Meat Draw raises funds for North Thompson Museum

Barriere AG Foods employee, Taunja Blair, is shown drawing the winning tickets for the Annual Meat Draw held by The Barriere & District Heritage Society.

Myrt Fortier’s name was drawn for the top prize of a $200 meat pack; second place was won by Mary Anne Shewchek for a $100 meat pack, and third prize of a turkey valued at $50 went to Darin Underhill.

The Society congratulated the winners and thanked everyone who supported their raffle.

AG Foods was thanked for allowing raffle ticket sales in the lobby of the store, as well as Mitchell’s Mountain Beef, 4 Bar S Ranch, Stutt Family, Rainer Custom Cutting and Fran Wagstaff for donations of the meat packs.

“We truly live in a kind and generous valley,” commented Society president Lorene Fennell.

Funds generated will go towards the operation and upkeep of the North Thompson Museum & Archives in Barriere.
