History / Biographical
Harry Kruisselbrink was born in the Netherlands in 1941 in the early part of World War II. The family immigrated to Canada in 1951 and lived in Barrett Lake just west of Houston. They moved to Smithers in 1952. Starting in 1955, he spent 40 years working in the communications industry, all of it in northern British Columbia. He met his wife Audrey in 1963; they were married in 1965 and had three children. He retired from the communications industry in 1995. Harry’s interest in local history began in his High School years. His teacher, Lee Curley, was able to convey his enthusiasm for history onto his students, including Harry. At about that same time Harry received a camera as a Christmas gift and since then rarely goes anywhere without it. In 1969, he became a founding member of the Smithers environmental group called SPEC. He joined the local air search and rescue group in 1972. The following year he was elected to Smithers Town Council and served three two-year terms. After retiring from Council, he continued to serve on the Town’s Planning Committee for many years. His wife and he were foster parents for 27 years. Harry was a member of the Smithers’ 60th Anniversary Committee that published the book, “Smithers from Swamp to Village,” written by author Lynn Shervill. Harry has written a number of historical sketches including a book “Smithers – A Railroad Town” and “Beyond the Call of Duty – The Adventurous Life of Rev. F. L. Stephenson”.

History / Biographical
4-H is a U.S.-based network of youth organizations intended to promote citizenship, leadership, responsibility and life skills among young people through experiential learning programs and a positive youth development approach. Founded in 1902, it initially focused on instructing rural youth in farming, agricultural, and home-making practices. 4-H Canada is an independent non-profit organization which has overseen 4-H networks nationwide for over 100 years. Smithers’ local chapter, the Evelyn 4-H Club (then the Evelyn 4-H Beef and Garden Club), was founded on December 6th 1962; the first meeting was held on December 6th of that year at the Lake Kathlyn School. President elected was Don Chapman, Vice President Lorna Chapman, Secretary-Treasurer Gwen Ridennoure. Press correspondent was Yolanda Gyger, Dave Price was club leader, and William Quadros was assistant leader. The Evelyn 4-H Beef Club was formed in 1965 with Bob Storey elected president. Over the years its members have regularly contributed livestock and poultry to be judged at the annual Fall Fair. The club celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1987. As of 2020, it is one of three 4-H clubs in the Bulkley Valley and has projects in raising horses, cows, pigs, sheep, poultry, and rabbits.
