The Barriere Recreation Society recently held a raffle which was drawn on April 25. The proceeds of the raffle are to help with operational costs to support the Curling Rink building.
“Thank you to all that donated prizes and bought and sold tickets,” said Barriere Recreation Society rep Susan Bondar.
Here are the raffle winners:
• First prize Leo Wassing – two ZZ Top Concert tickets and hotel stay in Kamloops
• Second prize Jill Dunbar – hospitality basket
• Third prize Maurice Gagne – handmade afghan
• Fourth prize Clay Robinson – Canadian Tire gift certificate
“The draw was to be made at the annual Spring Flea Market on April 25,” said Bondar, “But due to the current situation, the Flea Market was canceled. The Recreation Society is hoping to host a Flea Market at a later date once people are allowed to gather again. We will post an announcement as soon as a date is confirmed.”
The Recreation Society reports they had a successful curling season this past winter. Besides the daytime and evening leagues, the high school had curling lessons during gym classes, with several members of the Curling Club coaching the students. The Society also hosted two bonspiels this past season with many out of town teams attending. Both bonspiels were well attended and successful. The Society encourages area residents to consider curling next October as a winter activity.
