The Grey Cup to visit Union Gospel Mission in New Westminster

Those accessing resources from Union Gospel Mission in New Westminster will get a fun honour on Tuesday as the Grey Cup makes an appearance at the Mission.  Special guests visiting along with the cup are: Jamie Taras, BC Lions Community Relations Direction; several serve the breakfast.  Hopefully a few BC Lions will be able to join as well, but that is not confirmed.

Union Gospel Mission is delighted that this unique tribute could be extended to those who can rarely—if ever—attend the special events and that many people take for granted.

Tuesday, December 13, 2011
Breakfast: 8:30am – 9:30 am
The Lionbackers will be available after the breakfast; we are not sure how much longer the breakfast the Grey Cup will be onsite
