Thank you Barriere

To the editor;

We were evacuees from 100 Mile House and 108 Mile Ranch. We would like to express our gratitude to the community of Barriere for your concern and words of encouragement as you had gone through the same thing 14 years ago. We would like to thank the staff at AG Foods for your concern, the staff at IDA Pharmacy for giving us a 25 per cent discount on purchases, the Barriere Legion for hosting a barbecue and letting us watch the BC Lions football game. The Barriere Ladies golf, who let us join their fun evening, the lady from the club that brought us veggies and flowers from her garden; much appreciated. We would especially like to thank Susan and Kenner Mitchell, Deb Legare and staff of the Chinook Cove Golf for accommodating us and giving us a second home. We can’t thank you enough for your support! Thank you Barriere!

Laurie and Leena Lautrup, Susan Pinkerton,
