Christmas luncheon served up for students at Barriere Secondary

Community members representing local businesses and government do the honours

The annual Christmas lunch at Barriere Secondary was a grand success with numerous community businesses and service organizations turning out to help prepare and serve up the meal for the students. Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and all the extras quickly filled up the numerous plates presented, and then the meal was topped off with yummy desserts and laughter. Thanks to meal organizer Laura Mairs and all her willing helpers everyone had more than enough to eat. Volunteers from area businesses, services groups, and the community made this event a special opportunity for both adults and youth to interact and get to know each other. Some of those helping represented the District of Barriere, Interior Savings, RCMP, Thompson Nicola Regional District, North Thompson Star/Journal, and the Barriere Lions Club. (Kris Luison photos)
