History / Biographical
The Midsummer Music Festival has been held annually in Smithers by the Bulkley Valley Folk Music Society since 1984. The Festival was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19, but the 'Midsummer Memories' event was held instead, involving pop-up performances along Main Street from late morning until early afternoon on Saturday, July 4th. Social distancing protocols were in effect, preventing large crowds from forming. In addition, a display was set up at the Bulkley Valley Museum with slideshow displays of photos from years past as well as posters, t-shirts, and other Midsummer memorabilia. This poster was displayed on the door of the Central Park Building over the July 4th weekend.
Custodial History

History / Biographical
Both Marjorie and her husband were interested in the Arts and began organizing events in the community. The couple first collaborated with the Swiss Club to present a 2-day Midsummer Night Festival in 1955. The event was held on the Thens’ farm, and ran for 3 years. Subsequently, in 1959, Marjorie and Tadek, along with others interested in acting, formed The Bulkley Valley Players. While Marjorie performed in many of the plays, she also worked as a producer.
In 2001, Marjorie moved to White Rock, B.C.
Marjorie also took an active role on the Library Board, and the Arts and Recreation Commission. Further, she, along with her husband, Jo and Gerry Brinkman, Jack and Gladis Burry, George Zuckerman, and Don and Hilda Bedows, formed the Concert Association. In 1972, Marjorie worked with a group to form the Smithers Art Gallery Association and open a gallery space. As well, she wrote a weekly column called “Downtown” for the Interior News, which highlighted local Arts, and had a 21-year run in the paper. In 1973, Marjorie petitioned to save the Central Park Building, which the Town of Smithers wished to demolish, so as to repurpose it as an arts and culture space.
Marjorie Then immigrated to Halifax from England in 1948 with her husband, Tadek, and children Vanda and Olza. They eventually moved to Smithers, B.C., to farm, and had four additional children: Carol, Jan, Gavin, and Alec.
