Congratulations to Barriere on adding another bloom to their Communities in Bloom Award this year.

The community entered the provincial competition for the first time in 2012, and were rewarded for their efforts with a three bloom award.

This year the Barriere Communities in Bloom Committee were able to call home after last weekend’s awards dinner to report they would be bringing home a four bloom award as well as a trophy for tidiness.

Thanks to all the area residents, businesses, volunteers, the municipality, clubs and organizations who worked so hard to have Barriere show to its best advantage when the judges were here this summer.  Judges Yvette May and Michelle Rule toured the community over two days; among other stops they visited the McLure Wildfire Monument and Spirit Square, the North Thompson Agriplex and Fall Fair grounds, toured the Gilbert Smith mill, stopped in at the bike park, and were greeted at a community barbecue in Fader Park at the bandshell.
