Light up is underway

Festival of Lights looking for volunteers on Nov. 1

Help get the town ready for Light Up 2015 Sunday, Nov. 1 at 9 a.m.

Looking for a bright spot over the weekend, then why not join the volunteers who will be donating their time to decorate the Town of Ladysmith for this year’s Festival of Lights.

Volunteers are needed Sunday, Nov. 1 at 9 a.m. says a flyer distributed by FOL organizers. People are needed to hang, tie, hold, carry, plug-in… and do a whole lot of other chores needed to get hundreds of thousands of lights up in time for Light-Up.

If you can help call 250-245-5888 or 250-245-2263, or meet at the 49th Parallel Grocery parking lot at 9 a.m.

“If you know someone with a bucket truck or a ladder truck, invite them too,” says the poster.

Just think, the lights will shine a little brighter for you, if you know you’ve strung a few yourself.
