Plenty of free fun at outdoor ice rink

outdoor ice rink in Barriere served as a great venue for the Feb. 10, Family Fun Day

The outdoor ice rink in Barriere served as a great venue for the Feb. 10, Family Fun Day in the community.  Although temperatures were cold, sitting around minus -12°C, they were much warmer than the previous few days had been.  An early morning snowfall created extra work for a number of volunteers who stepped up to shovel the snow off the ice, and in short order their job was done and the skates went on.

Kids, adults, and seniors took to the ice for a leisurley skate, a little bit of hockey, or  just some  fun on the ice with plenty of laughter and smiles.

Dave Stutt brought his good team to give sleigh rides, and Bernie Kershaw manned a free concession, serving up hot drinks, hot dogs and cookies.

The event was a collaberation between Bill Humphreys and Bill Kershaw to host a free family fun event in the community.  Everyone agreed it was a great way to spend B.C.’s Family Day.
