In 1975, members of the Ming Sun Benevolent Society gathered outside
their building at 439 Powell Street for a 50th anniversary celebration.

Dear family, friends and supporters,

Friends of 439 invites you to celebrate new beginnings and the Year of the Horse by joining us, along with members of the Ming Sun Benevolent Society, in re-creating the above photograph. We will take a multi-community, multi-generational photo to honour the building’s 125 years of history, the families and communities connected to it, and those who have come together from all walks of life to support its restoration. All are welcome.
