Mystery Package at Post Office

Hello Thetis Islanders,

I've had a package labelled for the Post office, with no name on it, come in from Amazon. It's not a package I ordered.  If you are waiting for a package from Amazon that has not arrived please contact me to find out if this one is yours.

TICA - TIRRA Membership 2018

Thank you to the many people who have already sent in their forms and cheques to start or renew membership in TICA-TIRRA!

       Want to join us?

       Your involvement in these two important Associations on Thetis Island is welcomed and much needed:


Thetis Island Community Association is responsible for our busy Community Hall and the grounds, including the tennis courts and playground equipment. The Hall is busy year round with a great variety of activities and also provides WiFi access for anyone; even when the doors aren't open, people park outside! TICA Membership includes receiving the Quarterly Magazine.


Thetis Island Residents and Ratepayers Association is responsible for the Solid Waste and Recycling, Trails, Transportation, St. Margaret's Cemetery and is an advocate for the Community to a wide range of government agencies.

Didn't get a form sent directly to you? You can find them in the Community Hall Library or click on:

danceXchange in February

Thanks to everyone who supported the "Soul Movement" dance session last week, it was a wonderful event led by Tatiana Ishwari!

There will be another event planned for February, with date, time and details to be announced once they are confirmed.

Our intention is to continue with monthly events led or co-led by different people. Each session will have its own focus but all will be inclusive, healthful and fun!

If you are interested to lead or co-facilitate a session, or if you have a thematic request/idea for a session, please contact Kelly .

Also, feel free to indicate your interest in being involved in the visioning and planning of our cooperative danceXchange initiative.


iPhone Wanted

My iPhone 7 was stolen while I was in Hawaii.  I do not want to buy a new one at this point. 

So, I was wondering if there is someone on Thetis who has an older iPhone hanging around that they are not using and would like to sell to me at a reasonable price?

I am not back on Thetis until Sunday.  So you can contact me by email at

Improvement District ~ News

In 2016, trustee Graeme Shelford benchmarked how other islands fund their first responder services and found that Thetis received the least support from the Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA). Therefore we applied to VIHA for the same $10,000 a year subsidy that Saturna gets. As announced at the last TIRRA meeting, VIHA readily agreed that we deserve equal treatment.  We have now received the first $10,000 cheque, which is a valuable contribution towards the funding of our Fire Department's first responder service.

Loblaw's & Save-On Gift Cards

Virginia Lamb has already posted the link for the application for Loblaw's $25 grocery card.  If you qualify to receive the card, consider donating it to the local food bank - they can make your $25 donation stretch even further during times when their donations are down.


“Friends of Furries” is becoming more active within our two Island communities as more animals are needing assistance.  We would appreciate the donation of Loblaw’s gift cards to purchase dog and cat food for animals in need on Thetis and Penelakut Islands.
