231ST FILBERG FESTIVAL 2013

31ST FILBERG ENTERTAINERS FESTIVAL— 2013 23

Say ‘T hanks’ to a Volunteer Volunteers are the backbone of the Filberg Festival; it couldn’t be done without them. They take time out of their summer plans and devote themselves to ensuring the Festival is the success that it is. Festival artisans and entertainers often acknowledge the enthusiastic attitude of our Volunteers and the fun they seem to

have doing all the work that makes the Festival a unique and special experience for so many. So while you’re at the Festival consider smiling and saying thanks to a Volunteer for doing such a great job. You’ll encounter them as greeters, information and ticket booth staff, parking control support, and many other important roles. Much

of their work happens before the Festival and behind the scenes. To all of our Volunteers who work so tirelessly, we extend our gratitude for your efforts, your dedication and commitment. We appreciate your teamwork, sense of community and the contribution you make to the lasting legacy of the Filberg Festival. You are indispensible!

SAMPHIRE

Our first experience of the Filberg Festival was in 1996. Various craftspeople had told Adele that the Festival was well attended and a quality event. We decided to apply for a spot for the first two days and see how we liked it. We enjoyed the experience very much and promised ourselves that we would apply again in 1998. We were already committed to a year in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. We were going on our second teaching exchange for the 1997 school year. Fortunately, on our return to B.C. we were accepted as participants at the

Festival and enjoyed our four days. The Filberg site is beautiful and the atmosphere, generated by the artists, both visual and performing and the enthusiasm of the visitors is friendly and exciting. For the last three years we have displayed our work with the glass that our daughter, Lisa makes http://www. samphireglass.ca/. The combination of glass and clay forms display well together producing a fuller range of colour, a stronger awareness of light and, consequently, a greater sense of cheerful energy that our customers and visitors seem to enjoy.

Since 1998 we have missed two Festivals. Each year we look forward to participating in this wonderful event as it gives us the opportunity to display our latest ideas and also to renew friendships with fellow artists and many regular visitors. 2013 looks as if Filberg will be particularly exciting for us. We are already making plans with Lisa for what we need to do to have a strong display.

Attention Music Lovers As an established arts and craft festival, the Filberg Festival also appreciates and respects the craft of the musician and has deliberately developed a stellar music program. We anticipate this great music line-up is going to attract enthusiastic fans and we ask that festival attendees be kind and courteous as we try and make room for everyone to have a turn at listening to the music. Please remember that admission to the festival is to the event, not to any particular musical performance. Our aim is to make sure that everyone has a good time. Remember, if you can’t get a seat in the audience, you will still be able to hear the music as you peruse the crafts and search for something to nibble on in the food court.
