Friday night for youth in Barriere

The Barriere Youth Group, sponsored by Yellowhead Community Services, will be running Friday nights

The Barriere Youth Group, sponsored by Yellowhead Community Services, will be running Friday nights from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., starting this Friday, Jan. 13, and running until April 27, 2012.

The Barriere Youth Group, specifically for ages 12 to 18 years, is held at the Ridge utilizing the gymnasium and the multi-purpose room.

The gymnasium will be used for a variety of sports activities such as floor hockey, basketball, volleyball and badminton.

The multi-purpose room will be used for playing video games, watching videos, arts and craft activities, and just hanging out.

Youth Group facilitators are always open to new ideas, such as other activities and other supplies or equipment.   Feel free to bring forward your ideas.

All the activities are available at no cost to participants.

There will also be a mini cash concession where the youth will be able to buy refreshments such as pop, chips, candies, hot chocolate and noodle cups.

In past years the youth group has proven to be very popular with many of Barriere’s youth.  During the 2009 and 2010 sessions the program was well attended with up to 30 youth attending on a Friday night.

For more information you can contact Curt Osmond at Yellowhead Community Services at 250-674-2600 ext. 230 or at
