Ph.   886-2116  ���  Gibsons,   B.C.  tie hat  sons  on  GIBSONS FIRE HALL  Soon after the Village of Gibsons was incorporated in 1929,  plans for a water supply main  through the village, with stand-  pipes at critical points, was designed. This pipeline complete  with standpipes was started in  1931  and completed in 1936.  Shortly after the completion of  the water mains, certain citizens  got together and decided to form  a volunteer fire fighting group.  The village fathers of that day-  saw fit to buy several lengths  of canvas hose.  Dick Cooper built a hose reel-r  and a cart to carry it. Considerable interest 7 was shown about  this time and'7 many practices  were held and, some fires were  put out. There wasy no great  change to equipment except for  the addition of more two inch  canvas hose. y  During the war years those of  the Fire Fighting group not in  the Armed- Forced-joined--with;  the Air Raid Precaution group.';  This group was given a four-cylinder fire pump and several hundred feet' of one-and-one-half  inch rubber lined hose..  In the summer of 1945 water  service was improved throughout  the village and more standpipes  were installed. The A.R.P. group  disbanded in September of that  year.  Early in 1946 the newly formed  Ratepayers Association undertook to raise money for the improvement of the fire fighting  equipment and with the help of  the small brigade of the time  under chief Eric Inglis put on  the first Firemen's Ball which  received enthusiasticl support  from  the community.  -  Ratepayers used some of the  funds raised from this first dance  to put in the road that connects  CNIB tops  $1,000 mark  Ted Henniker, chairman of the  Peninsula branch of the Canadian National Institute for the  Blind reports that the annuel  campaign for funds last October  and November wound up with a  total of $1,128.28 collected in this  district which extends from Pender Harbour to Port Mellon.' - - ������  This total represents 473 donations and is indicative of the time  and energy expended by the volunteers in the various areas. It  is to them the Peninsula Branch  owes the success of the campaign  and to them go the sincere thanks  and appreciation of the B.C. division as well as those of the  Peninsula branch of the C.N.I.B.  Sechelt Highway with the road  in front of the Gibsons Building  Supplies, thus giving access to  that part of the village from  where the equipment was stored  in  the old V.O.N. garage.  During the summer of 1946 the  Granthams Fire Brigade came  into existence under chief Les  Steadman This organization was  composed of 18 men, including a  hose crew of six, a ladder crew  of six and a salvage crew of six.  Unfortunately this unit was short  lived and the equipment consisting of an A.R.P. mobile pump-  (Coniinued on Page 6)  Historic map  now  A historic map of interest to  ybbthr business- orgahrzatipn_yand  ; residents is now! available at the  Coast News office: Covering the  area between Port Mellon and  Saltery Bay, it shows place  names, not as they have been  designated since the arrival of  Europeans, but as employed by.  the aboriginal Cpast Salish inhabitants.  Names, most of which have not  been recorded  up to this time,  were   dictated   by  members   of  the Sechelt Band to Les Peterson, and the map delineated by  Mrs.  A.  R.  West.  . At the time of Captain Vancouver,   the  Indians  occupying, the  area between what that explorer called Howe Sound and Jervis  Inlet    numbered .approximately  5,000.  Some  30  villages  located  along the   coastline  of this dis->  trict spoke almost identical dialects of one language, and identified tbemselyes. as one people.  Sites   of   these   villages,   almost  all but Sechelt uninhabited now,  are  located  on the  map, along  with as many geographic names,  as space permits.  At present the map is set up  in a size appropriate for the reverse side of business or personal stationery. It couJd also  be adapted to dining room place  mats, wall-maps, signs and other  publicity media. Quantity lots, ���  from one hundred copies up, are  available at the Coast News office,   Gibsons..  Alfred E. Ritchey, chairman  of Gibsons village council, former logger, V.O.N, president and  member of the school board,  was chosen Good Citizen of the  Year.  The choice was announced at  Monday night's Gibsons and  Area Board of Trade meeting  which aso saw. a new set of officers  elected.  The new board president, installed by Magistrate Johnston,  will be Charles Mandelkau of  Shell service station. His vice-  president will be Ken McHeffey  of Kenmac. Dr. Ron Whiting,  chiropractor, will be secretary  and Ted Henniker, Bank of Montreal manager, treasurer. An executive of ten members will be  announced later.  Mr.    Ritchey   stood    alongside  Mrs. Ritchey as Magistrate Andy  Johnston read off the Good Citizen citation. He showed his surprise at being chosen and when v  he was able to muster words to- -'.  gether said the award was totally unexpected. He added that un.  der the circumstances he could  not stand and accept the award  without his  helpmeet,, Mrs.  Ritchey being with him. Magistrate  Johnston    offered   his   warmest'  wishes for a long and happy life.  There were 50 at the dinner including guests from Sechelt,  the  magistrate   and   Mrs.' Christine  ��� Johnston and Mr. and Mrs. Norminton. Mr. Norminton is. president of Sechelt's Board of Trade.  Business    conducted    included  the   disapproval  of   the   manner  in which the BCE was taken over  as the result of a B.C. Chamber  of   Commerce   request  that   the  board take  some stand;   re-iter  ation    of  ' its    previous     stand  against   trading    stamps;    prod;'.<  ding of the department of public?  works  to have  the  damage   repaired to the breakwater which;  was smashed when a Shell tank-i  er   had   trouble    docking   some  time   ago.   Discussion   was   left  open p on  the possible change   of  name   from  Board   of  Trade   to.  Chamber  of   Commerce   in   line  with today's general trend.  President John Harvey ih his  retiring address said the board  could take credit for having a-  TiCMP boat installed at Gibsons,  and a much better boat than was  expected. As regards the endles*.  transportation problem he suggested that with a change o>  management to. government ferries "we will have to wait and  see what will be done." He hoped better facilities would be provided.  Magistrate    Johnston    complimented Gibsons board members  for the broad views, they took of  affairs in this area. Boards of  trade were a great regulatory  .factor in business he said. He  .found co-operation with Gibsons  Board of Trade worthwhile. Mr.  JNorminton said it was a privilege to belong to a board of  trade. You could stand up and  j?ay what you like, pro and con.  ��� Walt Nygren reported on the  quarterly Chamber of Commerce  meeting at Richmond where he  and William Wright heard a great,  deal of talk about the tourist influx expected this summer a.  the result of the Seattle World  Fair.  | Dan Wheeler, chairman of the  nominating committee presented  the slate of officers for election.

Mr. Payne announced he will  seek nomination for a second  term at the, annual meeting of  Gibsons Progressive - Conservative association Thursday nighl  of last week at Roberts Creek  Legion hall. -  At this meeting Mr. A. E. Tid-.  ball of Roberts Creek was elected president of the Gibsons association and Mrs. Tidball, sec-  retaryrtreasurer. Bernel Gordon  of Sechelt is first vice-president  and Ewart McMynn of Gibsons  second  vice-president.  Executive members are W. B.  Clendinning, Gibsons; Harvey  Hubbs, Selma Park; Normaa  Watson, Sechelt; John Wood,  Gibsons and J. S. Browning of  Wilson   Creek.  Mr. Payne in his talk told how  under the Conservative administration veteran pensions had  been raised 20 percent; veteran  allowances had been increased  and qualifications for 'pensions  or allowances had been made  more practical.  .  A Canadian Coastal Projective?  service had been formed taking  in the department of transport,  RCI.1P, fisheries boats an:i naval  craft, tying the;n. into <jfne communications system.- Some ships  ���areYhoW' in -service ���iflcludivvg. th_.  RCMP craft at Gibsons and  others are to be built.  He  ^pointed    to   improvements  made    in   Gibsons    breakwater,  making a  good   safe   and sound  shelter;   improvement   of  RCMP  accommodation   at   Gibsons   aad  Sechelt   and  added   the  fact   he  was  hoping  for  a   third RCMP  detachment   in   Pender  Harbour  area     this    summer.     Arrangements for  obtaining this  are in  the  hands  of  the  provincial  attorney-general, he  said.  ���    Postal   route    extensions   and  new routes had been established  and the opening of Garden Bay  and Jervis Inlet post offices had  been  achieved.  He hoped  for a  new    Gibsons   post   office    this  summer.  On marine requirements, he  said that wherever improvement  is needed something will be done.  Garden Bay wharf is to be replaced with floats. As regards  Sechelt's breakwater, government policy will have to change  and he is fighting for this.  On the Columbia power issue.  Mr. Payne supported the federal policy of not allowing export  of power. He would not sta::d for  a sell-out, he said.' He would  sooner be licked than support a  power giveaway to the United  States, he added. Mr. Bennett  hadn't a soul in the world who  would pay five mills for B.C.  power.  Mr. Tidball irt introducing Mr.  Payne noted the lethargy among  the public as regards politics. He  urged all to have some party affiliation no matter what political philosophy they have, if  they want to retain a democratic  system.

We  must still be prepared for large  numbers of costly new cases and  must be "ready to meet the needs  of-previous cases for many years  to come," Dr. T. Calder of West  Vancouver told the Poliomyelitis, and Rehabilitation Foundation executive at a recent meeting.  Showing the need for continuing assistance to previous. cases,  Dr.  Cader pointed out that  "in  1961 when British Coumbia hap-  ported, 140-polio cases appealed  pily had only five new cases re-  to the Kinsmen sponsored Poliomyelitis and Rehabilitation Foundation for aid.

Men who volunteer  The history of the Gibsons area volunteer firemen as published  In this issue is no doubt the story of many volunteer fire departments  slot only in Gibsons area but in most small centres across Canada.  Starting from hand-me-downs there is now a fire department of  two halls and three trucks and something like about 22 men on call  whenever fire strikes.  They fight fires and use the inhalator without a second thought  when an alarm is sounded. They do not ask for pay. Naturally they  would like it but there is the realization the area cannot afford it.  JVevertheless it does need fire protection.1  Because they receive no pay and ask for none is all the more  reason why householders and businessmen of Gibsons fire area should  ���come forward willingly and without prompting and fulfill whatever  demands are made for membership iii therfire association/Funds'  'Of this association are the life-blood of the fire department. Donations  :&elp as well.  Memberships, paid up and donations all help to keep fire departments operating. The firemen want to operate as efficiently as  Jthey can. The public should also be efficient and keep the firemen  operating at peak efficiency. Even where taxes help out, as they do  .in Gibsons, assistance by a generous public helps raise the spirit of  &he firemen to do their best, no matter what danger is involved.  It should also be kept in mind .that an efficient fire department  keeps insurance rates low. Fire departments exist at Pender Har-  .bour, Sechelt, Gibsons and. Port Mellon. Without them life would be  Jhazardous. Think it over!  Jimmy Gardiner  James Garfield Gardiner, farmer; premier of Saskatchewan  1926-29;  federal minister of agriculture 1935-57.  In those few words from the Gardiner biography in the Encyclopedia Canadiana there is a great deal of Canadian history. Hon.  James G. Gardiner was buried a few days ago but his adult lifetime,  .from. teaching in a Lemberg, Sask., school until his defeat when the  .Diefenbaker Conservative government swept the Liberals out of office, is a matter of record. While not much taller than five foot three  5ie will go down in history as an agricultural giant.  -Generally speaking few persons admitted they voted for Jimmy  ���vSa-cfliner but he always managed to have a commanding majority  eaxcept in one instance when a hybrid government placed him in opposition: in Saskatchewan.  He was a hard man to pin down when it came to making political statements. He could make a. statement, explain the statement,  add to the explanation, give a re-capitulation and still leave the issue  ���open to doubt as to what it meant.  As a constituency worker he was tops. Above his desk in his home  3ie had a map of his constituency with each farmhouse blocked out  .and with it the names of all occupants and their ages. He knew when  .���riomeone was coming of voting age and made sure where that vote  'sscould go.  .He ran a tight organization, one which became so tight, that to-  vwsr&s the end of the Second World War it had become hide-bound  -;wifh the result there was heavy falling-away of party support. At  ithat time Mr. Gardiner- was a federal minister but he still held the  .reins in the provincial political field.  The bad days of the '30s in Saskatchewan saw emergence of the  ^Prairie Farm Rehabilitation organization. It was one of Jimmy Gar-  -diner's schemes to help the farmer. It worked, because today there  sire more places available for the retention-of water than ever before and better farming methods have  reduced  drought damage.  If one desired to explain Mr. Gardiner in a few words he could  ��e called a mighty atom in agriculture.  Some people get there by pull, others by push.  *       *       *  Guess they call 'em window envelopes because they contain bills  that give us a pane.  DESTRUCTIVE  SMALL  CHILD  What boy has not had some  Experience in playing the vandal. In David Walker's "Sandy  was a Soldier's Boy" in the  Very first chapter, the author  tells of a young*.-lad, exploring  tin the woods, who comes upon  a grey squirrel perched on the  corner of a green-house roof,  .fclsbk-.g; a baiby bird. The father  and mother birds were-squawking and diving at the marauder,  but the grey squirrel ignored  fcheir protests. Sandy decided to  teach thr; murdeirjed a leisson.  Taking iout a sling from his  sporran pocket, hie fitted it with  a little stone. Although he took  careful aim, twice he missed  the squirrel. The third time  Sandy was sure he would hit  [him;! But unfortunately the  fotone from hisi sling again failed to hit 7 the target. Instead,  it smashed the top centre pane  of the window of the greenhouse.  Without stopping to reflect;  Sandy quickly aimed and broke  every single pane, twenty-  tsevfeh in all. A sort of madness possessed him.  He didn't get off without be*  ting caught and this is) one of  the most enjoyjable stories for  members of your family of any  age. Buy it for your home book  shelf. As a reader gets to know-  Sandy better, assurpr.ee is  given that one -acit of destrue-  livencss does not transform   a  boy ''ratio a juvenile delinquent.  Very small children often ua-  ��nltentiionalJy break things.  They are full of energy, curious and sometimes awkward.  ���Mothers save themselves a lot  of grief if they' put away valuables, easily, broken vases a. d  ornaments when their children  are still at this stage. At the  same time, a '-.hild. should learn  from experience that as far as  possible he must repair or try  to replace what he has damag-  ' ed. y.  Ca/re of property, his own  and other people's is learned  gradually. It is not a virtue  a chiM inherits! In most urban  communities, houses are near  each othier, and home owners  take pride in the appearance  ot�� their lawns and flowers.  Parents should 'he'lp Junior  realize that they wish to be  neighbors. Thus the rule: "Do  pot trespass on a neighbors  jpropferty.'.Wait until you are invited ��� and be careful of other  peoples belongings."  A child is .not as deliberate  pr as careful as imost adults.  His alctions are often impulsive  and hasty and desrtructiveness  is frequently innocent and unintentional. Sometimes, his  curiosity urges 'him to take  apart -an article /such as an  alarm clack to siee how it  works. He cannot put it together again ��� and piossibly a  repair man cannot leither!  . Answer  his questions  about  Letters to the editor  Editor: After, thinking on  ���this subject for many years and  talking it over, with many people, I decided to .wfrilte .-to you  and perhaps find out what you  and other people think about  'it. I am talking about our pre-!  sent system of financing our  echctofe, and the building of  hospitals. No doubt it was the  only w'alyj that seemed practical  (ait the time it was first started,  ���but to me it is now as out of  date and obsolete as the hor_ie  and buggy on one of our new  freeways. Why?  First of all--.I think taxes  should be based and levied on  the ability to pay. If a person  has not enough income to live  decently and pay taxes they  should -never .lose their home  ���because of inability to pay his  or her taxes. We are living in  what is supposed to be a civiliz-  - ed Christian -demrocra''cy ~and if  this is so such a thing should  never happen. 7  Secondly/, why saddle it all  on the land? Our schools and  hospitals are for the use of,all  people and bur costs of hospitalization are the same for all.  Then why saddfle the cosrt of  construction pn the home owner?  Everyone knows that here on  ���the (Sunshine Coast we havte  -many people who are living on  small fixed incomes, who  through their own efforts have  provided themselves with a  home in which to spend their  late years. This situation is no  doubt common to (many areas.  Now, with the forming of a  hospital district, and the great  need for more schools, they  will find the inorjeased taxes a  real burden. This has been  brought home to many by the  receipt of their assessment notices in the last rfew days.  Is there a remedy? I think  so. There is only one fair way  to collect these taxes, and that  is from a direct income tax. No  doubt we would hear a howl  from many who.have good in-  i rrr.es but pay no land tax, but  that does not make it wrong or  unfair.  It is also hard to understand  why school boards, hospitals,  PTA organizations and especially the Teachers. Federation,  Which is composed of supposedly well educated men and women, do not do some unselfish  constructive research work to  find a more equitafble way to  raise the money they are always asking for. Could it be  that many of them are not  home owners?  I know a change of this sort  Gems of Thought  The devotion -of thought to  an honest achievement makes  the  achievement possible. ���  ���Mary Baker Eddy.

Editor: I am finding the Coast  News a very interesting local  paper and it provides one way  to know what.is going on, on  Sechelt  Peninsula.  I remember the chap (A.J.C.)  who gave you the information on  opal mining in Australia. It was  intensely interesting to us as we  were both in Australia. Since  then we have read many books  about Australia.  Last Christmas I gave one of  cur grandsons a book called The  Opal Seekers by Ray Harris. It  speaks of the dreadful ~ tirtie -cattle ranchers had during a very'  bad drought and how one very  old gentleman, a pioneer, was  very sick when a native of Australia discovered a water geyser  under a rock because he had bare  feet and could feel the vibrations  right through the very thick covering. It was the means of'saving thousands of cattle and made  many people very happy including the old gentleman who got  well. The story has a beautiful  ending.  We also read a book written by  A Trooper in the horse police  like the RCMP. The book was  called Bad Medicine and concerned a native who was a tracker. He helped the trooper in his  work and saved the trooper's  life on one auspicious occasion.  I gave this book along with  others to the Merchant Seamen's  Home.  Anyone interested could find it  there. It was another wonderful  story for men and boys, teaching  them that our native friends car.  be helpful and useful in many  unexpected ways:  Happy New Year for 1962. May  it be your happiest and most  successful  year.  ��� Mrs. Edward Black.  how things are made- Perhaps  (there is an old useless watch  or clock which he could be allowed _o examine; Sometimes  <a library 'book can be found explaining how mechanical things  operate.

WRAPPING IT UP  Packaging of tide nation's  commlodities depends on a continuous flow of wood from forests. In grocery, drug, department and other stores, the shop-.  per finds his needs attractively  packaged in paper, cellophane  and various forms of container-  board that bad its 'origin in the  woods. '  In sharp contrast to pickle-  barrel and bulk commodity  days, when food and other products had little protection as  they moved from manufacturer through wholesaler to retailer and finally the ultimate consumer, today's goods complete  the cycle factory-fresh, factory-  packaged.

The ex-Granthams pump, engine and trailer were overhauled and painted, making its first  appearance to the public on Parade Day, Aug. 16, 1947.  At this  time the first discussions concerning a fire hall were made  between the ratepayers and firefighters.  In February 1948 a firehaJl  committee of five, Eric Inglis,  Cliff Leach, Dick Fitchel, Ben  Knight and W. Skellet were appointed by the ratepayers to  draw up plans for the new hall.  This, hall was to be located adjacent to the old phone office.  During the winter of 1948-43,  firefighters, ratepayers and the  village commission, although  agreeing generally on the building plans, could not see eye to  eye on the site. Finally the coun-  ��� cil in February 1949, allocated  $1,500 for the. new hall to be built  next to the pump house, it being  understood that part of the hall  would be used as a storage area  I  BEST QUALITY SHOES  Marine  Men's  Wear  LTD.

Unfortunately disputes over ^the  hall design postponed final approval by the commission until  late 1949, when representatives  of the firefighters presented a  plan drawn and designed by Dick  Fitchett and Norm MacKay with  the approval' of the brigade and  fire marshall's office. This plan  was to be large enough to house  two full size trucks, and to have  a recreation room in the upper  part. With consent of the commission and the prospect of a  equipment in sight, interest de-  good fire hall complete with, good  veloped and work was started in  the spring of 1950 on the present hall. - 7:  *>**> "f *t" ..   . ��� ���   ���    7 "  In January 1950 Cliff Leach-became the second chief recognized by  the village  fathers, Eric  Inglis having resigned in Decern-.,  ber 1949. Due to ill health Leach  was  forced to  retire in  March  and Wiif' Gray  became, the vil-::  lage's  third 7chief. In April, the  commission   took   out  insurance  for 18 volunteers: which was later amended to 22. Also, in 19507  the first fire alarm was installed.."This alarm  came from.: the  defunct Granthams Brigade', iahd  was installed on the roof of the  Shell gas station. i  The hall construction was  started in May, due to the soil  conditions the foundations took  almost six months to complete  and another six months to make  the hall habitable, but still far  from complete. During this time  each member had given up one -  or two evenings a week'and every Sunday, weather permitting. .  -Meetings 7 and practices had  been held at the Gibsons Building Supplies during the construction period. On January 11, 1951  the first meeting was held in the  new hall. The Coast News of  March 8, 1951 reported as follows: "Our Volunteer Fire Brigade under Fire Chief Wilfred  ��� Grey is something of which every Gibsonite can be proud.  "To the 18 man department  this village owes much and we  predict it will owe very much  more.  #    *    *  "This firehall will last as a  momenta of their industry and  thoughtfulness. The machinery  within, every time it moves to a  new fire, will be a mobile reminder of their industry and activity on behalf of us.  "In an.undertaking such as our  brigade, it is hard to place any  major amount of credit on one  man. This Volunteer Fire Brigade of ours is truly a growth of  co-operation."  k Once, installed in their new hall  the firefighters' formed a committee 7 to investigate the purchase of a fire truck. Along with  the co-bperatibn of. the-commission and, speedy action by the  committee" a/.truck was purchased and driven into the hall earls  in  February,   y    Yi:  WiihYcohcerted. efforts of the  firemenyworkingY three nights a  . week this Ybare skeleton of a  truck became Gibsons . first mo-  . bile. fire fighting' apparatus complete Twith pumping unit, 300 gallon' reservoir,--:.' hose racks and  eqtiipinerit "lockers.

Wilf Gray resigned at this  time and Norm MacKay was elected to lead the firefighters but  because of business obligations  declined the position. John Bun-  yan hecame chief in the summer of 1951.  Because of a tragic drowning  in June 1952, a general need was  felt for emergency first aid  equipment. The firemen under  chief Bunyan offered their services as a fund raising agency,  and donated the first $25 to get  the ball rolling.  As a result of the generous .response of the public the Resus-  citator Fund went over the top  about a month after the firemen  started their campaign, thereby  enablfing '.he purchase of the  best of life saving equipment.  Shortly after that, .the word brigade was dropped, in favor of  Gibsons Volunteer Fire Department.  1953 saw Fred Feeney installed as the sixth chief of the department. .During (he year the  interior of the hall was: almost  completed. It should be noted  here that frontj.... the beginning of  the excavation to the present  time not "one cent of:.the taxpayers' money pas been spent for  labor on the hall, or for the equipment.      ,   ��� ,> ���*  '��� ��� .,   '���'���    ''..'

The Bal, Block  loss was $200,000 and the Hague  home loss about $15,000.  was .completed and the interior  painted. This year saw the purchase of the present % ton GMC  first aid and small fire truck.  During January,   1955,   a fund  was started for the purchase of  a new truck as the old one was  requiring more  and more'main-  .   tenance.   However,  it was  later  decided to keep  the  truck  and  install, a  new motor.

Also dur-i  ing 1955 the first major attempt  by the firemen to form a Fire  Improvement district took place,  but met with "little response from  the, surrounding community. The  village commission of that year  also  passed   a   motion  refusing  to  allow the. department to  attend*  fires   outside   the   village  boundaries,   except   if   approval  was given by .a commissioner.  Bob Wilson become chief in  , July 1955,_ when Fred Feeney resigned owing to business pressures.  Nov. .5,/1955 was a black day  for the volunteers as the firehall  itself was the scene of a conflagration caused by a faulty battery charger. Damages amounted to nearly $2,500, of which  $1,500 was to the building and  $1,000 to equipment. However,  the hall was repaired through the  concerted efforts of the men.  1956 proved a quiet year for  the department. Membership lagged considerably for the first few  months because of the ban on  answering fires outside the village as the majority of the firemen lived in the outside areas.  Interest was developed again in  the fall with the arrival of the  fire marshall's unit and a second  attempt to organize a Fire Improvement District.  Fred Feeney became chief for  the third time and immediately  proposed. that the village commission investigate the possibility of buying an Air Force fire  truck that was on the market  through Crown. Assets. Corporation. This truck, the present five  ton 1939 International fire truck,  was purchased in January 1957.  In an effort to advance the  fire protection area outside the  village of Gibsons, Chief Feeney  and a delegation of the fire department sought help of the village fathers to allow an organized fire fighting force to acquire  by outright purchase or by lease  the old fire truck now used as  a standby truck. Although ex-,  pressing sympathy with the objective ojf the firemen^ the commission explained that under the  Municipal Act their hands were  tied.

The  beginning of the annual commission dinners for * the volunteers  which have been very much appreciated, also started in 1957.  On becoming registered under  the Societies Act and being incorporated as the Gibsons and  Area Fire Department, the firemen called the first general  public meeting on March 15, 1958  at which 60 interested persons  attended. The call for ' volunteers to sign for future fire protection service saw 75 applications taken out. Membership to  obtain the service cost $5 a year.  The firemen announced they had  donated from their own financial  resources $250 towards the purchase of a fire truck.  Officials for the first year  were: Fred Feeney, president;  Bill Scott, vice-president; YCliff  Mahlman, secretary; Dick Keri-  dall, treasurer. The area of coverage was set at Langdale subdivision on the north, Seaview  Cemetery on the . west, Gower  Point on the south and Howe  Sound on the east.  In April the village commission offered the old fire truck to,  . the' area for ��250 which was immediately accepted. Will i a in  Weinhandl offered the use of the  building on his property to house  the fire truck. Clarence Sicotte  donated his services to bulldoze  the area and move the building  closer to the North Road. By the  end of May 200 associate memberships had been taken out.  At 12:30 a.m. on July 29, 1958,  the alarm called the firemen to  the worst fire in the history of  the  force.   A  nearby   telephone  operator, Mrs. Ethel Bryant, on  hearing a crackling sound looked out and saw Bal's Block, one.  of Gibsons landmarks, burst into  flames.   Firemen    fought   three  hours  to confine the blaze  that.  threatened  to  wipe out the  en:  tire   village,   during,  this   time  Pprt Mellon, Sechelt and the For-: ���  estry departments were called on  for    assistance.    At    one    stage  there were seven fire trucks on  the scene with 1,200 feet of Port  Mellon's   hose   and  all  of  Gibsons   hose  put into action.   The  major fire was not out until 7:30  a.m. and mopping up operations  took  another 12 hours.  Damage  was estimated at $200,000.:  Shortly after this catastrophe  a Ladies Auxiliary to the Gibsons  and Area Volunteer Fire, Depart.-;,  ment was formed with-23 paid  up members. These ladies were  to plan ways and means to raise  funds for the personal benefit  and needs of the firemen. However, after three or four meetings disbanded in 1959" with the  funds raised turned over to the  firemen to be used as they saw.  fit. .-.���'������''������: ..,  ��   ���# ... *     ; :'  A fund started by the Coast:  News to assist firemen who suf-  ' t. fered loss of or damage to clothing during the Bal Block fire was  closed out in August, with $277  collected.-This combined with  S123 donated by the Women's Association of the Gibson -Memorial United Church, replaced the  damaged- clothing; leaving'".. sufficient funds to purchase ,3,500  feet of 1U" rubber hose7'from  Crown Assets.

This was truly an amazing accomplishment, something the people outside Gibsons  village must  be proud of.  ����a *fc�� td* ���  ^ f   *"* .TV*. ���>     ���  The annual meeting to - elect  the area executive was .held in  February. The old 7 executive,  consisting mainly of; firemen,  stepped down allowing the people themselves to run the affairs  for 1959. Officers/were elected: 7  G. Cooper; president; W. Weinhandl, vice-president: R; Kendall, treasurer; W. Wiren,; secretary.  In April the area fire department received a parcel of land  on the North Road, donated by  Mr. V. Daoust. Work parties  were immediately called to prepare the ground for the future  No. 2 hall. Actual building construction  started   early  in   July  and was completely closed in by  the end of October. The building is of concrete block construction with a truss roof and aluminum cladding. .The hall has  since been insulated and a heating" unit installed. Once again  this hall is a fine tribute to the  people of the area, and particularly the firemen.  Due to the fire protection services given by the volunteers  the fire insurance rates for Gibsons village were lowered to an  all time low of $7.50 per thousand.  The year 1959 also saw the  firemen offer their services for  police work on Hallowe'en which  helped to keep down disturbances. This has now become an annual affair.  The first steps towards purchasing a new fire siren to be  used on, the proposed dial phone  change over< were discussed by  the village commission in November. The unit finally purchased is called System capacity  six volunteer phones. This system is composed of a siren  mounted on the fire, hall No. 1  roof and the old Granthams siren  mounted adjacent to the Sunnycrest service station.: Six phones  located throughout the village  and area are directly connected  to. each other and to the two sir  ens.  The   new  siren and phone  system was tested on Feb. 1, 1960  Bill Scott was returned as  chief early in 1960 for his second term. The year itself had  the usual fire and inhalator calls  but because both halls were virtually completed more emphasis  was placed on training: fire  fighting, first aid and rescue  work all under the able guidance  of  Cliff Mahlman.  With Scott again as chief, 1981  was one of the quietest on record for fire and inhalator calls  having had only one chimney fire  and one major house fire since  December 1960. The inhalator  was called out three times including one  rescue   trip.  The firemen continued their  extensive training program besides maintaining every hydrant  and standpipe both inside and  outside the village. It should be  noted here that throughout the  years the volunteers have maintained and overhauled, if necessary, all pieces of equipment  whether it be stationary or mobile.  *    *    *  One feature of the department  not mentioned so far is the social  club which was known for years  as the Smokey Stover Club and  is now part of the Fire Services.  This club was formed in December 1950 primarily to provide en-  tertainmeht for the firemen after  their practices, however, although  serving its prime function it has  Coast News,  Jan. 18, 1962.       7  also sponsored the local little  league and men's league baseball teams and numerous charity funds which have occurred  over the years. All money obtained by the club has been  through donations, fines to firemen, or from dances, no public  monies from either the village  taxpayer or area. resident have  been received.  This organization has often  been referred to as the heart of  the department.  Finally to close out this short  history, a tribute to the Volunteer Firemen of Gibsons and  area ��� those who have shivered through winter night fires,  canvassed for funds or built halls  and equipment to make the department successful* an outstanding monument to the spirit  of co-operation and good will.
