CiB and volunteer appreciation BBQ

Barriere welcomes the Communities In Bloom judges at the volunteer appreciation barbecue

The Simpcw Drum Group participate in the celebrations.

There was much to celebrate at the Bandshell on Tuesday, July 16 welcoming the Communities In Bloom (CiB) judges and thanking volunteers of the community.

Presentations were made by Bill Kershaw, Director of Area “O”.  On behalf of the TNRD, Kershaw, along with his alternate Frank Gordon. They presented the members of the McLure Wildfire Monument Society with a letter of thanks.  “This year on the 10th anniversary of the 2003 fires,” Kershaw stated, “I would like to recognize the Monument Society.  This group wanted to make sure that the memory of Louis Creek, and what was once there, was preserved.  Also, that the names of the volunteers that rebuilt the homes, the people behind the massive fundraising that helped those in need were remembered.  They also made sure it (the monument) was on the location of the mill that at one time employed more than 200 people.”

After the speeches were done, and the barbecue got underway, the entertainment continued, with the Simpcw Drummers and some traditional games that all were invited to participate in.
