This fund was created in memory of James Patty by his sister Carolyn Kjersem as a way to provide support for mentally and developmentally challenged individuals who reside within the Fraser Valley. Preference will be given to the residents of Mission City.

 Bursaries, Scholarships or Grants may be given to any student with special needs, trainee, employee, or volunteer who has shown consistent effort to perform to the best of their ability. Bursary/Scholarship is also available for post-secondary education pursuing studies and/or a career which benefits the mentally challenged or developmentally disabled.

Interest accrued in this fund may also be used to assist in the funding of free music at the Twilight Concert Series in Heritage Park with consideration given to the attendance of individuals or groups with special needs.

In memory of James Patty and Friends this fund will eventually sponsor one evening each summer of special entertainment as a token of his appreciation for the many musical, magical, evenings enjoyed at this community park.
