Drive through Lions’ Club Breakfast to join Barriere Curling Rink Flea Market

The Barriere Recreation Society say they will be holding a Flea Market on Saturday, Aug. 29, at the Curling Rink. Joining them will be the Barriere Lions Club who will be hosting a drive through Pancake Breakfast at the same time. The events will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“The Pancake Breakfast is a unique experience for people to help support the great work of the local Barriere Lions Club, and the Fall Fair and Rodeo Association will also be present selling tickets for their raffle,” says Society spokesperson Susan Bondar.

She notes that the Barriere Recreation Society manages the Curling Rink Building throughout the year, and during curling season they host curling programs for adults, seniors and youth.

“Last year the Barriere High School students had curling lessons during gym classes,” said Bondar, “This was a great way for students and adults to work together.”

She also commented, “During the off season, the Curling Rink Building is used for Graduation Ceremonies, the Fall Fair and Rodeo as the Exhibit Hall, and the BC Agriculture Expo as an office and to host their Awards Banquet and Buyers Breakfast.”

Those interested in renting a table for the Flea Market or wishing to donate items to the Recreation Society for their Market table, are asked to call Theresa at 250-672-1886.

“Come and support the great works of the Barriere Lions Club, the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association, and the Barriere Recreation Society,” said Bondar.
