Harvest social

This sub-series consists of photographic material that details the events and the individuals present at the Harvest social. The Harvest social is the annual fundraiser for the Hudson’s Hope Museum and includes a supper, auction, and presentation. During the course of the Packers on the Trail project the Harvest social was Bedaux themed, the presentation included a slide show and readings from the various diaries associated with the expedition. When Bedaux came back through Hudson’s Hope, a baseball game was held between the boatmen and the cowboys and this game was replicated on the day of the Harvest Social between the Cowboys families and friends and the town’s people of Hudson’s Hope. This sub-series is arranged into two files: baseball game, and fund raising event.

Funding

This series consists of the acknowledgment of the financial support from government agencies that helped make this project such a success. The BC150 Heritage Legacy Fund (BC150HLF) was the main contributor with additional assistance from the Writers' Union of Canada. The BC150HLF was supported by the Province of BC to help communities celebrate the 150th anniversary of the founding of the province. It financed projects that highlighted BC’s History from 1858 to 2008 and as the Bedaux expedition was a marker for BC history, a grant application submitted by museum manager, Rosaleen Boardman, was successful. The Writers' Union of Canada, that works to improve the position of Canadian writers, contributed travel assistance to authors to attend the exhibit opening. The forms for the grant requests are included in this sub-series. This sub-series is arranged into two files: BC150 Legacy fund, and Writers' Union of Canada funding.
