Filberg Lodge hosts silent auction

As part of the ongoing, year-round fundraising efforts, a collection of arts and crafts donated by the artisans of the Filberg Festival, plus gems from the Filberg Gift Shop donations, are being auctioned this Saturday.

The second annual Silent Auction will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Filberg Lodge. There will be more than 100 items with something that will appeal to everyone on your Christmas list.

Pottery, metal art, textiles, jewelry, antiques and collectibles will be available to be bid on, with all of the proceeds going to maintenance and restoration projects in the historic park.

Bring the family down to the park at 3:30 to help decorate a tree for the birds and animals in the Park. Santa will stop to lead a procession to the Comox Centre Mall, where he will rock the day away with the Dukes of Dodge.

On Sunday, you're invited to welcome Small World Imports back to the Filberg Lodge with their wonderful display of Tibetan rugs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

If all of this doesn't get you in the spirit, check www.filberg.com. There are more wonderful seasonal events yet to come.
