For anyone who loves to decorate during the holidays, organizers of the Vancouver Island University Festival of Trees have the perfect volunteer opportunity for you.

Amber Harris, owner of JBD Design Group, is looking for volunteers to assist with decorating 20 Christmas trees which will be on display for this year’s festival.

No experience is necessary as Harris shares her decorating tips and tricks with the volunteers.

“It’s a fun experience for the volunteers and a great way to get into the holiday spirit,” said Harris.

The decorating takes place at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre every Tuesday and Thursday from 6-9 p.m. For more information, please call Renee Bohun at 250-740-6258 or e-mail or renee.bohun@viu.ca.

The 17th Annual Festival of Trees takes place at the Vancouver Island Conference Centre Nov. 14 to Dec. 2.

Visited by more than 3,000 guests annually, the festival is a holiday tradition in Nanaimo and has raised more than $750,000 to support VIU students.
