In memory of Bruce and Reta Hughson

The Whonnock Foundation gratefully acknowledges a donation of $5,000 by the daughters of Reta and Bruce Hughson in honour of their parents.  
Bruce and Reta Hughson made Whonnock their home from 1945 to 1992. Bruce died in 1997 and Reta on August 31st, 2016.   
They loved their 10 acre property on the corner of 272nd and 104th Avenue and raised their three daughters there. 
Later in life they moved into Maple Ridge and then Reta to residential care in Vancouver but they always called Whonnock home - it held such a special place in their hearts.
