The Barriere Lions Club held a highly successful Pancake Breakfast event over the
three days of the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo this past Labour Day weekend.
A record number of breakfasts were sold each day which resulted in all time high
revenue of just over $10,000, all of which is being donated to the North Shuswap
Wildfire Relief effort. “The tremendous support of the Barriere community, as well as all
the visiting patrons at the fair, made this event a huge success” quoted Barriere Lions
Club President Dennis Farquharson. “The time and effort put into the preparation and
delivery of our 900 plus breakfasts, demonstrates the dedication and resilience of our
local Lions members, to both our community, and to this wildfire relief project. I thank
them one and all.”
While the club will take a short breather to wind down and rest up from the weekends
efforts, planning for the annual December Santa’s Breakfast will begin shortly. Another
wonderful project that the Barriere Lions do for the community of Barriere each year.
The Barriere Lions Club is having fun and working hard to better the local community
and beyond. They hold and assist at local events, build and maintain local
infrastructure, and support local citizens in need. The club is always on the lookout for
good citizens who would like to help better their community and be part of an active
and fun group of volunteers. You can follow them on Facebook (www.facebook.com/
