History / Biographical
The Bulkley Valley Folk Music Society (BVFMS) is a Smithers-based non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and celebration of folk music within the Valley. It developed out of the Styx River Coffee House, a folk music organization coordinated by George and Norma Stokes in the late 1970s. Marion Rose and Kevin Widen sought to establish a yearly music festival and formed a new organization in order to run it. The BVFMS was officially incorporated in 1984, held its first general meeting on March 19th of that year, and joined the Bulkley Valley Community Arts Council in 1985. It has run the Midsummer Music Festival every year since its inception, with the exception of 2020, in which the smaller Midsummer Memories event was held instead. The Festival includes over 30 acts and draws over 3000 attendees from northwestern BC and beyond. In addition, the Bulkley Valley Folk Music Society holds two annual guitar camps for youth and adults, hosts the BVFMS Coffeehouse from October to April, awards bursaries to students pursuing post-secondary education in music or creative arts, and rents out sound equipment and a CD/DVD duplicator.
Custodial History
Items with accession number 2020.40 were donated to the Museum by Kevin Widen of the BVFMS on October 7th 2020. They were grouped together with 2020.7 to create the Bulkley Valley Folk Music Society fonds on October 8th.
Scope and Content
Fonds consists of a hard drive containing thousands of BVFMS photographs dated between 1984 and 2020.
Arrangement
The photographs on the hard drive have been arranged by donor Kevin Widen, with each year from 1984 to 2020 having its own folder. These folders typically include a small number of ‘selected’ photos, a large number of processed photos, a larger number of unprocessed photos, and sometimes a collection of top photos for the year. For most years, the unprocessed photo files are named beginning with the year, followed by the photographer’s initials, the film roll number, and the frame number. Scans of the BVFMS scrapbooks are included in some of the folders. Years 1984, 1985, 1991, 2007, and 2016-2019 include a selection of photos used in slideshows as well. See 2020/10/06 Note by Kevin Widen (accessions binder) or the ‘About these Photos’ document on the W Drive for further information on the photos.

History / Biographical
Lions Clubs International is a global non-political community service organization originally established in Chicago in 1917. The Smithers chapter of the Club was founded on February 24th 1964 with the sponsorship of the Terrace and Kitimat Lions Clubs. It received its official charter from Lions International on April 11th 1964. The newly-formed Club had 27 charter members and was headed by Harvey MacKirdy as president, Geof Wright and Andy Stalker as vice-presidents, Nick Shaigec as Secretary, and Ed Good as Treasurer. As with all Lions Clubs, it was initially male-only; the first female member, Tracy Rice, joined in 1993. The Smithers Lions Club determined and met community needs, awarded bursaries to high school students, provided children’s activities such as Jam Pail Curling, and raised funds for hospital equipment, recreational facilities, and other causes. In the 1970s the Lions were responsible for the purchase and transportation of a CNR railcar, which served for a time as a Tourist Information Centre and currently (as of October 2020) hosts the 93.9 CICK Radio. The Club also owned the Smithers Lions Den at the Fall Fair grounds. The Smithers Lions Club dissolved in 2020 due to an aging and dwindling membership, having served the community for 56 years. For a list of Smithers Lions Club presidents, see Finding Aid.
