“Happy birthday!” Barriere Babies of 2017

The Success By 6 Barriere Babies of 2017 Party was held at the Barriere Senior’s Hall on Tuesday, June 19, with nine babies attending accompanied by siblings, parents, caregivers and family.

The annual event helps bring babies and their parents together. This is a start for new friendships, especially the babies who will grow up together in the community.

Aboriginal Success By Six, Interior Savings Credit Union, Barriere and Area Literacy Outreach, and other sponsoring and support organizations were on site to introduce themselves and get acquainted with the families.

Pictured are the babies with parents and a few siblings as well.
