"Bowness: Our Village in the Valley"
Our book was officially launched on September 10, 2005. Over 600 people attended the Book Launch and over 500 books were sold, not counting pre-ordered books. This was a memorable day in the history of the community of Bowness.
Many 'old' Bowness residents, along with their children and grandchildren were present. Lynn Newman, who was born in Bowness, and still resides here, was given the honour of unveiling the first book. Guest speakers were MLA Alana Delong and Alderman Dale Hodges. The positive comments from people who have purchased the book have been tremendous. Sales quickly justified a second printing in 2006 and a third printing in 2011.
