Wonderful place to live
I moved to Chetwynd about 2 yrs ago after living in Prince George my whole life, and it was the best decision I have ever made. Chetwynd is a quiet, safe town populated by some of the kindest people alive. The job market may be struggling right now (as it is everywhere!), but there is no end to the helpful tips and suggested opportunities from area residents. The beautiful scenery and civic pride, along with genuinly caring people have made me feel like I belong here. Even when I've been visiting my hometown, coming through the Pine Pass towards Chetwynd always feels like coming HOME.

We attended many hours of Day 1, 2009, and were quite impressed. Pretty much in awe of the talent. We would like to suggest that your web site show pictures for each carver at the start of Day 1, End of Day 1, End of Day 2, etc. ALSO -- we are not going to be able to attend any other days so we would hope that your web site will show the finished piece of art for each artist. If not, I do hope you take this suggestion to heart as to many who can only attend a day or two they would like to see the finished product. Hope to see it this year. Thank you.

Chetwynd History
Hello from Lincolnshire, UK. I have been researching my Family History (as retired people seem to do) and have uncovered my g-grandfather, Thomas Williams. My family has been moving East in Britain for over 200 years, from Wales via Herefordshire, Shropshire, Stafordshire and Nottinghamshire, to my own present location near the North Sea in Lincolnshire. Thomas was born in CHETWYND ASTON, now and for centuries a sleepy, tiny place near Newport, Shropshire. I intend to travel there when our British winter allows. (not of course as severe as your Canadian winters, but it does have its moments!) My inquiry concerns the name of Chetwynd, B.C. Is there any history of your town available to view and print? I would be very interested to dicover any connection with Chetwynd UK. I have a little history I can share, e.g. the fact that ggf Thomas was a Blacksmith working for the Chetwynd-Talbot family, who were the Earls of Shrewsbury. The Chetwynd name resounds throughout the area, with several hamlets and villages carrying the title. I would be grateful if someone could point me to a connection, or a source I could look into. I was in B.C. myself as a younger man in 1982 - I toured the B.C. side of the Rockies and received wonderful hospitality from everyone I met. Regards to all. Thank you Bob Williams.

My husband and I just returned home to Salmon Arm from a visit to Tumbler Ridge via Chetwynd on business. I have never been through Chetwynd and was so impressed with the cleanliness of your community, with tree lined streets, chainsaw carvings dotted around the town, open spaces and bright skies. I used to write to your resident Marg Allen (or Allan) about our Section B Welsh Ponies. My farm was Heartland Farm in Victoria. Is she still living in Chetwynd?

Moving to Chetwynd
Hello all, Me and my boyfriend are moving to Chetwynd at end of the month. We where just wondering what there is to do, I see there are lots of nice trails both of us are big into the outdoors so I think Chetwynd is going to work great for us. Also I was wondering what the job market was like there, my boyfriend already got a job he will be the new manger at the new Pomeroy Hotel but me I have not yet found anything. I am a real estate paralegal by trade and its what im working at here in Grande Prairie, But if any of you guys had any idea about where is a good place to apply that would be great! Anyway, I guess I will be seeing most of you guys soon! Chow!

My yellow & white 1956 Ford.
I lived my teenage years in Chetwynd from 1960 to 68, and then again back from Art School in Nelson, in 1970. I graduated from Chetwynd High in 1966. In fact, our family lived for a year upstairs in the old Post Office building, when it was on the highway that is now the Chetwynd Museum, located up the hill. The upstairs front window you see in the museum photographs was my bedroom window. I worked at just about every place in town: Canfor, BCRail, Rex Theater, Esso, Chevron, and on and on, but mostly at the Texaco Gas Station, for Ross Foster. My dad, Bill Gardiner, was the first Mayor (then called a Chairman) when Chetwynd was incorporated as a village, in the mid 60's. When I was 17, I bought my first car from a neighbour, George Corrigal, a trainman for BCRail. It was a yellow and white 1956 Ford. I drove the wheels off it, racing it around the area. In fact, I once drove it the 64 miles to Dawson Creek in 37 minutes (you do the math). As far as I know, the only car to ever beat that time (and speed) was a new 1966 Ford Galaxy muscle-car owned by a buddy of mine, Toivo Hapaaranta. He said he did it in 29 minutes, and I believed him. I married Claudia Violato (who graduated in 1967), finished Art School in Nelson, B.C., and then moved to North Vancouver. I worked for 8 years as an advertising and packaging artist, in Vancouver. I did not like commercial art, so I became a real estate agent in 1983, with its usual ups and downs. I was divorced from Claudia in 1991. I turned in my real estate license in 2006, and moved to Courtenay, on Vancouver Island – the beautiful Comox Valley. I will be building a few houses to keep my hand in at real estate. I am now 60 years old. Four years ago, I found a car exactly like my first car, the 1956 Ford, on eBay, in Michigan. I bought the car, and have completed its restoration. In the last 3 years, it has won about 20 awards, at car events, including Best of Show, Best Engine Bay, Best 1956, etc. How is that for going back in time (to Chetwynd)? I hope some of you might remember me, and the "Thunder Road" 1956 Ford. Chuck Gardiner, www.chuckgardiner.com/1956ford.htm.

Re: David Courtoreille
I find that you are making a very meaningless point to the subject. Have you talked to only one person throughout this whole town? Chetwynd is small, that's how it is. I'm sorry that there's no fancy malls, or restaurants. I'm sorry we don't have one of the tallest buildings in the world. No, we don't have the Calgary stampede, so what? At least our air is decent. At least we can see the stars at night, and at least we don't have to worry about criminals running through houses. Small is what we prefer. We don't care how great Calgary is. I've lived here for 15 years now, and I love it. Hey, here's a question for you. WHY are you even at this site if you despise Chetwynd so much?

Cant't wait
Hi Ok i have been reading alot your entries some good some so ....well. I will be moving and i can't wait. We are from the big not so great town of Calgary and whoever thinks that Chetwynd is a Hell hole might want to think again. I drive an hour in traffic to go to work then i dive and hour back. I know some drive to Dawson for work but that is nothing compared to the Deerfoot at 130 clicks per hour. No one is happy to see anyone let alone let you in to merge to your destination. Kids are always in trouble because their parents are never home. Letting someone else raise their kids. Yes the money is great but the cost of living is gettng crazy. Did you know that recently the cost of living has gone up by 6 percent since last April. And did you know that the cost of an average home is well over 400,000.Now to whoever says that Calgary is better than being able to be at home with your kids at night or taking them fishing and creating memories is of their rocker. I know from experience of being one of those families who rarely get to sit down at dinner and talk about our day Worked all day fought traffic and have had to put up with people who are just there to make money and not to do thier job well. For some people being with their kids and looking Their your window and seeing a moose or listening to the bird is a bad thing. But me i prefer that over traffic and daycare. Now that i have ranted i am so looking forward to moving up there again to experience what life is supposed to be.

Hello!!
I lived in Chetwynd off and on from '90 to '98! I attended Dokie Elementary and Little Prairie Elementary. I moved with my family to Portland, OR. We came back the summer of '00 to visit and it was fantastic. I miss the Rec Centre and events Family Fest, which I don't think occurs any more. It would be great to hear back from anyone.

Response to David Courtorielle comments
So David...I think you should think a little bit about yourself and the crowd that you do or used to hang out with here in Chetwynd, because not one person that I know in Chetwynd has a problem with drugs...I know there are people here that do, but not one person in my circle of friends does...maybe its just your friends. By the way, I have lived in Calgary, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Hudson's Hope and Chetwynd and my opinion of this region greatly differs from yours..I bet you can't take an ATV from your house in cow town, and go riding all day with gorgeous scenery and clean air....I bet you would have to load up and drive for some time before you could ride. Actually I know you would have to. Also, you had better do some research on your job oppertunities statistics before you flap your gums, I make more $$ in Chetwynd then I have anywhere else. I am so glad that you will never come back to Chetwynd because I cannot stand people who call towns they don't live in a hell hole. Woo Hoo for Chetwynd and the Peace country! Woo Hoo for one traffic light and no NOISY traffic!

Hello Hometown!
I lived in Chetwynd from birth to age 17. I attended Don Titus, Dokie (which is missing from the site) and the high school. I have since moved on and now live in Massachusetts. I haven't been back to town since 1999, but it doesn't look like its changed too much. This site really brought back some memories. Hi to all my old friends and family who are still in the area.

Great site -I was just wondering how to get the new motocross track on the site. Our club put alot of work into getting it up and running, mostly done by Jason Berlinger, but the track is amazing and offers people of all ages a safe place to ride. Thanks goes out to all the companies that donated equitpment and money or fuel to help us. I think it's a great track and should be added to the site.

My father was 3 years old when my grandfather (the first Ken Melville) loaded his family in the boat, went up the river, and lived in tents, and built Melville Lodge from the ground up. I was born after to my dads second wife whom he met in princton after BC hydro bought the lodge out. I am the youngest of five and would love to to hear stories and memories of my families amazing pioneering life!! I am the youngest of the five children my dad had. To this day any male bore to a melville will be named first Kennedy after my grandfather who pioneered the area! Anyway, respond with stories or anything from the lodge days, because I would love to hear it!! Sincerely, Kennedy Melville IV mikemelville@gmail.com

A BIG THANKS!!!!!
I wanted everyone in Chetwynd to know how much all of us in Tumbler Ridge appreciate the welcome and the reception we got after we were all evacuated from our home.... I know to have an extra 2,000 people in your town can be quite hard to deal with but everyone that we came across was extremely polite, sweet and very understanding.. THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!!!!!!Your mayor and town should be so proud of their citizens.. Again THANKS!

Just wanted to say that my family really enjoyed the Carving Contest. Congradulations to everybody that was in involved. Also congradulations to the winners but there are really no winners because they were all equally wonderful. A proud resident of Chetwynd, BC

Thinking of moving
Hi everyone, what a wonderful job on this website, it gives a lot of information and the pictures are beautiful. We are thinking of moving up there, we are currently in Flin Flon, MB, and I was wondering if someone could give me some info on the cost of living up there. I was wondering what the average price of milk, diapers, hydro, telephone, internet. If someone has some time to email me back and forth it would be greatly appreciated. I'm also curious about the job market and wages. Once again, excellent job on the website, we've been looking at a few places and this website was the most informative. Crystal

Wondering how you are?
I grew up in Chetwynd, and lived there from 1958 to 1989. I still believe Chetwynd to be one of the most scenic places I've ever seen. I would like to hear from anyone who remembers me and would like to get in touch. There must be a few of my old friends still living there.

Nice memories
I worked and lived in or around Chetwynd several times. In the spring of 1961 our crew were the first to stay in the Hydro Motel while we worked on the highway from Sundance to Groundbirch. In 1964 we were at Halfway Lodge (Powder King Ski Hill is near there now), working from West Pine to Hungry Moose Creek. From the spring of 1968 to the fall of 1970 I lived at Moberly Lake and Melville Lodge (where Tudyah Lake Park is now) and worked at Mount Lemoray and Mackenzie. Last time working there was for awhile in 1983, Tumbler Ridge Highway. Lots of good memories.

Hello Chetwynd. It has been quite a long time since you were my stompin' grounds, but even though I've lived in over 26 different cities since then and am now living in Winnipeg as a single father of 4 boys aged 3,5,7,&9, there has never been an opportunity missed by me to boast about our town. The people are the best and I miss it alot. For the young people who live there just remember you usually don't know what you've got 'till it's gone. So hang on to Chetwynd for as long as you can.
