Dear editor,

This year’s Filberg Festival broke attendance record’s and its success was largely due to the support of the volunteers, sponsors, suppliers, artisans, musicians, suppliers, community and staff.

The board of the Filberg Heritage Lodge & Park Association (FHLPA) and the festival producers are very much aware of the integral role that the music plays in the success of the Filberg Festival. It is not their intention to change the direction of the festival in any way.

The funds raised from this year’s raffle are being invested in a renovation of the main stage, so that the music will live on during the Filberg Festival as well as other events in the park such as the Summer Concert series.

Lewis and Sears Marketing and Event Management (www.lewissears.com), experienced event producers, are contracted with the association for several more years to continue producing the festival. The board is excited about the festival’s future and thanks the community for their support.

Mo MacKendrick,

Comox Valley
