We have two new videos from the meeting held on Feb. 13, 2014. As our planned speaker had to cancel due to illness, the meeting was an open mic session with all attendees stepping up to speak with an anecdote or memory.
This made for a very different and entertaining video. The link is here and on the Oral history page.
Jack Mather also added a bit to his previous oral history video by telling us about working in MacKenzie BC when it was being built as a new town. An interesting comparison can be made to stories from the 1800's about new towns coming into being although it was usually because of gold rather than lumber in those days.
