Flyback Fridays Joe Antonelli 2011 - short version

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.

This week we feature Joe Antonelli who came to the museum to talk about his years living in the Pemberton Valley. Joe talks about working as a forest ranger, his tie mill at Tisdale and how happy he was to get called up to the air force while he was logging in the 1940's. Watch it here.
