Wow....its been quite a summer. It started off busy with travellers coming into town in late May. By mid June we were bursting at the seams with tourists. Early July brought the forest fires, road closures and many evacuees. Having highway 97 closed, many travellers who wouldn't normally come this way, did. A small group of locals put together a Evacuee Comfort Centre to help with the displaced folks. Not only did it give comfort to the evacuees it drew our town together and gave a sense of community. It was incredible.
After the highways reopened, the tourists continued to come. They stayed, they played and they explored what we have to offer.
Now with the changing of the seasons, things are slowly returning to normal. I think McBride did good. We showed what a small town is all about....a community of giving. Well done!

Go outside tonight and look up!

A particularly strong solar flare is heading for Earth, giving a good chance of aurora bright enough to see even in moonlight, and perhaps further south than usual. Visit spaceweather.com for latest details, and look outside any time after dusk.

Are you planning on swimming during this hot weather? LaSalle Lake is a forestry recreation site 46 km west of McBride just east of Crescent Spur off highway 16 that offers free camping. The site has outhouses, picnic tables,small boat launch, swimming doc and beach that leads out to a small scenic lake. There are no motorboats permitted on the lake so it is a perfect destination for kayaking, swimming and fishing for trout. What a great way to spend a weekend or even a day trip!

Robson Valley TourismNever thought we would be so happy to see the rain here in the valley. But due to the fires, we are feeling pretty happy about it. We just hope all the areas of the forest fires are getting rain and plenty of it.

Robson Valley Tourism shared a McBride Evacuee Comfort Centre.

In these stressful times of uncertainty, its good to know there is a place here in McBride that you can find comfort. If you are an evacuee and just need a little support, or to use a washroom or grab a bite to eat. Please go and check out McBride Evacuee Comfort Centre's facebook page.
