Port Hardy’s Filomi Days committee is looking for new members

Filomi Days is less than six months away and volunteers are needed for the planning committee, said past president Davida Hudson who led last year's successful event.

PORT HARDY – Festival weather may still be a few months off, but festival planning starts now.

Filomi Days is less than six months away and volunteers are needed for the planning committee, said past president Davida Hudson who led last year’s successful event.

She and at least one other past committee member are willing to help out again this year, but the committee needs a chairperson and a few more willing hands to pull the annual Port Hardy event together.

“Last year we wrote up job descriptions so people would have a sense of what they have to do,” says Hudson.

People can take at look at those job descriptions and find out more about helping with Filomi Days, during the annual business awards March 12 at the Civic Centre.

“We are going to set up a display at the Chamber (of Commerce) event giving an overview,” says Hudson. She hopes people will see the rewards and sign up to help.

Filomi Days takes place the third weekend of July and celebrates Port Hardy’s heritage of fishing, mining and logging. Events include a parade, kids’ activities and live entertainment on the waterfront.

For more information or to volunteer, see the Filomi Days 2010 FaceBook page or call Davida Hudson at West Coast Community Crafts at 250-949-2650.
