Olivia’s Bow Club is a Subscription Bow Club that is owned and operated by Lindsay (Brookshire) Darnelle – Lifelong resident of Alpine and the daughter of Angela & Ronald Brookshire (Owners and creators of the Alpine Community network).

Kylie Rowand, is a beautiful baby girl who lived in Alpine who changed our community FOREVER …. she battled Neuroblastoma cancer for 13 months before she passed away from the disease at the tender age of 2. Her parents Bree and Luke Rowand started The Kylie Rowand Foundation in her honor and have since raised more than $100,000 to benefit pediatric cancer and help families with children who have been impacted by the disease pay for their gas, groceries, mortgages and rent during cancer treatments. Watch this video about Kylie’s Story HERE

Her strong mama shared their journey online and Kylie soon gained a massive following of supporters while inspiring hundreds of thousands of people around the globe.

At 2 1/2 years old Kylie flew home to heaven and gained her angel wings.

Kylie’s legacy now lives on through the Kylie Rowand Foundation as she continues to inspire all of us to be brave, be strong, smile in the hardest times and….. love like Kylie.
