Flu Shot Clinic ~ Reminder

The Annual ‘Flu Shot Clinic is this Friday, October 28th, at Forbes Hall from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m. 

Please try to remember to bring your Health Number.  If your doctor wants you to get a pneumonia shot this year, that will also be available.

Don’t forget to wear a short sleeved shirt under your sweater…we are famous for the speed and efficiency our community exhibits to VIHA at this injection clinic. 

As in the past, a snack service hosted by the TIVFD Auxiliary will be available while you “recuperate”.

Garbage & Recycling News

You may have noticed the new container at the Recycling and Garbage Yard (the RAGY as I like to call it)! It has arrived because we are in the process of testing a new and potentially more cost effective system for removing our baled 'MMBC eligible' recycled packaging  from Thetis Island. This new system involves a partnership with the CVRD and we are still in the early stages of exploring the arrangement. We don't expect this new system to affect how individuals sort and drop off their recyclables (other then to keep taxes as low as possible!).

Thanks to all of you for continuing to be such great participants in this community operated system!

Ride to Departure Bay Ferry Needed ~ October 28th

We, Ken and Genny Redman, are looking for a ride to Departure Bay Ferry Terminal in Nanaimo on Friday October 28th, leaving Thetis Island anytime in the morning.

We would share gas costs.

Call us at 250-246-2465 or email us at


Unknown Dog at Large

We came across a dog unknown to us last night (around 9:30pm) on Kenwood road.

The dog was white huskyX type. We tried to see if it was wearing a collar and tags, but it wouldn't come close enough to us. Just putting the word out there if anyone is missing their canine companion!

Cheers, Steph Cottell
