At their annual general meeting last week, the Barriere and District Heritage Society elected a new slate of officers, as follows; president – Fran Wagstaff, vice-president – Shirley Wittner, secretary – Doreen Livingstone, treasurer – Lois Keller, and directors – Joan Purver, Joy Huber and Ivor Sanders.
The group will be changing the location of their meetings during the winter months. In the past, they have met at the North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre during the winter; now they will be meeting at the Station House Restaurant on their usual day and time – the third Wednesday of the month at 1 p.m., except for December. In December, they will meet at the Station House Restaurant on the second Wednesday.
This year the Society will be holding a Christmas raffle for two awesome prizes: first prize will be $175 worth of cut and wrapped beef, and second prize will be a turkey hamper, with everything needed for a full turkey dinner. Raffle tickets will cost two dollars each, and are available from any of the executive, and will be available for purchase at the No-Host Bazaar on Nov. 16, and at the North Thompson Star/Journal office. The draw will be on Dec. 13.
