Tree fest

Friends of the White Rock Library are inviting the community to support the facility during a “fun-raiser” next month.

The Festival of Mini-trees event is an opportunity to design, decorate and donate a mini-tree for silent auction in support of the group, which works to benefit the library.

Those interested may register by dropping off their six- to 24-inch decorated trees between 1-4 p.m. Nov. 12, at the library, located at 15342 Buena Vista Ave. The trees will remain on display until Dec. 3 and then will be sold that afternoon by silent auction, during the annual public Christmas Party hosted by Friends of White Rock Library volunteer committee.

Light refreshments and musical entertainment will also be provided at the 1-4 p.m. event. All proceeds from the sale of the trees will go to support the White Rock Library.

In addition, part-proceeds from the sale of handmade jewelry created by local artisan Fiona David will also benefit the cause. For more information, call 604-541-2201.
