Yoga Classes ~ Need to cancel a few...

Hello everyone,

I need to cancel yoga next week, all classes, May 7, 8, 9, and 14 - I have to have a tooth pulled on Wednesday.  So all classes are cancelled until Wednesday, May 15, as there is voting in the hall on Tuesday the 14th.  See ya at the polls!

Take care and enjoy this amazing sunshine for the weekend!

Come and See the Learning Garden Slope Project

Come and check out the fantastic results of the slope stabilization workshop at the Learning Garden behind Forbes Hall. Over the past two weekends, participants have learned the basic techniques for stabilizing slopes with natural materials and have put this education into practice to stabilize and beautify the slope created by the installation of the garden water tank. 

The process was inspiring to all who participated and the results are a wonderful addition to the garden. The next project is to create a screen and bench/planter area at the top of the slope to help make the Learning Garden an inviting space for everyone.

Thanks to Stephanie Cottell for facilitating the workshop!

PS As you walk around Forbes Hall, please be careful in and of the construction area. 

Thank you! TICA


Changes at Forbes Hall ~

Accessibility improvements at the front of the Community Centre are being implemented over the next month. The first stage will be site preparation for an enlarged ramp and drop-off area  southeast of the building. 

A gentle warning:  This ramp area will not be "user friendly" until the paving is completed in late May. 

The project was described in the Winter issue of the Thetis Island Quarterly, click here to read report.
