the Mackie, Murakami, Stegavik and Iverson families.
Anyone who recognizes a face in the photograph or has a recollection of the particular event in greater detail is asked to reach out to the Delta Heritage Society at email@example.com or Delta Archives at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The current Sunbury Hall was built in 1963 and was a popular venue for community celebrations and events. It still stands today in Sunbury Park near the corner of Dunlop Road and Centre Street and was renovated in recent years.
The hall is operated by the Delta Firefighters Holding Society and was regularly rented out for community uses pre-pandemic. It also houses a daycare facility on the lower floor.
