Seniors trek to Barkerville thanks to Quesnel Rotary Club


Another successful Seniors’ Trek to Barkerville is in the history books! On Aug. 27, the Rotary Club of Quesnel treated three busloads of seniors, including residents of Fraser Village, Maeford Place and Dunrovin Lodge on this annual outing to Cottonwood House and Barkerville. Everyone enjoyed a sunny day including a stop in Cottonwood House, lunch and a Theatre Royal performance in Barkerville. Rotary thanks the Province of B.C. for funding assistance, as well as Gold Pan City Stage Lines, House Hotel and Wake-Up Jake Restaurants, Cottonwood House, Barkerville Historic Town and Theatre Royal for generous breaks on pricing. Next year’s Trek will take place in late August. For information, call Ron Paull at 250-992-8994.
