For the past eight years Bowser residents have been working on plans to build an independent living complex in Bowser for seniors in Area H.

For the past eight years Bowser residents have been working on plans to build an independent living complex in Bowser for seniors in Area H.

The Bowser Seniors Housing Society are now at a point in the project development to demonstrate to lending institutions that the project is valued within our community.

The goal is to raise $200,000 by the end of 2013. This figure represents less than 10 per cent of the anticipated building cost.

Many seniors who have lived in their homes for years, will no longer be able to take care of their homes as they age, but want to stay in their community. At the moment they are forced to leave as there is no other alternative.

On July 27, fundraising begins with an evening of entertainment at the Lighthouse Community Centre.

The evening will include: food, drinks, silent auction, balloon pop and the highlight of the evening a Las Vegas type show starring Johnny Vallis in his Man of Many Voices show.

Get seven friends, co-workers, neighbours, customers, house guests together and purchase a table of eight. Tickets are available from Wenda at hoonoseus@shaw.ca or 250-757-9517.

Organizers would appreciate donations of goods or services for a silent auction at the event.
