Rocking Through The Ages with grads of 2019

Barriere Secondary’s Class of 2019 presented their show ‘Rocking Through The Ages’ on Apr. 11 to a most appreciative audience. The event held in the school gymnasium was a grand trip back through time for all attendees, with plenty of nostalgia and laughter along the way. The show was vibrant, and the music got many toes tapping with folks happily singing along as the popular songs rocked on through.

All of the performances were created by the grad class with help from Peggy Brown, Kelley Rayworth’s on makeup, and the costumes provided by a collaborative effort of parents, friends, family students and Peggy Brown.

DJ’s for the show were students Natalie Shearsmith and Irene Beeton. MC’s for the formal wear presentation were Kim Fennell and Kristine Luison.

Performances included the following grads; Pamela LeFeuvre, Emma Hamblin, Cassie Pedersen, Zarina Mitchell, Cody McGunigle, Samantha JOnes, Matlock Brown, Brayden Ive, Taylynn Eustache, Irene Beeton, Mac McLay, Katie McGinnes, Grace Kempter, Lane Robinson, Dane Hawkins, Brooke Hartman, Kaitlyn Blanchette, Natalie Shearsmith, ad Sara Sabyan.

A silent auction was used as a fundraiser for the grad class with numerous items being donated by sponsors and supporters.

The Class of 2019 Graduation Ceremonies will be taking place on Friday, May 24, 6 p.m., at the Barriere Curling Rink.
