2014 BC Winter Games President Brian Antonson and Vice President Pam Alexis were both well known in Mission for their amazing community spirit before they took on their roles to lead a team of volunteers to plan and stage one of the largest events ever held in their community.
Antonson said, "Now it's up to the community to share in that joy.

In a word, Games president Brian Antonson described the efforts as "amazing."
He was impressed with the volunteers, the athletes and how the major event came together.
Antonson praised the directors for exceeding his expectations in their duties, and pointed to chef Peter Bucher as an example of someone who went beyond his responsibilities.
Antonson had heard compliments about the food all weekend and commended the chef the morning after the competitions ended.
"He focused on good solid meals and made sure the kids had the proper nutrition," Antonson said.
Antonson was a part of the planning committee for two years.
"I didn't sign up for an easy two years, but I don't think any of us knew how hard it would be," shared Antonson. "Everyone rolled up their sleeves."
If there were lessons to be learned, they were learned quickly, said Antonson, who noted the experience taught him many things, including how to work with volunteers.
There were B plans and C plans developed for some sports like skiing, but in the end, no one could plan for the weather. The alpine skiing competition was cut short Saturday because of the heavy snowfall at Hemlock and organizers worked hard to prepare the course for Sunday.
All the planning and preparations paid off, said Antonson.
More than 1,000 people braved the cold temperatures and attended the opening ceremonies at Mission Raceway Park Thursday night, and attendance at sporting event venues were impressive. Some facilities were at capacity and organizers were only letting spectators in when others left.
Antonson visited every venue in Mission and watched as many sports as he had time for. He was impressed by the athleticism and was pleased the kids had smiles on their faces.
There will be a special segment dedicated to Winter Games volunteers at this year's Community Service Awards ceremony on May 31, and Adlem will be meeting with Antonson later this week to discuss other ways to recognize what the group accomplished.
A committee will be formed this spring to come up with suggestions for the legacy project, but regardless of what that project will be, one of the lasting legacies is the spirit of volunteerism, said Antonson.
"A lot of people had fun, a lot had a good experience giving back."
The local economic impact from the four-day event will not be known until later this year when the results of a study on the economic spinoff is released.
"They (the Games society) do this every few years," Antonson explained, adding part of the study is based on street interviews with people attending the games.
He also noted the economic spinoff from the 2008 B.C. Winter Games in the Kimberley-Cranbrook area was $1.8 million.
