Mother’s Day this year was celebrated all over the world in many new and unique ways. Here in Barriere, residents were treated to the first Mother’s Day Impromptu parade courtesy of the five lovely moms pictured. Their parade toured Barriere’s downtown core, went past the Pioneer Residence, around the Fadear Park oval, and down Airfield Road past Terry’s Place community living residence. Thank you ladies, your sense of humour was infectious and brought smiles to many as they saw you parading by. Pictured are: lawn tractor driver Judy Armstrong, Tricia Morin and Kim Bruce in the first wagon, and Lisa Quiding and Denise Howe on the second wagon. (Submitted photo)
