A toast to good times past, present and future

Among the summer’s highlights was the unveiling of two new installations in Bowness: a mural created by artist Nikki Gour and local youth through a Y.E.A.R. project, now mounted on the east face of the Boys & Girls Club, and the memorial monument in Mackintosh Park.

AS ANOTHER SUMMER in Bowness draws to a close I wanted to take a look back and acknowledge some of the events we were involved in and thank the folks that made them happen.

We started the summer with the Youth Art program hosted by local artist Nikki Gour. It was very successful and we look forward to the after-school program she’s lined up for fall (see page 8 for more details). Art!Bowmont’s first Art in the Park event at Shouldice Park was a terrific success for visitors and participating artists from Bowness and Montgomery. We hope to see this become an annual event.

The Lions’ Stampede Parade and Breakfast was bigger than ever this year, with ever-growing numbers of local organizations and businesses taking part. And the second annual Bownesians’ Picnic at Baker Park in July drew crowds from Bowness and beyond. Even a bit of rain couldn’t dampen the fun. Of course we’re eagerly anticipating the upcoming first annual Bowness Harvest Fair on Saturday, Sept. 11. Read more…

Annual Lions Club Bowness Stampede Parade

For better or worse, some of us can’t escape the ’hood for a summer holiday. Whether cash strapped, work obligated or whatever, our summer sojourns are not so much sipping cervezas on a houseboat off the Shuswap. More like a 7-11 slurpee and a sweet swan dive from the Bowmont train bridge. (Actually feet first is best, take my word on it.) Read more…

Saturday, July 10
Breakfast: 7–11 am, Parade: 9 am

IT HAS BEEN SAID that half of Bowness comes out every year to see the community’s annual Stampede parade. The other half of Bowness is in it.

Without a doubt, one of the real highlights of the Bowness social calendar is the Lions Club Stampede Parade & Breakfast. For 21 years now the Lions, in co-operation with dozens of local businesses and merchants, have been throwing what has become the single best attended community event in the 99-year history of Bowness.
