Flyback Fridays - Ruth Hellevang Remembers

Welcome to Flyback Fridays - a glimpse into Pemberton’s past! This season we will bring you stories and videos from Tea & Tales and our video archives over the last decade that highlight Pioneer life and the resiliency of early settlers and First Nations.  We will also share videos and stories that show how local residents have responded to emergencies and challenges in the past, illustrating the power of community ties through all kinds of difficulties – yesterday and today.

Ruth Hellevang remembers arriving in Pemberton and her early experiences with her neighbours and the sharing of prized perennials.  Watch it here

Ruth also speaks about her first experience as a teacher in Annieville before she married and moved up to Pemberton.  Watch it here.

These are excerpts from Tea & Tales in 2009 - Early Schools presentation.
