12th Annual Community Christmas Banquet coming to Barriere on Tuesday, Dec. 11

Members of the Christian Life Assembly (CLA), along with the Barriere Lions Club and other Barriere churches, are once again putting on their 12th Annual Community Christmas Banquet. The banquet will be on Tuesday, Dec. 11, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Everyone in the community is welcome to attend this free festive feast. If you’ve never been before, the CLA church is at 4818 Annesty Road, across from the high school and they have a large parking lot.

CLA has been holding a Christmas banquet since 2006, when they served 135 people. The dinner includes turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, veggies, and a wide assortment of goodies.

No transportation – no problem – there are drivers ready to pick people up and then give them rides home after the banquet. If you would like to attend and need to arrange a ride, please call 250-672-0111.

The banquet will also host a silent auction, and they will be raffling off the center pieces from the tables.

Since 2013, the proceeds from this event has been donated to the Barriere Food Bank, giving approximately $5000 and 600 pounds of food over the past five years. This year, again, there will be a box near the entrance for collecting non-perishable food donations, and all funds raised from the silent auction will go to the Food Bank.
