To the editor;
We have a vision for our future. Join us for a trip along Barriere Town Road and you will be tempted to stop, picnic, and listen to the music emanating from the Bandshell, while children play in the water park located in the large expanse of green space that has been preserved in the heart of our community.
The water park that we would like to create will pay tribute to the history of the North Thompson Valley; a “Splash in the Past”.
The Barriere 100th Anniversary Committee is well on its way of meeting the goal of raising the $450,000 funds to bring this vision to fruition, but we need your help.
Fundraising has been ongoing and we have no intention of slowing down anytime soon.
Last year a “Family Fun Night and PJ Party” took place Feb. 9, 2014, at the Ridge (Municipal Hall).
If you didn’t make it out to that event, you missed a fantastic event that was full to the brim with families!
Children and parents alike are still talking about it and are already beginning to ask if another event is planned for 2015.
So it is our pleasure to announce that with the help of Success by Six Barriere, as well as other volunteers and community supporters, a second annual “Family Fun Night” has been scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 8, from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Ridge.
Just in case you aren’t familiar with this event, it is a fun filled, jam packed event planned on a grand scale with something to offer young and old alike.
Once again, this event features a Silent Auction that we are currently seeking donations for. This is a great opportunity to promote your product and/or business to the hundreds of people that come through the doors.
If your company or organization is able to contribute to this event, either via an item for a door prize, or the Silent Auction we would be very grateful.
Please contact Tasha Buchanan at the District of Barriere office (250-672-9751) if you would like to help Barriere celebrate Family Day and raise funds for a “Splash in the Past” water park; it will most certainly provide a boost to our community’s economy.
We thank you sincerely for your continued support,
Barriere 100th Anniversary Committee
