Celebrate valley style June 30

Letter to the Editor

The Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley has hosted the Columbia Valley’s annual Canada Day Fireworks for over 20 years and folks line Lake Windermere to catch a glimpse of the spectacular show.

With money tight in our community, business donations are down, and we ask you, the viewing public to help us put on a great show! If everyone who watched the fireworks donated a toonie, the costs would be covered for years.

Please dig deep and donate via our coin boxes located in businesses throughout Invermere, mail a donation to us at Box 2039, Invermere, BC V0A 1K0 or drop a donation off at Local View Printing & Design in Invermere’s Industrial Park, one block west and north of the bottle depot.

Remember the fireworks display will blast off at one minute after midnight on the night of June 30.

The fireworks will be set off just east of the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena in Invermere, and we would also like to thank Stoneset Equity Development Corporation for generously allowing us to use their property again this year as our launch pad.

The best places to see the show are beside the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena, Lakeview Road on the east side of Lake Windermere, James Chabot Beach at the north end of the lake, or from one of the many boats that anchor on the lake each year.

Thank you everyone, for your generous contributions to the show.

And a reminder that if you have pets, please keep them under your supervision and care as the noise can be quite a bit for them to handle.

On behalf of the Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley, we look forward to seeing you at midnight on Monday, June 30 for another great show to kick-off Canada Day 2014!

Lawrence Bell & Steve Mantyka,

Fireworks co-chairs,

Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley
