Thank You to the Community

A big thank you to everyone who donated towels or bedding to Friends of Furries towel drive.   

They were an important piece of the mobile vet clinic set up for 3 days on Penelakut Island by CAAT (Canadian Animal Assistance Team).  The volunteer vets and vet techs from all over Western Canada were extremely appreciative of having an ample supply of linens for their surgery tables and recovery areas.  They performed 74 spays and neuters, including 36 on feral cats trapped by Penelakut volunteers.

Philosophers Café: Monday, May 13th ~ 7:30 PM

We are meeting Monday evening at 7:30 at Overbury in the lovely glassed-in assembly room overlooking Stuart Channel and the little and big islands.  

The reconciliation sessions had quite an impact, especially with the invitation to attend the trail opening on Penelakut shortly after.  

The topic this week is global warming and climate change, which seems to be on everyone’s mind, especially given the extremes of temperature and weather being experienced here and worldwide.  

Many in the regular group have signed up with SLACK, a community-based website on which we’ve been able to download some pretty significant and challenging articles and commentary from experts and concerned citizens. 

Do have a look; I’m posting the link below. Peter Luckham will emcee this session. 

If you decide to join us for the discussion, you might want to bring along water or juice and your own glass. If you’re in the mood and have the time, why not bring along a few cookies or nibblies for the seagulls in the group.  

Cheers, Gary Geddes, 246-8176 



Wildfire Protection Kits

We ordered a few extra Wildfire Protection Kits with our spring order and there are four kits left at the firehall ready to be sold.  $175 each, includes all taxes and shipping.  

We will not be putting another order in this year.

Please email chief11@telus.net if you wish to purchase.  

Each kit contains two wildfire sprinkler heads, mounting brackets, flat forestry hose and instructions. 



The Lotus Eaters & Chanterelle Rain Screening on Galiano: June 1st

Note: The Lotus Eaters in now available free online from Canadian Film Encore +



Thetis Island Community Church

Daniel McDougal from Victoria will be speaking at Thetis Island Church on Sunday. Service starts at 10am and will be held at Pioneer Pacific Camp. Bring your mother to church on Mother’s Day.

On May 26 Andy Thomas formerly from Capernwray England now living on Thetis Island will be speaking.

During the hall renovations all services will be held at Pioneer.



Marshmallow Summers?

It makes sense these days to have a Propane campfire appliance.

No sparks, no embers, and immediate flame shut-off. You can purchase one at Costco for example for under $125 and they last for years.

One campfire sparked wildfire will cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars (which unfortunately also will last for years).

Propane campfires are normally allowed during solid fuel campfire bans. So if you haven’t already made the switch, please consider it. You can still enjoy those blackened marshmallow treats all summer, but lower the risk of wildfire on the island.



Thetis Island: Emergency Services

CVRD Cowichan Valley Regional District Sybille Sanderson, Protective Services Coordinator 250-746-2500, 


ESS: Emergency Social Services for Thetis Island is a team of 8: Mary Forbes, Petra Accipiter, Bev Stuart, Dee Smith, Donna Stadt, Veronica Shelford, & Claire Hess. Trained to respond to a single home emergency or an island wide need for respite or registration for supports for housing, food or clothing.

LERN: Local Emergency Response Neighbourhoods 

Thetis is divided into 26 LERN areas; each with a captain and back-up captain responsible for checking on their neighbourhood and letting the Fire Department know of the status, and someone on the ESS team know of a broader response is needed for community respite. A list of the ESS team and the LERN Captains are listed on http://www.thetisisland.net/emergency.htm
