Note About e-SPOKES...

One of the eSPOKES volunteers received a handwritten anonymous letter in the mail for an entire discussion to be posted.  

Please remember that eSPOKES is for announcements related to Thetis Island and can’t facilitate publishing discussions.  

If there is interest in initiating a discussion of a topic please approach www.thetisblog.net to ask if anyone else would like to collaborate.  You can use the contact page at www.thetisblog.net/contact/as well.  The discussion can then be announced via eSPOKES with the link. 

When sending items to eSPOKES its most helpful to the volunteers if the sender is identified so they don’t need to send out a notice to everyone if there are questions.

Next Thursday, we have “Jims Pools and Spas” coming over to Thetis to service our hot tub.

Putting Your Affairs in Order

When: Saturday, March 23rd from 10am till noon at Forbes Hall

Presenter: Bill Bahan of Victoria

Cost: Free!  Quote from Bill, “I am in the business of helping people save money.” 

SUBJECTS INCLUDE: General information that your loved ones and executor need when you no longer can speak for yourself due to health problems or you die. Personal and family information. Financial, tax and legal information, Health Care Directive, Powers of Attorney, Funeral Arrangements, Wills and Estate, Planning and Property Distribution (who gets what).  Taking care of these important matters while you are still able will save your loved ones many hours of agony and frustration.  They will be very grateful to you for having done this. 

Bill Bahan has travelled throughout Canada holding seminars called “Putting Your Affairs In Order” which include Wills and Estate Planning and End of Life Decisions.  He has been a minister for over sixty-five years and has helped many people deal with these matters.  His accounting background has been an asset in Financial Planning. Bill is a long-time friend of Ernie and Lynn’s.  Each participant will receive forms called “PERSONAL PLANNING GUIDE – WHERE EVERYTHING IS” which simply need to be filled in.  Take advantage of this opportunity to get your affairs in order.

Please contact Lynn Hunter at lynnhunter@telus.net or phone 250-246-2176 to reserve a spot or if you have questions. 


From the Library...

Over the years, donations of books have been used for the collection and the book sale.  As you know, the library budget is a result of the money raised at the annual book and bake sale.  

With the impending hall expansion the library will be boxed up and stored.  Please hang onto your book donations until the library is up and running again.  

Did you know the library has over 3000 books and over 844 DVD’s?  Not bad for a small island.

Thanks for your continued support.


Your island librarian.
