Children’s Christmas Shopping in Barriere is just for them

If you live in the Barriere area and have young children, you might like to take advantage of the Children’s Christmas Shopping event being held on Monday, Dec. 16, and Tuesday, Dec. 17, in Barriere.

Children’s Christmas Shopping is just that, an event where youngsters can attend in a safe environment to do their Christmas shopping for family and friends where even the smallest change purse will suffice.

The event will be taking place in the Fall Fair Hall on Barriere Lakes Road (just a 1/4 mile East of the three-way stop) on both days from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. so that youngsters can attend after school, or come down with family or friends later in the day.

Thanks to the North Thompson Activity Centre for organizing the event, and the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association for donating the hall, this delightful seasonal event will once again be providing area youngsters a fun opportunity to do their own shopping for Christmas.

The North Thompson Activity Centre say they are currently accepting donations of new and gently used items suitable for children to give to Mom and Dad, or Grandma and Grandpa for Christmas. Items can be dropped off at The Ridge, 4936 Barriere Town Road, to the Activity Centre Room (third door on the right), Monday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

If you would like more information, or would like to volunteer and help with the event, please call 250-672-0033.
