Walk For Memories joins with Curling Club

letter to the editor from Liz Gilbertson - Walk For Memories joins with Curling Club

To the communities of Barriere and Clearwater;

Once again, we will be holding the Alzheimer’s/Investors Group Walk For Memories on Jan. 26.  Registration starts at 10 a.m., with the Walk at 11 a.m.

Please come out and join us for the Walk, short or long, or just stay in and visit, whichever you would like to do.  Then rejoin us in the Barriere Senior’s Hall after the Walk, for a light lunch and some great door prizes.

We will also have some silent auction items and a jelly bean jar.  As well, we have a raffle happening and the draw will be after the lunch.  The prizes for the draw include an awesome golf package worth $320, so get your tickets as all draws will be at 12:30 p.m.

After lunch, be sure to wander on down to the Legion, where the Curling Club will be holding a Bingo, starting at 2 p.m.

I look forward to seeing all the ‘regulars’ and, I’m sure, many new faces as well.  Come out and support two great community groups, for a full day of fresh air and bingo fun.

Liz Gilberson
