Bilton was excited to participate in our 2nd annual Innisfail Festival of Trees Sponsorship!
An event created to bring the community together, to celebrate, give and share.
During a time that is tough for many Bilton is always proud to give where we can. This holiday season we were a "Jingle all the way" sponsor and we had 4 of our own volunteer employees help decorate the Bilton Christmas Tree for the Silent Tree Auction.
We appreciate the time our volunteers gave to make our sponsorship a success and wanted to say a big THANK YOU to: Ceri Steen, QC Administrator | Kim Vanoosterom, Document Control & Project Assistant | Cindy Toews, Quality Control Inspector | Robbi-Lee Meeds, Receptionist - Finance.
Every year, there are families in our community that need a little extra help around the holiday season.
The event runs from November 25, 2022 - December 04, 2022 with each day having a little something special to see or do.
This year the Innisfail Festival of Trees added a new Christmas Artisan Market event for December 03, 2022 that had 15 local vendors and attracted at least 500 more attendee's (Bachusky, J. 2022) to the event!
