Valley Voices talks to Fred Pepin and Mary Anne-MacDougall

The Langley Heritage Society continues its work capturing local history and stories via an interesting and engaging podcast series called Valley Voices.

For January’s edition Langley Heritage Society president Fred Pepin, tells us about the over 2,400 irrigation wells he drilled on farms across the Fraser Valley and the well-witcher he employed who boasted a 90 per cent success rate.
