We're looking for your stories of giving on Bowen

Next week is our giving on Bowen edition

Did you know that every day this winter a volunteer will check on the salmon eggs at the Terminal Creek Hatchery? Or that the Knick Knack Nook has never had to close because of a lack of volunteers to run the shop? Did you know that the municipality has 26-odd committees filled with community members who advise on everything from development to finance? Volunteers on Bowen spend thousands of hours each month organizing fairs and markets, training for disaster response, helping injured neighbours, keeping local sports organizations running, tending to gardens, reading to kids and generally guiding the direction of our community. We want to thank them.

Next week is our “Giving on Bowen” edition. From Bowfest to firefighting, fundraising to foot racing, we want to recognize as many people as possible. But, I am only one woman with one pair of eyes and one pair of ears. I really need your help to celebrate the people who make this town a special place to live.

Do you have a story of how a non-profit organization helped you? Do you want to send a (platonic) Valentine to a loyal volunteer three months early? Do you have a lovely story of giving or kindness to share? Or did you capture a lovely giving moment on-camera? Help us celebrate Bowen’s giving spirit. Please send submissions of between 25 and 250 words to editor@bowenislandundercurrent.com by 3 p.m. Nov. 25.

Thank you so much Bowen.
