Remembrance Day Gathering

We are still looking for a little help with the planning of the Remembrance Day Gathering on Monday, November 11th from 10:45 to 11:15 at Forbes Hall.  Nan has offered coffee "afterwards" so we will need a few people to work the kitchen cup washer.  If you are willing to bring biscuits or a cut up cake to share, that would be nice too.  If you wish to share a Remembrance Day story, that would be great.  We will have some time for that.

We have a very short (< 5 min.) video for the 2013 Remembrance Day:  with exclusive war footage used for ceremonies and high school assemblies. A tribute to all Canadian soldiers. Features actual film footage and photos from Vimy Ridge, Passchendaele, Dieppe, Ortona, Normandy, Arnhem, Holton, Holland, Belgium, Netherlands, Korea and Afghanistan. Edited by Jonathan Wagner.

We have no cenotaph on Thetis, but at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, and if it is not raining, we will stand in silence at the Forbes Hall flag pole and remember.  You may lay flowers if you wish.

Proposed Nanaimo Incinerator

A huge incinerator is proposed for duke point to burn Vancouver waste. This is a bad idea and will impact the Gulf Islands in a big and negative way as well as central Vancouver Island. Our air quality is already affected by pulp mill emissions. No way that we want the plume from a major incinerator to pollute our air and environment !!
