The Community Christmas Banquet was a huge success at the Christian Life Assembly Church the afternoon of Dec. 7 in Barriere. The church reports 210 people came out for the turkey dinner in support of the food bank. The meal was a partnership between the Church and the Barriere Lion’s Club who made a generous donation towards the food and then also served the meal (pictured above).
Twenty-three beautiful centre pieces made by church members were raffled off, and the following businesses donated items to the silent auction which raised $330: Armour Mountain Office Services, Freaky Bead, Timber-Mart, IDA Pharmacy, AG Foods Yvonne’s Flowers, Gifts and Dollar Store, Jill Hayward Photo Memories, and also a number of donations from the Lions and members of the church.
In all, a total of $1330.30 was raised from the event for the Barriere Food Bank.
