'104 and counting' - Two Stories Worth Telling

Managed by volunteers who admire the indomitable 104 year old Dr. Mary Anne Cooper, this GoFundMe campaign supports the creation of a broadcast quality documentary film.  It will profile Port Moody’s most senior citizen and her hometown of Port Moody.  The City and Mary Anne are the same age and this film will tell their parallel history.

Mary Anne demonstrates time and again that age is no deterrent for those who wish to be fully engaged in their community. This super senior keeps fit and positive, speaks wisely and regularly at council meetings and lobbies persistently for what she believes in. She won a US national swimming award at age 96. What is her recipe?

‘104 and Counting’ will capture Mary Anne’s unique personality and lifestyle and acknowledge her body of work as a senior, achieving heritage designation for Ioco town site. It will include wonderful archival resources about Port Moody, current cityscapes and rich commentary by Port Moody Station Museum director Jim Millar.  The compelling story of Mary Anne’s efforts to protect the historic Ioco town site puts a spotlight on heritage losses and the value of heritage protection.

About the film maker – We are excited to have Port Moody’s internationally recognized documentary film maker Eva Wunderman at the helm. She’s excited too.

Won’t you join us to make this happen?   Donations of all sizes are gratefully accepted with all funds going towards the production costs.
