Elections Next Saturday, October 20th 8:30 AM - 6:30 PM

Local government elections in small communities depend on voter turn out.

This is your island, your choice for Trustee counts and every vote is important.

You have, three candidates running for two seats at the Islands Trust and 4 candidates running for one seat at the Regional District as well as two important referendum decisions brought to you by the CVRD.

I have two more open house opportunities to chat about what is important to you on Thetis and the surrounding Trust area this Saturday October 13th and on Tuesday the 16th, coffee and tea will be on 1:00 till 4:00. If you are attending the Thinc session in the main hall on Saturday please stop in and say hi.

Advance voting is still available Tuesday October 16th at the Frank Jameson Community Centre, 810 Sixth Avenue in Ladysmith

MissingTabby Cat

Our neutered cat Misha has been missing for three days. He usually likes his food too much and does not stay away for more than a day.

He is a VERY friendly and affectionate tabby cat. He is medium sized, short haired, with a dark stripe along his back, and a black tipped tail. 

We do miss him and would really appreciate if you could let us know if you have seen him. Thank you so much, Simone 250-246-4802


Islands Trust Candidate Ken Hunter

Let's work together to preserve property rights for owners and residents while being ever mindful to protect our unique environment. 

Please feel free to contact me at 250 210-1498 to discuss what's important to you.

Thank you,

Power Outage and Earthquake Preparedness

BC Hydro has planned an island-wide power outage for regular maintenance of THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18 from 9 am to 3pm.

Coincidentally, October 18th is BC ShakeOut Day, where the entire province can practise earthquake preparedness with a simulated earthquake at 10:18 am (tune in for rumbling noise on local radio stations.)

The CVRD Emergency Alert Notification System will also be tested that morning.  Many of you already signed up for that at last week’s Soups-On.  If you missed the great bowl of soup and CVRD Sybille Sanderson’s sign-up table, you can sign up on line by going to the CVRD website and search for Emergency Alert Registration.

Since we know the power will be out anyway, what a great time to get ready and be prepared for “the big one”.  How will you fare during an extended disaster?



Reminder: TIRRA General Meeting

Reminder: TIRRA General Meeting Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 7 PM in Forbes Hall. There will be reports from all of TIRRA and from the Improvement District and Ferry Advisory.  St. Margaret's Cemetery's report will be especially interesting.


Ping-Pong Cancelled til Oct 19th

The regular Sunday, Tuesday and Friday ping-pong sessions at Forbes Hall are cancelled. 

They will resume on Friday evening October 19th.

Memories of Beth Bolster Tea

On Friday October 26, 2018 from 2 PM to 4 PM an informal gathering will be held at the Library at Forbes Hall for those wishing to share memories of Beth Bolster.

Tea will be served. You are invited to bake something to bring along to share. Perhaps one of the many amazing recipes that Beth gifted her friends and neighbours with over the years?

Please bring your favourite memories and stories of Beth as well. If anyone has photos of interest please do bring them along. Hopefully we will hear stories which will span the forty plus years Beth spent on her beloved Thetis Island.

To those of you who enjoy writing, it would be wonderful to have copies of your stories (and Photos) so that they can be put together and sent to Ken and his family in Washington as a reminder of Thetis love.

Contact us.
