RED ORE CAR RESTORATION

The Bralorne Pioneer Museum is seeking an experienced woodworker to restore/rebuild the Red Ore Car.

It has really deteriorated just in the last couple of years and we need to restore it before it completely collapses.

This can be a contract or volunteer position, either way it is going to be a labor of love.

The ore car can be removed to do this.

The Heritage will provide advice and direction from a Heritage standpoint to the project.

Please drop us a line at bralornepioneermuseum@gmail.com or PM us on Facebook.

Snow Clearing Contract

The Bridge River Valley Community Association has several locations that will require snow clearing:

*Community Resource Building – Parking Lot Snow Plowing*

We are currently looking for a contractor or volunteer who will snow plow the small parking lot at the Community Resource Building and keep the stairs, walkways free of snow. Sanding may be required.  This clearing must be done on a very regular basis and during snow falls.

*Historic Bralorne Pioneer Mines Office Building*

This will involve some snow clearing where a quad/truck is needed as well as shoveling stairs in heavy snow conditions.

*Temporary Museum Location – Bralorne*

This will require mostly shovelling a path from road to door.  If quad/truck is available plowing the berm away that IRL leaves.

*Bralorne Church*

This is mostly shovelling on an as needed basis (we will usually advise) to keep pathway to stair, stairs and side door clear.

*Bridge River Valley Cemetery*

This, as per the church, will mostly be shovelling on an as needed basis (not necessarily when snowfall occurs) to keep a basic pathway open.

**Suitable for quad with plow, truck with plow or full equipment.
Please let us know if you are interested.  We are prepared to look at more than one contractor to cover these. Email bridgerivervalley@gmail.com
