Letter to the Editor: Invermere commended

This year I would thank the District of Invermere for their improvement efforts in the past spring and summer.

Dear Editor,

September is always a beautiful month. This year I would thank the District of Invermere for their improvement efforts in the past spring and summer.

We now have about a score of new trees — on the corner by the one old high school, and on the hill down to Tayton Bay (Kinsmen Beach); also in town in several of the curved flower beds which serve as traffic “slow down” areas. The road side (west) at Pothole Park also has new trees and a walkway, a fence and many attractive plants. Altogether a definite plus, including new banners on the lamp posts here and there!! Extra benches all over town are another plus. Including the staff wages (seasonal) to maintain after planting the colourful beds of flowers, this has been a reasonable way to spend some of our tax dollars — for colourful and cheerful results.

Shirley Campbell
