Making history

July 1, 2010 Leave a comment

The Bowness Historical Society is working on a second book, Bowness—Then and Now. We expect to have it available for sale early in 2011, to mark the 100th anniversary of Bowness.

We are also busy making preparations for centennial celebrations next year.

If you have any photos or family history in the community to share, please contact Carole Carpenter at 403-288-1737 or
