Stories of a frozen Fraser

Stories of a frozen Fraser River and snowy and cold winters will be told in a New Westminster Historical Society presentation at the public library on Wednesday, Dec. 19.

The program will feature a collection of winter stories with tales of extreme cold, heavy snowfalls and slippery conditions as well as the Fraser freezing so solid it was impassable for ships. Historian Archie Miller will also tell colourful anecdotes about early Christmases in the Royal City.

The free program will be held in the library auditorium starting at 7:30 p.m.
