Yard Waste ~ October

Open Burning category 2 and 3 fires can commence OCTOBER 1st on Thetis Island WITH PERMIT.  After October 31st, no permits for campfires or yard waste are necessary until next year.

You can apply for your OCTOBER yard waste permit now on-line at  but only small evening campfires are permitted until the end of September.  Those wishing October campfire permits whom have not already obtained a September permit, can apply now.  Those already holding a campfire permit for September are already on-file and we will extend your permit automatically to October 31st starting September 20th.

During October, and all of the following months, it will be your responsibility to check the VENTING INDEX for the day you wish to ignite your open burn pile, and to follow all Provincial regulations that prohibit construction waste, tires, garbage, plastic, paint burning etc. 

Go to this interactive venting map of coastal BC

The Ministry of Environment sets the VENTING INDEX daily for our area and to limit the respiratory and pollutant effects of smoke during periods of poor venting due to weather conditions, the MOE restricts open burning to days of GOOD Venting when the smoke will rise to a certain height and then mix and spread aloft rather than stay close to the land mass airshed we share.

Soup's On ~ Starts September 26th

Our new season will run from September 26 to December 12, 2018 and then from January 9 to April 10, 2019. 

Mark your calendars to come to Forbes Hall on these Wednesdays at 11:30 AM to enjoy the great soup, bread or rolls, baked goodies, Pot of Gold Coffee, tea, hot chocolate, hot apple drink and delightful conversations! 

Soup is served up to 1:00 PM or when we run out, whichever happens first; it is best to come early! The cost is still just $5.00 !  Second helpings of soup by donation; take out can be purchased after guests have been served.

Thanks to those people who came out for our recent "start up" meeting. We hope to find some additional soup cooks, bakers and helpers. These Wednesday social events cannot happen without the great volunteers and the two Capernwray students! All profit from Soup's On events is earmarked for kitchen needs; especially important with the upcoming Hall renovations.

TI Fraud Phone Call Alert

Today I received what I perceived to be a scam phone call.  The automated voice said it was from the “Fraud Alert System of Visa and MasterCard….” at which point I hung up.  

What made this call unusual is that my phone's display showed the name and phone number of a Thetis Islander.  I’m sure the call wasn’t initiated by them, but be aware that there’s another attempt out there by fraudsters to get your private information.

Editor Note: the RCMP wants to be informed of these calls, we've had several....
