Remembrance Day, Monday Nov 11

With Forbes Hall not available, this year’s observation will be a simple lowering of the flag ceremony to be held at the firehall on Mission Road at 11am. Get there a few minutes early.

Those wishing for a more complete ceremony, there is the Chemainus Remembrance Day ceremony at 10:45 am at the Chemainus Memorial Cenotaph 9799 Willow Street, which will be followed by an open house at the Chemainus Legion.  Food, beverages and entertainment is being offered.


Item For Sale - Food Grade Water Container

I am in Victoria but have an item for sale that may interest someone living on Thetis Island. It is a food-grade water container with a lid, and it is specifically rated to hold reverse-osmosis water without leaching chemicals from the plastic into the water. I am hoping someone homesteading may need a container like this as it was expensive and I would like it to go to someone who can use this for their home or cabin. The dimensions are 27.5" tall without the lid and 28" with the lid. The diameter is approximately 21.75" with the top being slightly wiser at 22.75". The lid diameter is 24". It holds approximately 38 gallons leaving some space at the top.  I'm asking $30.00 and I can be contacted through 2winterbarren@gmail.com.

Need Some Painting Done Before the Holidays?

If anyone is needing the services of some excellent painters in the next while I am happy to recommend Nick and Nat. They will be visiting Thetis after completing a job in Duncan and will be available to start a new job by Nov 28th.

Philosophers' Cafe

Monday, November 25, 7:00 p.m.

Heneage House, The Portal

Does art have a purpose? Or purposes? Should it engage with social and political issues? If so, how? We’ve heard the phrases “art-for-art’s-sake” and “art-for-life’s-sake,” and some who might say, “Just give me art, for God’s sake.” The Classical writers often suggested that the aim of art was to teach and delight. Kafka was of the view that a novel  should be an axe to break the ice that encases us. Should art, then, comfort the troubled and trouble those who are too comfortable?

We’re hoping that you’ll want to share your thoughts about how art engages with the pressures of reality, whether it’s war, drowning climate refugees, the approaching extinction of wild Pacific salmon and resident killer whales, poverty, pollution, racism, zenophobia. If would be great if you could bring along a very short piece of writing or music or art that engages with an issue important to you and share it with the group.

NB: The earlier Mondays in November were impossible for both Ken Redman and me, so please excuse the shift in time. This needn’t affect our subsequent meetings.
