Thank You from TICA

BIG THANKS to the more than 50 Thetis Island Community Association members who turned out Saturday to share ideas and discuss expansion of Forbes Hall. SPECIAL THANKS to the table facilitators and recorders, Ann Dickie and Gloria Taylor for sustenance, Nan Beals for Pot of Gold coffee and everyone that helped make this happen! It is clear that the community has a lot of energy to move to next steps.

Ron Bannister



Thank You 

Thank you to the caring folks at the Thetis Island Marina who called me about my dear Jack, black & white cat, who followed some folks from the ferry / Capernwray area to that neck of the woods. To go the extra mile to check the Thetis Island pet registry to see if he was on it, was so appreciated. Jack (the cat) was promptly retrieved and when back home ate a big meal, had a long drink of water and went to his bed and fell right to sleep. During this Thanksgiving weekend, I am thankful for your care and consideration. 

Thank you again, and have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Liz Joslin & Jack

“Many people are good at talking about what they are doing, but in fact do little. Others do a lot but don't talk about it;  they are the ones who make a community live.” ― Jean Vanier, Community And Growth

However I cannot do it without you! For those new to the island, we welcome everyone to share in this evening of family, celebration, and our thankfulness for the wonderful community we live in.

Thetis Island Community Church

Thetis Island Community Church will be celebrating Communion along with our usual service this Thanksgiving Sunday.  I am so glad to welcome back Capernwray's own Ben Ellershaw, who will be our speaker this week.  His teaching is always from the heart and spot on. The title of the sermon will be " Noah walked with God".  .  Our service starts at 10 and everyone is most welcome to attend. You will be so glad you came."

Thank you & Happy Thanksgiving!


Sieka Pardee Update

Seika Pardee telephoned to give the TIVFD members an update of her progress since the terrible vehicle vs. pedestrians incident on Pot of Gold corner on November the 9th, 2014 where she and Peter were both struck by a speeding vehicle. 

Seika was critically injured in the incident and has now undergone a fourth surgery this September to try to stabilize her crushed pelvis to enable her to walk with less pain. 

She is now recuperating at their new home in Saltair but is not allowed to weight-bear until January 2018 and would very much appreciate a drop-in visit from any Thetis Island friends and neighbours.  You can call Seika at 246-7784 or just drop in on your way through Saltair at 11310 Greenhill Drive.  It's the house with the big red door.



Yoga Classes

Hello all yogis and yoginis!

I will be leaving once again this winter to the fascinating and colourful India and Sri Lanka. The last class I will teach this fall is Thurs Nov 9.

I will return in late March to resume classes.

In the meantime Tatiana will be filling in for me while I am away whatever classes she can.

Until then classes are still the same: Tues and Thurs @ 9:30-10:45 am.

Hope to see you in class!




Dryer Weather

The weather has changed and many people turn from free solar clothes drying to electrical or propane appliances for that chore.  Please check your complete dryer vent system for plugs of lint in kinks and corners. Many home fires start with dryer lint.
