Grant Gordon, Joe Knowles, and Travis Clayton have done a terrific job keeping our main roads open during the recent snowfalls.

This is a tough job, made tougher by abandoned cars on the roadways. Mainroad cannot plough when the roadsides are blocked. This also means that emergency vehicles cannot get down unploughed roads. Both Grant and the TIVFD recommend that if you absolutely must get out on the roads during forecasted snow events, plan ahead. Have legal winter tires (not all-season- must have snowflake or mountain graphic) and also carry proper sized chains. This past snow event was easy peasey for vehicles with chains.

If you absolutely must abandon your vehicle on a roadway, make immediate arrangements to have it moved so that the roads can be ploughed safely on both sides. Both Grant and your Fire Dept. hope we have seen an end to the winter, but this is still the time to shop for tire chains for next winter.

Knitting Project

Several of us on Thetis Island belong to the Dogwood Trefoil Guild...adult former Girl Guides and leaders.

We are having a BC Provincial Meeting in mid April. At this annual event we always have projects to help out in the community. This year one of the requests is for six inch knitted squares, using soft baby yarn. These are BONDING SQUARES. They are used in hospitals with premature babies and those ill and in incubators. The bonding squares are held on the parents bodies and then placed with the baby as part of a bonding program.

It would be wonderful if our Thetis Island people with knitting skills could take time to make some of these squares. We can collect them at Soup's On or by other means. 

Dee Smith,

Secretary, Dogwood Trefoil Guild

Missing Rowboat

My 6 foot white row boat with a metal keel cover has disappeared from the cut behind Telegraph Harbour Marina. It was padlocked to a cable. The padlock was cut and row boat taken.

If any body knows who or where my row boat is I would like it back so I can use it to get to work on the ferry.

Please contact me @ 250 246 3966
