Teen Space enjoyed Wells/Barkerville visit

During their recent visit to Barkerville

Interlakes youth group, Teen Space, which is sponsored by the Cariboo Presbyterian Church, spent May 31-June 2 visiting Barkerville and area.

They were guided by the appropriate biblical theme from Psalm 19, v10 – “God’s teaching is more precious than pure gold.”

Co-ordinated by Coreen Caldwell, the trip included Dawn and Cameron Caldwell, Katelynn and Caleb Duits, Brent Ehlers, Fessica Fauchier and Jason Vogel, as well as chaperones Elaine and Bill Adams and Ken Malm.

The whole exercise, including food and lodging, was excellently planned by Coreen, and the youth had a marvellous time.

They spent two nights, with their own bedding, in the Wells’ curling rink and were able to cook there.

At Barkerville, attractions included the requisite ride on the stagecoach and gold-panning, as well as an exciting show at the famous Theatre Royal. Malm took them to visit the cemetery, and they also visited the old mining town of Stanley where there is another, still well-maintained cemetery

Sunday included a church service at St. Saviour’s Anglican Church, led by a minister from Drumheller, Alta.

The youth took a tour of Wells on most interesting bicycles, built for two and four; and they walked to the courthouse at Richfield, where Judge Begbie holds court in the summer. All in all, it was a highly successful vacation.

Teen Space members voiced their sincere appreciation for the public’s support of their fundraisers, which covered the cost of this much-enjoyed and educational trip.
