Walhachin gets new entry sign

After years of doing without, the historic little town of Walhachin gets a bright, beautiful new highway entrance sign.

The Trans Canada Highway recently became home to the much anticipated signage to showcase the entrance to a community that tells an incredible, yet typical, tale of how our little slice of Heaven on Earth took shape as the Gold Rush became the foundation for a great number of communities not unlike Walhachin.

I would like to take this time to thank all who played a role in making this happen.

Beginning with my initial conversations with the Ministry of Transportation’s Todd Hubner and Paula Cousins regarding the Spences Bridge closure the process unfolded in impressive fashion.

My concerns over the Walhachin sign project were not only heard but Paula Cousins took immediate action to set the machine in motion to make this project happen.

Site visits, survey, permitting, installing just in time for our Gold Country Fam Tour…it all fell into place because of constant communication and lots of folk who just cared about this small, yet significant project for the community of Walhachin.

Thanks again to all who helped make this happen. It was truly a team effort!
