They followed the model utilized by the East Smoky Legion Branch No. 89 from DeBolt and received a favorable response to their application for a Charter. Therefore, the West Smoky Legion Branch No. 244 came into existence on March 4, 1949.

The LaValley’s were early pioneers in the Beznason area having arrived from International Falls, USA in 1917. Dusty, born on May 30, 1981, is the 3rd child of Bernice and Grant LaValley of Bezanson. Dusty has two sisters; Laura and Amanda and one brother, Trevor. They lived on the family farm where they raised horses. The children all attended Bezanson Consolidated School followed by High School at Sexsmith. Most young boys, at one time or another, have dreamt about joining the rodeo and Dusty was no exception. By the age of 10, he decided he wanted to be a bareback bronc rider. At age 14, Dusty crawled on his first bucking horse and knew immediately that this was what he wanted to do for a career.

The Bezanson Bog, the local cross-country race held at the Old Bezanson Townsite, has became a huge community event for the hamlet and surrounding areas over the past 9 years. Racers from all over, including Peace River, Tumbler Ridge, Grande Cache and Valleyview, all came to run the muddy trail and try to conquer Buffalo Hill (a steep climb alongside the fence on the north end, which was not used in some of the previous years). This event has become very popular, but for now, it will have to come to an end.
