Xmas parade and Santa breaky

Christmas Parade and Breakfast with Santa on December 10

To the editor;

Success by 6 and Yellowhead Community Services would like to invite all Barriere and area residents to our fourth annual Breakfast with Santa, Santa Clause Parade and Family Skate this Dec. 10.  Without the generous support of the Barriere Lions, Success by 6 would not otherwise be able to bring this fun filled community event to our families and children. I would like to extend our sincerest thanks in advance to all of the very generous individuals, businesses and organizations that are working together to support this year’s holiday celebrations.

The District of Barriere is once again hosting the Community Tree Lighting Dec. 9 in Fadear Park at 5:30 pm, complete with hot chocolate, hotdogs, a bon-fire and caroling.

Dec. 10 from 10 am – 1 pm, the Breakfast with Santa will be held at the Barriere Lions Hall. Santa will be there with gift bags fostering early literacy, and a photographer will be on hand from 10 am till noon for pictures with Santa. There will also be volunteers to assist children in creating some wonderful holiday crafts. The Lions will be cooking their famous pancake, sausage and egg breakfast and there will be entertainment on hand as well.

Admission donations appreciated but not required. Either of the following donations would be gratefully accepted:  (No toys, please)

Monetary – all proceeds to go to Barriere Success By 6 and stay in the community.

Non-perishable food items – all food items will be donated to the Barriere Food Bank.

Following the Breakfast, there will be a Santa Clause Parade starting at 1:30 pm at the Barriere Elementary School. The parade will commence at the school, circle through Barriere Town Rd and conclude at the tennis courts. Weather permitting, there will be a family skate at the tennis courts, where the Barriere Food Bank will be providing hot chocolate and goodies.

We look forward to seeing you all there celebrating our communities and families this holiday season. Success starts with each of us and investment in a child’s early years pays dividends for the future of our communities and province. Congratulations Barriere for being a community that cares.
