Dear Editor:

The Book Bar, a fixture in Invermere since my arrival in July of 1982, sadly is closing its doors in the very near future.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the business for its support of the David Thompson Secondary School (DTSS) band program over all those years, whether it was for sponsoring our Most Improved Musician Award, selling our Big Band Dance tickets, and never hesitating to put up one of our posters.

A visit to The Book Bar was always an enjoyable part of my day, and the three generations of Delesalles behind the counter never failed to provide some interesting conversation! Good luck for the future!

Greg Constable, DTSS Band Director
