The Gold River Buzz will be on Hiatus Until Further Notice

It has come to the point where I need to take a break from the Buzz.  It use to be so fun and friendly and something I loved to get up and work on first thing in the morning, but it is just not that way anymore.
Please note: All paid advertising responsibilities have been met by me, and in fact I have not sent invoices out for quite a few months.

Looking for Firewood

We have just moved to Gold river and we have exhausted our one cord of firewood with this cold weather.
Is there is anyone that could spare a small pickup load of dry firewood that i could buy or replace in the spring/summer?

Thank You to Gold River

We would like to say thank you to everyone near and far for all they have done for us.
Words just cannot express how grateful we are to all of you for the love and caring you have shown.
Since I have been sick, the amount of support and offers to help have been overwhelming.
I cannot say enough about living in the loving, caring town of Gold River.
I have a long road ahead of me with my chemotherapy, so please check in with me from time to time.
Thank you for all of your prayers, thoughts and continued support.

Former Residents Family Needs Help

Cole Palmer

James Palmer (Cole’s Dad) was a Gold River resident in the 70s, 80s and 90s. They are fundraising to support his 7-year-old son who has a rare cancer.

Cole Palmer is an active, Star Wars loving grade 2 student at Telkwa Elementary in Northern British Columbia. On December 31st, 2016, Cole lost the feeling in his legs and the ability to walk. He was flown from Bulkley Valley District Hospital in Smithers to BC Children’s Hospital where a tumour was found on his spine. On January 1, 2017, Cole had surgery and part of 4 vertebrae with the tumour were removed. Cole was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare disease in which cancer cells are found in the bone.

The road to recovery for Cole will be a long one. He will be in Vancouver for at least 8 months undergoing chemotherapy and radiation for the cancer and physical rehabilitation as Cole is still unable to walk. Thankfully Cole is receiving the best treatment possible at BC Children’s Hospital. The staff and the volunteers at Ronald McDonald House and BC Children’s Hospital are providing the Palmer family with amazing care and support. Cole and his big sister Chloe are schooling at the hospital.

Please see the Cole Palmer Family Fundraising page for more information and to donate.
