Approximately 50 volunteers turned out on Friday and Saturday to help set up the new Barriere Elementary playground equipment.

“Everything went very quickly,” PAC president Leesa Genier explained, “most of it was set up by the end of the day on Friday, leaving just some minor items to be done on Saturday.”

On Saturday afternoon, the cement was poured, and on Monday the pea gravel will be brought in and spread around, to complete the project.

“It’s been overwhelming,” stated Genier, “the amount of support, both financial and as volunteers, that this project has received from the community.  The Parent Advisory Council would like to extend a huge ‘Thank You’ to everyone who helped out in any capacity.”
