The Fernie Lantern Festival is just 2 days away. Aahhee yaaaaeee! Our lantern Community Builds are done and there are so many lanterns in the works. It’s going to be an incredible sight! But I just wanted any of my readers to know, if you didn’t get a chance to make your own lanterns, Hospice artists/volunteers created some that are going to be available for $10 at the Arts Station (Nov 19) from 6pm – all proceeds to Hospice. Support a great local cause and join the event at 6:30! They sold out last time so get there early.
While we’re talking about fundraising, Bright Beginnings Community Preschool will be set up at the Aquatic Centre grounds with snacks to eat. Don’t forget to bring some change!
And, of course, there will be free hot chocolate – thanks, Starbucks!
The Fernie Lantern Festival is an event I look forward to. I’ve been on the committee from the beginning and I hope to stay on for as long as they’ll have me.
It’s a wonderful evening but a lot of people, time and creative energy goes into making it happen. That’s my segue into:
If you’re interested in being part of the lantern team, either offering your talents (which can be anything from construction, to electrical, to smaller odds and ends that need to be done) we would love to hear from you!

Don’t forget, the first community build is tonight. It’s a place to go to find materials that you can use to make your own lantern. Make one in one evening or take your time over multiple nights. We have a few community builds planned. Here is the list:
