Barriere Curling Club now open and hosting a number of events

A Flea Market was hosted by the Barriere Curling Club on Saturday, Aug. 29 in the Barriere Curling Rink. The Market was also accompanied by a Barriere Lions Club Pancake Breakfast held in the parking lot, with both events reporting in as being successful fundraisers for the community.

“Thank you to all that attended and purchased Flea Market items or enjoyed a pancake breakfast,” said Curling Club president Susan Bondar, “Everyone adhered to the COVID- 19 protocols and the events ran smoothly. The North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association also sold their 50/50 raffle tickets which is a fundraiser for the organization.”

Bondar noted the Barriere Curling Club will soon be holding their AGM on Friday, Sept. 11, at the Curling Rink.

“Please come and celebrate the past year and hear what the Club is doing for the upcoming season,” said Bondar, “If you are new to the community, curling is a great way to meet new people and feel a part of Barriere.”

Next on the Curling Club calendar will be a fundraising Bingo on Sunday, Sept. 13 at the Curling Rink. There will be limited seating due to Provincial COVID-19 protocols. Doors will open at 12 noon and Bingo will start at 1 p.m.

“There have not been any Bingos held for quite awhile in the community,” says Bondar, “Come out and enjoy another event in Barriere.”
