75th "Bearberry Homecoming"
We will celebrate the 75th anniversary of our Bearberry Community Hall in September 2014!
This will be a weekend with lots of activities for kids and adults, old-time picnic, pot luck supper, dance... like in the old days!
If you know of anyone who used to homestead or families they use to live in the Bearberry area, please contact us. We would like to send personal invitations out to those families.
If you like to be involved to help as a volunteer during this event, please contact us.
The Bearberry Wapitana Society was nominated for the "Social, Recreational & Cultural Award" and Barb Bell was nominated for the "Outstanding Volunteer Award".
Both awards were presented to the recepients during the second annual Community Awards Night hosted by Greenwood Neighbourhood Place and Sundre Chamber of Commerce in Sundre on April 26, 2008.
This awards are presented to a local individual or group who provided excellent social, recreational or cultural activities for the community and to a local individual over 18 years of age or a group who is recognized as an outstanding volunteer.
Please have a look at pictures taken during the event.
