Christmas House Tour approaches

Anderton Therapeutic Gardens will sell tickets to their Christmas House Tour at the Christmas Craft Faire.

The Anderton Therapeutic Gardens Society will sell tickets to their Christmas House Tour at the Charles Dickens Christmas Craft Faire at the Filberg Centre.

You can find them in the Evergreen Seniors’ Lounge on Nov. 9 from 3 to 8 p.m.

The Anderton Therapeutic Gardens are in their 15th year of operations and each year the volunteers improve and upgrade the gardens and the opportunities it offers to the local community. The Christmas House Tour is their major fundraiser. For details, see www.gardensonanderton.org.

At the Faire this year, YANA (You Are Not Alone) will be there Nov. 10 and 11 with their Christmas Crackers for sale.

The sale of the crackers is now a Comox Valley tradition and has proved to be a popular fundraiser, selling out each year well before the holidays begin.

To get your Christmas crackers, and your chance to win prizes, you will find YANA volunteers in the Evergreen Seniors’ Lounge from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. next Saturday and 10 to 4 next Sunday. This year’s prize is a diamond ring.

For details, visit www.yanacomoxvalley.com or call 250-871-0343

The Faire runs Nov. 9 from 3 to 8 p.m., Nov.10 from 10 to 5 and Nov. 11 from 10 to 4.

The Florence Filberg Centre is wheelchair-accessible and there is free parking. For details, contact 250-339-9891, dickens.faire@gmail.com or visit www.dickenschristmascraftfair.com.
