Rod and Gun Club supports library

Rick Hoar, President of the Lake Windermere District Rod and Gun Club, presents Library Director Nicole Pawlak with a cheque for $ 1,000 to purchase a bookshelf for the new Invermere Public Library, which will be located in the Columbia Valley Centre that is currently under construction.

The club has been and will continue to be a major user of the facility with their annual wild game dinner and banquet, free winter gun safety and marksmanship program for valley youth, and archery program.

The new facility will enable the club to offer more tickets for their banquet in coming years which will be timely for their upcoming 100th anniversary plans for 2019, and will allow the club to host a yearly major winter indoor multi day archery shoot.  The club has worked with the building steering committee to ensure the new building can accommodate such an event and the club will be purchasing the needed equipment including Kevlar curtains in the future.

Mr. Hoar stated the club has been an ongoing supporter of the Invermere Public Library, providing funds for the purchase of books on archery, shotgun sports, conservation, and CORE course texts.

Designating our donation for the purchase of a new shelving unit to accommodate these books in the new library will not only benefit club members but also the community as a whole.

The Rod and Gun Club invites other local community groups to consider purchasing a bookshelf for the new library. Taking part in this fundraising campaign is an opportunity for groups to create a legacy that will be used for many years to come.
