Barlow Creek 4-H gives back

As part of Club to Club Exchange, 4-H members repaired and refinished bleachers at Alex Fraser Park

Eight members from Quesnel’s Barlow Creek 4-H Club and eight members from the Lorette Busy Bee’s 4-H Club in Lorette, Man., are participating in 4-H Canada’s Club to Club Exchange program. Members, along with two chaperones, spend eight days in each community, seeing the sights. A large component of the exchange is the Community Service Project. The members chose to repair and refinish the bleachers at Alex Fraser Park, below the grandstands. The project was a huge success, and the bleachers look amazing!

We would like to thank the Alex Fraser Park Society for providing the venue and Cloverdale Paint for all their support! This project was funded through the Canada Service Corporation, under their Hands to Larger Service Program.
