The Village of Hazelton is gearing up for this weekends Annual Pioneer Day on Saturday and there are lots of great events throughout the day. Things start off early in the morning and don’t finish until after dark with the dance at the Skeena Ice Arena and the Candlelight Luminary for Cancer along the shores of the Skeena.

The Village Administrator, Kelly Mattson, said it should be another great year and they have lots of other exciting projects in the works including a new brochure called “The Top 100 Free Things to Do in the Hazeltons.”

“We (The Village of Hazelton) are spearheading a new brochure and we are asking everyone to submit their ideas for inclusion,” she explained. “It can be anything from walking trails at Hospital Lake to “glassing the billy goats on Roche De Boule from Seeley Lake” or any other kinds of ideas.”

Anyone interested is asked to email a response to the Village Office and they will start to complie them.

“If anyone has any pics of any of the suggestions, those would gladly be accepted too,” she said. “We can’t guarantee we will use them but you never know.”

As for timelines, Mattson said she hopes to be finished by early October with an estimated cutoff deadline of September 15 as they hope to print at this time.

She also added that it is not specific to just the Hazelton’s, any ideas from Kitwanga, Kispiox, Gitsegukla or the Suskwa would be greatly appreciated too.

They are also working on a second brochure titled “Did you Know? Hazelton’s Firsts” she said which will include things such as Hazelton’s First Olympic Gold Medal Winner, First Car in the Hazeltons, name of the first bandit to fall int he famous 1913 New Hazelton bank robbery, who built the first Hagwilget bridge and much more.”

“Be creative, and have fun,” she said.
