Teen Town Drop In is getting ready to offer Barriere area young people one night a week in the Senior’s hall

A new opportunity for young people in the community of Barriere is being offered by the Barriere and District Seniors Society. As an introduction, the Society will be offering an open house on Thursday, June 7, 6:30 p.m., to get the process underway of implementing a Teen Town Drop In at the Senior’s Hall in Barriere that will take place every Thursday evening. The open house is to announce the Society’s goal to have a teen group (ages 13 to 18 years) that is run by teens, parents and seniors.

“We need teens and parents to come out and give us some ideas for activities that they would like to see for the Teen Town Drop In, as well as any fundraising ideas,” said Society rep Bev Botkin.

Botkin says the Society very much wants to provide youth in the community with a place to socialize, have fun, and learn in an environment that is relaxed and safe.

“We have some games, a pool table, books; but we need ideas of what the teens in the area are interested in,” said Botkin, “We have members that can teach cooking, knitting, crocheting, food preservation, and probably just about anything else people might be interested in learning. We welcome anyone with a skill they are willing to teach or a great idea we can implement.”

If you would like more information about the Teen Town Drop In come to the meeting June 7, or email: barriereseniorssociety@ gmail.com, or call Bev at 250-371- 7686 or MaryLou at 250-672-0321.
