It’s Barriere’s 100th birthday and we want to have a party.
Well, that is wrong, what we want to have is a celebration of our community. The plan is to have a series of events that are focused on participation and outright fun. The funding for these events will not come from taxes. We have a few generous sponsors already and will look for some more. The thought is that our residents pay taxes so that the District can provide essential services, and the extras should come out of the pockets of those generous souls that truly want to help out.
The first event will be on Family Day, starting at 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Since the weather may not cooperate we will need to be flexible as to what the list of things to do will be and where the event will be held.
If it is cold then the rink will be put to good use, and if there is snow then there will be contests like a snowball toss, best snow angel and so on.
An update will happen the Thursday before the Family Day weekend. Be prepared to come out and enjoy yourselves. Bring your appetite, your parents and friends. You can leave your money at home.
