Greetings Thetis Island Volunteers
April 23-29 is National Volunteer Week. It’s a time to celebrate and thank the volunteers around us. Thetis Island like most communities could not function without the ongoing support of volunteers.
In celebration of awesome volunteers on Thetis we invite you to come out to the Volunteer Coffee Break on Saturday, April 29 from 10AM-1PM at Forbes Hall.
Drop by for some great coffee, snacks and conversation. Come one and all.

Looking for someone going to VICTORIA with a truck to take a dresser and sofa bed, down to Mike's new apartment, I'll pay for gas, ferry and extra for lunch... Any time from now till the 6th of May...
Many residents have recently found the Thursday 8:05 am sailing to be almost full when it arrives from Penelakut and only able to take a few cars from Thetis. The reason is that Penelakut school has 2 buses and 110 people commuting on that ferry for swim lessons through May 11th. Unfortunately, our little Thetis school also has swim lessons booked for the same time so we have 4 cars with about 18 passengers needing to get on the 8:05 am thursdays. Our school has barely all made it on each week so far, even though we are in the line up early.
This email is to let the community know of the situation and to also humbly and respectfully ask that if it is possible for you to plan to take another ferry and enable all the school kids to get on the 8:05 and attend their lessons, it would be tremendously appreciated. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and grace in helping our little school through this unforeseen challenge.

Last year's CBC news item that bears repeating before you get your BBQ out for the season:
"Canadian surgeons are urging people to throw out their wire-bristled BBQ brushes, because none of them have figured out a sure-fire way of removing the wires when they get stuck in people's throats. "
