Volunteer Centre supports splash pad project in community

Letter to the editor from Beverly Murphy - splash pad project

To the editor;

Summer office hours are now in effect at the North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre (NTVIC) in Barriere.  We will be open Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Please leave a message for business at any other time, and we will get back to you and make any arrangements needed.

At this time we thank you all for your continued support of NTVIC and hope you all enjoy a safe and carefree summer.

NTVIC is offering its support to the Barriere 100th Anniversary Committee and their quest to build a heritage theme splash pad; a “Splash in the Past” facility for people of all ages.  It will focus on the history of our area, while offering a cool place to relax and enjoy the summer.

In order to accomplish this we must request funding, and in doing so we need letters of support from as many organizations or individuals as possible.  We are asking that your group takes the time to write a brief letter of support and email it to the district office as soon as possible so we may proceed with the application.

For more information you may call Tasha at the district office, 250-672-9751, or simply send your brief letter of support to tbuchanan@barriere.ca.

Thank you very much in advance and if you would like to be a part of the committee Tasha can give you information on that as well.

Thanks everyone, and feel free to call NTVIC at any time with your questions or concerns.

Yours truly,

Beverly Murphy

NTVIC office administrator
