The Barriere Lions Club have donated the proceeds from their Fall Book Fair to Lower North Thompson Learning and Literacy.  

Barb Gordon, Learning and Literacy coordinator, says the proceeds, totaling $500, will be used to support all Learning and Literacy programs in the Lower North Thompson region.

The Barriere Lions run projects such as their annual firewood sale, and their book fairs to raise funds to support local programs such as camperships for underprivileged youth, bursaries for students, and support for individuals and families in need.
