Since you asked...  

The tower being added to the fire Hall is called a hose tower.  Traditionally all fire halls had one for hanging hoses to dry after use so they wouldn’t rot.  Then came electric hose dryers if departments could afford them (turns out they don’t last long and are expensive) and rubber hose that doesn’t need drying (but has a separate set of problems). On Thetis we have traditionally draped wet hose over top of the vehicles for several days to dry, which can be a problem when we want to move out quickly.  The hose tower will allow us to drain and dry hose properly and comes with the added bonus of being a training tower for ladder drills and rescue skills.

Thanks for asking.

Important Thetis/Penelakut Ferry Information

On Thanksgiving Monday (08 October) afternoon, at approximately 2:40PM the BC Ferry MV Kuper will be departing for her scheduled refit at Point Hope Maritime in Victoria, BC and the BC Ferry Kahloke will be commencing service on the Thetis/Penelakut/Chemainus Route.

It is anticipated that there will be some minor delays to the 2:40 PM Departure from Thetis Island on Monday (08 October) while customer vehicles are unloaded from the Kuper, AM & PM Vessel Crews are changed, BCF crew vehicles are loaded onto Kuper, Kuper Departs  and the Kahloke docks & loads the regular traffic.

There will be BC Ferries crew members present at Thetis Island Terminal to ensure that the correct (crew) vehicles for Victoria are loaded onto the Kuper and that passenger vehicles are loaded onto the Kahloke.  Passenger vehicles for Chemainus and Penelakut for the Monday  2:40 PM sailing will be held back approximately 100 feet from the normal stop line to ensure that correct vehicles are loaded, in the correct sequence, onto the correct vessels.

We ask for your cooperation and understanding as we make that change-over on Monday afternoon.

Sincerely,

Captain Michael Cormier

Sr Master MV Kuper

St.Margaret's Cemetery Work Day

A big thank you to those who turned out on Wednesday to help with work being done at the cemetery- James Alton - Wheel barrow and mulch master plus extra thanks for bucking up the fallen trees; Eleanor Vandergaag hauled rocks and created dry river beds; Garry and Adele Wickett cleaned up fallen trees and debris. Hudson Procter was our man on the backhoe and he did a fabulous job. Doug Fenton organized and designed the new rain garden system at the cemetery.

Go down and have a look at an alternative approach to managing water issues on your property.
