Reaching Out – Connecting Generations and Cultures – Past and Present
A project funded by New Horizons for Seniors
The Bridge River Valley Community Association (BRVCA) plans to reach out to vulnerable seniors who are disconnected as a result of being socially and/or geographically isolated throughout the vast area of the Bridge River Valley. The isolation causes disconnection from peers, younger generations, and the community itself.
Outreach will be achieved by hiring a project coordinator to connect with seniors on a monthly basis and transport them to the Gold Bridge Community hall where they will meet up with other seniors and St’at’imc Nation Elders to share knowledge, skills, and experiences, and to collaborate on ways to preserve and to share this information.
This project will also encourage intergenerational and intercultural learning through engagement activities with local and St’at’imc Nation Youth. Seniors and Elders will determine the project activities, which may include preparing traditional foods, creating hard copy and electronic scrapbooks capturing past and present day memories, learning traditional and modern crafts and techniques, as well as learning traditional languages and modern day technology.
Project Coordinator must demonstrate an ability to work with a vulnerable population as well as enjoying facilitating the lunches and activities each month.
Education/Experience in the social services field would be an asset.
One Year project – mid-February 2018 to mid-February 2019
Two days per month (14 hours) @ $18/hr. One day will be for planning, the other day for facilitating the monthly lunch
Vehicle preferred, although we can probably find an alternate vehicle for the right coordinator. A ll expenses will be reimbursed.
Please submit your resume by February 9, 2018 to email@example.com
Questions can be answered by calling us at the office and we will get the correct person to call you back.

What is going on with the Bralorne-Pioneer Museum?
In July 2017, The Bridge River Valley Community Association purchased the Bralorne Pioneer Mines Motel (nee Office) with the intention of relocating the Bralorne Pioneer Museum into the building.
It is the intent of the Bridge River Valley Community Association in partnership with the Bralorne Pioneer Museum Society to create a space for the Museum that will become an attraction for visitors and a place to celebrate the area’s rich heritage.
The Bralorne Pioneer Mines Motel, first opened in 1939 and was the site of the Bralorne Pioneer Mines Office. Now that the building has been purchased, the next step will be to renovate a significant portion of the building to become the new home of the Bralorne Pioneer Museum, which was established in 1977.
The remainder of the building will be activated for purposes of revenue generation, including long and short term rentals of both office space and residential, a gift shop and coffee shop. The revenue streams will create new professional jobs in the community and will also help to ensure the ongoing maintenance of an important heritage building.
This project would not be possible without the generous support of many funders including; The Government of Canada – Gas Tax Fund – Community Works Fund program, the Province of BC and the BC Museums Association – BC| Canada 150: Celebrating B.C Communities and their Contribution to Canada program, the Bralorne-Pioneer Museum Society, Northern Development Initiative Trust – Community Halls and Recreation Facilities Program , the Squamish- Lillooet Regional District – Northern Payment In Lieu of taxes fund, as well as several private funders.
The Bridge River Valley Community Association sincerely appreciates the support and we are thankful to our funders who are making this project a reality.
In 2010, the Bridge River Valley Community Association conducted a building assessment and cost analysis of the Bralorne Pioneer Museum’s existing location. The structure, which had housed the museum since the 1980’s was constructed in the 1950’s as a temporary class room for the Bralorne High School’s Industrial Arts programme. The 2010 report advised the Museum Society not to renovate the museum’s existing building due to advanced structural damage. The report concluded that the best course of action would be either to construct a new building on the existing site or find a suitable building in Bralorne in which to relocate the museum. The community determined that constructing a new building on the existing location would be cost prohibitive.
By 2014, the Museum building had deteriorated to the point that the most vulnerable items in the collection had to be moved to a temporary leased location to ensure protection from environmental damage.
During this time, the community identified the possibility of relocating to the Bralorne Pioneer Mines Office (Motel) as the most beneficial solution. It is the only building in the Bralorne townsite both large enough and in reasonable enough condition to occupy. The building is prominently located in the centre of Bralorne and has been well cared for since it became privately held in the 1970s when the mine closed.
Further, the building served as the Mines office from 1939- 1971 and carries historic significance to the community. Coincidentally, the Mines Office building was the original home of the museum when it first opened its doors in 1977. However the museum had to be relocated when the office came under new ownership in the 1980s.
Through this project, the Museum will come full-circle and return to its original home, while providing other economic opportunities for the community and a self-sustaining revenue source to maintain the building.
