Elementary school students from Barriere Elementary and Neqweyqwelsten School visited the North Thompson Museum in Barriere on Friday June 8.
The day was full as the students had the opportunity to make butter, milk the plywood Fall Fair cow, grind coffee on the Store grinder, knit a sock on a sock machine, weave on a table loom, spin wool, attend school in an one room school house, check out a fossil display, hand wash clothes, play jacks or marbles, pound flowers, paint rocks, make a button buzz saw, identify scat, check out the Trapper’s Cabin and learn about honey bees.
A special thanks to all the teachers for bringing the students to the North Thompson Museum.
A huge thank you to all the community members who helped with the displays; Rob and Shirly Wittner, Jim and Ruby, Anne Carmichael, Donna Kibble, Mike Burrows, Harley and Lynn Wright, Bryan Smith, Jayne D’Entremont , Kathleen Pilatzke, Kim Fennell, Josh Tremblay, Cassidy Sager, Amber McNeice, Alex Underhill, Emma Lassi, Ty Hartman, Jon Fennell, Haily Robertson, and Kaitlyn Blanchette. The day would not have been a success without these wonderful people lending a hand to run the stations.
