Free Silkie Rooster

Hello islanders,

Saffron's pet rooster came with a friend, but we only need one.  Both are purebred, friendly and quiet for roosters.  One is black and white splash, the other one is buff/red.  Saffron loves them both but has decided she needs to give one away - so if you are interested let us know and you can take your pick.  At the very least they are cool to look at :)

Please contact the McClellans at

Exciting News from the Ferry Advisory Committee

Since April 1st of this year we have been enjoying a 5% reduction in our ferry fares (which will continue indefinitely). This was given to Route 20 because the community driven schedule saved BC Ferries $100,000 annually above and beyond what the Province mandated. The savings that were achieved with the new schedule in the previous two fiscal years were discussed with BC Ferries representatives and the FAC on Friday September 23rd. 

We are pleased to announce that BC Ferries will pay Thetis and Penelakut Islands $100,000 each to be directed towards a community investment. The FAC has concluded that the money will be used for an expansion of Forbes Hall. The FAC felt that the Hall positively impacts the largest number of Islanders on a yearly basis.

I would like to sincerely thank Bill Dickie and Dave Knowles who got this whole thing started and members of the FAC who have worked on this initiative since early 2012. Thanks also to BC Ferries for honouring their commitment to return additional savings to our communities.

Apples are all gone !

I have an over abundance of apples that I would like to share with anyone who would like them. There are very good ones for eating or cooking and there are a lot of blemished or wormy ones that are also in good usable condition. I will be at home Monday after 10am or all day Tuesday for pick up, bring your own container or bags.
