Barriere’s North Thompson Star/Journal launches subscription drive

Here at the North Thompson Star/Journal in Barriere, B.C., we believe a community newspaper should be dedicated to community reporting, breaking news stories, and keeping our readers informed through both print and social media.

We also believe that involvement within our community and surrounding area, be it volunteering, ad donations for non-profits, or just lending a helping hand whenever possible, helps our communities to grow and to prosper.

Our upcoming subscription drive will be starting in September, and it comes with exciting draws and incentives for our readers.

Each week in September we will be partnering with one of four different area businesses; the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association, Lashes by Mika at Crystlee’s Hair Design, Armour Mountain Office Services, and Bear Lane Bistro.

Each new or renewed subscriber to the Star/Journal will be entered into a free draw (no purchase necessary) that will take place each Friday during the month of September for approximately $500 in prizes, with the first draw taking place on Sept. 6, and continuing each Friday until Oct. 4.

Throughout the month of October our carriers will be sharing complimentary issues of the Star/Journal to non-subscribers, which will come with an introductory card that will explain about our publication, and how you can become a subscriber.

During the month of November the Star/Journal will be donating a portion of the proceeds from new and renewed subscriptions to one of the non-profits that we support – the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association.

Our subscription rates:

• Mail delivery is $68.25 for 1 year, 2 years for $130.20

• Carrier delivery (call to see if you qualify) $63.00 for one year, or 2 years for $119.70.

Call our office at 250-672-5611, or email
