Geordie Salle serves her community in creative and caring ways. Geordie provided volunteer medical support for the region of Barriere for 23 years – treating everything from pneumonia to infections, delivering babies and buying a station wagon which she and her husband used as a local ambulance service. As a charter member of the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Association, Geordie has dedicated thousands of hours over the past 56 years to ensuring its success. She has helped to build homes for people in the area, has organized and fundraised at the Chinook Cove Hall, volunteered for the Barriere Curling Club and tutored in a Children’s Literacy Program. She is a role model for future generations of her community.
