Letter from Jenny Jardine to Echo-Marie Fawks (nee Betts) and her husband, Don - April 7, 1995

Letter from Jenny Jardine to Echo-Marie Fawks (nee Betts) and her husband, Don, written on April 7, 1995. In the letter, Jenny recounts her and her family's life living in the Whistler Valley between the 1900s and the 1940s - at Rainbow Lodge, Mons, Alpha Lake, and finally at 34 1/2 Mile [Function Junction area]. Stories she recounts include their relationship with the Philips and Harry Horstman, hikes on Sproatt Mountain and to Cheakamus Lake, mail delivery, schooling, scavenging berries along the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, and Howard Gebhart and her brothers' serving in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II. She finishes the letter talking about her recent trip to Northern BC, the Yukon, and Alaska. The letter was enclosed in an envelope with notes written by Louise Smith regarding the letter's custodial history. The letter was given to Louise by Echo-Marie (Louise's cousin), who lived with her husband, Don, in Whistler from c. 1990 to c. 2012.

After many blank pages, there is an entry from December 19-28, 1981 recounting a large holiday get-together with the extended Jardine family in the Lower Mainland (each couple travelling from several places in BC to join). The following page is an entry written by Jenny on February 22, 1982 describing another large family get-together with the Jardine clan at a nursing home to celebrate Lizzie Neiland's 100th birthday with some champagne.
