“To commemorate the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association’s 65th year, along with Barriere’s 100th year celebration, we are asking folks to help fill a memory book,” says NTFFRA member Christine Proulx, “Jot down your favourite memories or stories about your experiences at the Fall Fair or Rodeo over the last 65 years. The stories can be funny, or special moments, anything at all.”
Proulx says photographs are also welcome, and it would be a great assist if it was noted who was in the photographs and the approximate year that the photo was taken if known.
The Sharing of Memories Book holds some fun and interesting experiences of people who have attended fall fairs of the past. Perhaps it is your turn to jot down some thoughts so that others can enjoy and reminisce.
Proulx says your stories, memories and or photos can be dropped off at the Barriere Employment Centre Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., or you can drop them off at the Fall Fair office in the IDA Mall, Tuesday to Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., until Aug. 27.
Make sure you stop by the Fall Fair and Rodeo Association’s heritage display in the North Thompson Agriplex’s banquet hall when the fair is on this Labour Day Weekend. You’ll find the Sharing of Memories Book there, along with numerous photo albums and interesting memorabilia.
