Filberg celebrates National Volunteer Week

The Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park is celebrating National Volunteer Week by hosting two open houses at the Filberg Lodge.

The Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park is celebrating National Volunteer Week by hosting two open houses at the Filberg Lodge.

Visit the lodge April 24 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. or April 27 from 1 to 3 p.m. to tour the house, visit the gift shop, wander the gardens, and explore the volunteer opportunities available.

The Filberg Lodge and Park is managed by a not-for-profit association that relies on volunteer and membership support to raise money for the care and maintenance of the Heritage Lodge circa 1929.  Declared a community heritage site by the Town of Comox in 1979, the Park holds a special place in most Valley resident’s hearts.

There are many special fundraising and community events occurring in the park that rely on volunteers for their success such as Easter, Kid’s Day, Summer Concert Series and Filberg Festival.

Every weekend starting in April the lodge is open for tours where you hear about the history of the Comox Valley and transport yourself back to the 1930s with the furnishings and style.

Located in the upper floor of the lodge and entirely volunteer-supported, the gift shop is an amazing place to explore. Each week there is something new and most of the treasures sold in the gift shop are generously donated items from Valley families.

The gift shop is always looking for charming collectables to stock their shelves and every cent goes back into the Filberg Heritage Lodge and Park.

Volunteering at the Filberg is fun, dynamic, and social. Special talents are recognized but learning new things is also encouraged. National Volunteer Week is part of ongoing volunteer recruitment.
