The Verge: Between Worlds
August 2 until August 30, 2012 at the Valemount & Area Museum, an exhibition featuring drawings and paintings by Andrea Fredeen, Annerose Georgeson, Karma Vance and Michele Jensen. Artworks will be touring to three communities in the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George from June 2012 until November 2012. Though the four artists featured in this exhibition share representations of the forest as their subject matter, they each approach the forest from a unique perspective.
Enjoy an Opening Reception on Saturday, August 4, 2012 at 11 a.m. and a Free workshop with Karma Vance on Sunday, August 5, 2012 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

In Memory of Victor Kohlman
According to the Barrier Star Journal, Barrier man Victor Kohlman of V R V Contracting was confirmed deceased at the scene of a two-vehicle collision north of Avola, B.C. Many Robson Valley locals knew Victor as once upon a time he lived and worked in Valemount running his “hi-balling hi-lead logging operation” as it has been called. Our condolences.
Valemount Community Health Centre
It is time to celebrate Valemount; the $3.3 million in renovations and upgrades at the Valemount Community Health Centre are complete. Just over half of the $3.3 million project went towards renovating the emergency department with the remaining portion going to improving the electrical and mechanical systems.
