Shuttle Service Wanted ~ August 26th Wedding

I am a wedding planner based out of Victoria, and I am helping with a wedding at Overbury Resort on Saturday, Aug 26th.  We are hoping to find someone local, who would be able to offer a “shuttle” service to guests.  We would be looking to have pickups at certain locations happen between 3:15 - 4:00, and then again at the end of the evening, between 11pm - 1am.  There are only approx. 25+ guests who will need to be shuttled around, and so someone who has a van would be great for this!

Thank you so much,


Barb Walker, WPICC

Fast & Reliable Xplornet 

High speed satellite internet with no install costs!

Xplornet has kindly offered to extend the one-time free move of our satellite Internet, to someone else on Thetis who might like to take over the account. This means you will get the same great service and don't have to pay any of the initial installation and account activation fees! Once the account is in your name you may set it up as you like to whatever level of service you require. I can only say good things about the reliability of satellite Internet and great customer service by the company.

Looking for a New Home for my Cat ~

My Siamese cat needs a new home. I can not take her with me.

She is a good mouser, but fairly shy. I have a dog door, and she comes and goes as she pleases. Her food is upstairs and she comes in for that and a pet a few times a day. I hope there is some one who can take her.

Please call Freya @ 416-0488
