Former residents of Blue River meet with those living presently in the community during a reunion held during the BC Day long weekend.

Pictured are (l-r) Rosemarie (Werbowsky) Beaton of Westbank, Becca Beaton of Blue River, Diane Werbowsky of Hope, John Beaton of Blue River, and Bob Werbowsky of Hope. The son of Nick and Mary Werbowsky, Bob Werbowsky, now 80 years old, was born in Blue River and left in the early 1960s because of his job with Transmountain.

He and Diane also celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary last weekend. His younger sister, Rosemarie, married Clarence Beaton, John Beaton’s older brother (Clarence passed away about two years ago).

About 150 people, many of them from out of town, attended a barbeque hosted by the Thompson Headwaters (TNRD Area B) services committee and director Willow MacDonald at the Blue River Community Hall on Saturday evening.
