Help Us Find You in an Emergency

A Message From Gold River Volunteer Fire & Rescue

Help us help you in an emergency!  Making sure your house address numbers are easily visible from the street is very important and will enable first responders—be it fire, ambulance, or police—to come to your aid as quickly as possible.  Here are five tips to ensure your address can easily be seen from the street.

1. The best place to position your address numbers is on or beside your front door.

2. The numbers should be large enough so they’re easily seen from the street.

3. If your door is not visible from the street, attach your address numbers to a post, fence, tree, or large rock at your driveway’s entrance.

4. To increase their visibility, illuminate the numbers or ensure they’re a contrasting colour from the surface they’re displayed on. Adding a coat of reflective paint can help with nighttime visibility too!

5. Prune any bushes or trees that could be blocking the view of your numbers from the street. Parked vehicles, boats, seasonal décor, and other objects can prevent emergency responders from seeing your house number, so make sure they aren’t in the way.

If you have any other tips or ideas on how to make a house address more visible, we’d love to hear them!

Thank You From The Messer Family


We would like to extend our thanks to everybody in Gold River who has reached out to our family over the past couple of weeks.  Mom (Jackie Bell) had an extraordinary affect on many people.  Consequently, many people from out of town came to pay their last respects.  We had as many as 30 out of town family members plus many more friends who came to Gold River.  We could not have made our time together as wonderful as it was without the help of many of our local businesses for support:

Brad and Lynne Unger at Super Valu– you guys are the best.  Thank you for the generous donation of providing a meal for all of my relatives. (Your recipe for thin sliced roast beef is truly the best).  The service and attention to detail by all your employees was wonderful.

Thank you to the Manila Grill, Lala, Eiya, and Kay, for allowing us to truly invade your restaurant.  An amazing amount of work for three people, but you fed us all with great food and warm smiles.  Salamat Po.

Thank you to the Gold River Chalet for accommodating many of the family at a special rate and to Lana for her friendly patient smile while offering directions to our guests to keep them from wandering “willy nilly” through the town.

Thank you to the Gold River Buzz.  Communication is so important and, Kyra, you make this so quick and easy.  You not only donate most of your time to this service, but you provide an invaluable service in keeping Gold River connected!

Lastly, one group of people that rarely are acknowledged for everything they do are the pillars that keep our St. Peter and St. Paul Church alive. They plug away, maintaining everything on the church, including the grounds, and they all jump into action whenever there is a crisis.  This building is an icon for Gold River, and it would be so sad to see it unmaintained.  So –thank you!  Also, thank you for moving chairs and tables to accommodate over a hundred people!

Out of town relatives and friends have often asked why Rick and I stay in Gold River.  Well, now they have witnessed it firsthand.

On behalf of my family,

Thank you. Bridgite Messer

Lost Wallet – Possibly Anywhere From Gold River to Nesook

Via Corrine Millard:

Update:  Corrine emailed the Buzz yesterday to say that she had just received a call from the Powell River RCMP Detachment and they have her wallet.  She would like to thank the kind people who dropped it off with Canada Post – it has made its way back to her!

Friday August 1st, I left the Gold River Shell station at approximately 12pm and drove out to Nesook, where my truck was parked until Monday August 4th.  Upon arriving back in Gold River on Monday, I realized my wallet was missing.  I have been franticly searching and have yet to find it.  I am thinking I may have left it on the back of my truck bumper while grabbing ice from the Shell station and it has fallen off on route to Nesook.  Although all my cards and license have now been replaced, it would be a huge piece of mind to find it.  It is teal in colour with black and white cats on it and was a gift from my daughter.

Please contact myself , Corrine Millard at 250-757-9739 or locally at 250-283-2439.

Thank you in advance for your help.

A Cold Prickly

Via Villoy Dorrington:

A polar ice cold prickly to the person or persons who pulled up the phlox growing on the rockery in front of our home, throwing it onto the rest of the rockery and actually throwing the rocks there also.

How dare you destroy what Bob and I are trying to beautify? You have probably killed a good part of the growth by throwing those rocks onto it, some of which came from somewhere else.  This we know because we hauled only white rocks to use here.  Who the hell do you think you are? If you are so intent on making things miserable for us why not just help find a buyer for our place and you can be rid of us?  It would take a lot less effort on your part and you would not have to wait until we were away or asleep to do your damage.

Shame on you for sneaking around to do something like this. I can guarantee you that if there are any more incidents like this, the authorities will be notified, a file opened, and certain persons questioned.

Jacquelyn Betty Bell Passes

Jacquelyn Betty Bell_1Jacquelyn Betty Bell

Jacquelyn “Jackie” Betty Bell passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her family on August 1, 2014, one month shy of 81 years old.

Jackie was born at home in Swan River, Manitoba on Sept 28, 1933.  She was the third child of four girls born to Jack and Annie Jones.  She met her husband, Keith Edward Francis Bell from Portage la Prairie at a barn dance.  They eloped to Edmonton, Alberta where they were married on Dec 12, 1953, a marriage of 60 years.  They started their family and resided there for 20 years before moving to Gold River, BC in 1974.  Jackie’s main focus in life was to be the maker of a very happy home.  Friends and family appreciated her ability to be forthright but never hurtful.  With twinkly eyes and a heartwarming smile, she was very humble, unpretentious, and accepted everyone for who they were, making her very easy to like.  She never knew it, but had the power to have an extraordinary affect on all those who knew her.  At the root of everything she did was her strong Christian faith whether it was teaching Sunday school, helping on a church or health auxiliary, or just simply helping a neighbour, a friend, or sometimes a complete stranger.  She was an avid reader, especially of the Bible and of church history that was written even before the Bible was printed.  She attended many bible studies of various Christian denominations.

Jackie silently suffered for many years with lupus and lastly cancer, but whenever she was asked about her health, even in her last days, she would always be grateful for the things that were good as “it could be worse.”

She is survived by her husband Keith; her two children John “Richard” (Linda) and Bridgite (Richard “Rick” Messer).   Jackie has three grand children: Christin (Luke Schaab), Justin Bell and Cassandra Messer.  She is also survived by her two sisters Gwen and Mae and is predeceased by her third sister Anita.

Family and friends are invited to a viewing on Friday August 8, 2014 at 12PM at the Church of St. Peter and St. Paul followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 1PM.  Also, thank you to the Gold River Senior’s club who are arranging to have refreshments and snacks in the church basement after the Mass.

Special thanks, with the utmost admiration, for the assistance provided by all the staff at the Gold River Health Clinic and our local VIHA home care assistant, enabling Jackie to spend her last days in her own home.

Thank you to anyone considering a memorial donation.  She would have greatly appreciated that. Jackie donated to many charities, but one of her favourites was Operation Smile: 1-888-677-6453 or operationsmile.ca

The way Jacquelyn lived her life is a wonderful example for us all.

Resident Spotlights – Rick & Kirsty Begon

Rick & KirstyI met both these Resident Spotlights even before we moved back to Gold River in 2007.   It must have been during our Ahousaht days (2004-06) when we would come back to Muchalaht Lake to camp.  They were just dating back then! (Separate tents, I’m sure.)

Thanks so very much Kirsty and Rick for taking the time out of your busy schedules to be my Spotlights!

I hope everyone enjoy this two-for-one Spotlight as much as I did! :)

How long have you lived in Gold River?

Kirsty – almost 9 years.

Rick – I moved here in 1969, when I was 12 years old.

What brought you here?

Kirsty – The love of my life!

Rick – my Dad worked in the pulp mill.

What do you do for (paid) work?

Kirsty – I own, A lot in the Side/ Sears. And I’m a councillor for our Village.

Rick – I work for Nootka Sound Service, and I’m also the Fire Chief for the Gold River Volunteer Fire Dept.

Please tell us about any volunteer work you do.

Kirsty – I volunteer with the Gold River Community Policing. I try to help any group that needs it. I bake for bake sales, help with bottle drives as well as Gold River Days. I’m also working on the revitalizing of Nimpkish Park.

Rick – I have been a volunteer fire fighter for 18 years, and like Kirsty, I try to help whenever asked.

Please tell us a bit about your family.

Our immediate family is:

Kirsty, – I have 3 children.  Tia, my oldest lives here.  Shantelle and Anthony both lived here and went to GRSS, then moved down Island .  A few years ago my Mommy moved to Gold River also!

Rick – I have 1 daughter, Stephanie who lived in Gold River. She has since moved away and currently lives in Alberta.

Tia  has a little boy named Connor who is everything to us.  Tia works a lot and we are blessed to have Connor.

Rick & Stephanie Anthony, Shantelle & TiaConnor


Our extended family:

We have our Church family, we are blessed to have all of them! The Fire Dept is another part of our family.

Do you have any pets?

Do we have pets??!!  We have 2 horses, Merlin and Aly, and our little dog Tod.  We have our cats as well… only Smudge is Ricks, the rest are the kids cats.

Merlin & Aly Tod

We are very happy to say that we are adopting a new dog!  We get “Maggie” on August 9th.

What do you like to do for fun?

Kirsty – I love riding. But I don’t have enough time to ride as much as I want.  Being with my family and when I have time, I love scrap-booking.

Rick – I golf, and love puttering at the barn.

What do you wish Gold River had that it doesn’t? Is there anything missing for you?

Kirsty – all my kids!

Rick – jobs for young people.

And just for fun – if you had 1 million dollars to donate to the community in any way you wished – what would you do with the money?

Kirsty – either a really cool playground, or a new seniors centre.

Rick – I’d donate it to the golf course

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Kirsty – Gold River is a wonderful community.  I’m very lucky to live here and be part of this Village.

Rick – Gold River always steps up and helps out whenever anyone needs it’s a fantastic community to be part of.
