Dear Editor:

When community comes together, great things happen. Wildsight would like to thank RK Heliski and all the other sponsors, supporters and volunteers for helping to make our 3rd Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival so successful.

Its our annual fundraiser and Saturdays event was sold out. We couldnt be happier. But more than that, the films are meant to instill inspiration and motivation for positive social change, and there was a noticeable buzz in the audience.

We look forward to 2017 when we can make the Festival even bigger and better when the Columbia Valley Centre is completed.

As Bill Cropper remarked to me, our old community hall has served the valley for almost 70 years and he has played music there for more than half of that. It holds the memories of countless dances and dinners, funerals and fundraisers, public forums and presentations, craft fairs and fitness classes.

The new hall will allow the community to flourish even more. For that, all of us can be grateful.

Baiba Morrow,

Chair, Wildsight Invermere
