On Saturday, Nov. 19 the the Barriere and District Riding Club had their year end award and volunteer recognition potluck.
There was a great turn out and wonderful food dishes, including a lovely cake with the B&DRC logo donated by Joanne Petersen.
Ginger Chappell, outgoing president says the participation from the volunteers this year was greatly appreciated as this year required so much effort and 45 people sacrificed personal and family time to make the clubs goals a success. As well the participation of club members from Clearwater to Kamloops made all the work worthwhile.
The Barriere and District Riding Club doubled their membership this year from 2010. There was a huge participation in the club’s Fun Days as well as Heritage Shows.
The executive for 2011 were Ginger Chappell (president), Ainsley Gullage (vice president) Kate Fergusen (secretary), Sharon Threatful (treasurer) and directors Joanne Petersen, Cherie Jardine, Darcey Woods, Kristina Bradley and Nadine Belinski.
The 2012 executive are Darcey Woods (president), Lew Aldrich (vice president), Kate Fergusen (secretary), Jill Dunbar (treasurer) and directors Ginger Chappell, Mike Chappell, Sharon Threatful, Cherie Jardine and Kristina Bradley and youth delegate Jessica Chappell.
