Comment Regarding Garbage/Recycle Parcel Tax ~ S. Frankel

Please bear with me as  I would like to add some thoughts to my original BLOG of September 1st.
To those individuals, (part-time or full time residents) who are in opposition to the fees/Parcel Tax needed to sustain our solid waste/recycle system, please take a moment to consider these questions and  points:
1.  You are also paying school taxes. These taxes support the very high quality of education our students recieve both on Thetis Island and in Chemainus.
Would you use the same arguments that you use in your  oppostition to the solid waste tax?  That is; "I have no kids in school here, why sould I support my taxes going to the school!" Albeit, the school to is an essential service for our Island community.
2. Are you opposed to providing fianancial support (tax) to our  Thetis Island Improvement District which oversees our VOLUNTEER (There's that V Word again;  VOLUNTEER) Fire Department?  A very essesntial  community service. Or, would your argument again be; "I never use the TIVFD services"....You are fortunate that you never required the needs for their life saving and fire rescue services, along with other numerous areas of support; education, training, etc.
3. You may not believe in taxation for services, in part because you are a Part Time Resident". I would guess that if the need arose you certainly would make use of the various Essential Energency services. I can think of a number of examples that individuals have in fact made that "call for help".
4. Our community is a vibrant, caring, friendly place. The common factor is that people who live here, chose to do so, for the qualities, community values,and beauty of our (fortunate)location and having the good fortune to be able to live in this wonderful part of the world.  
We ALL have a responsibility to; CONTRIBUTE, SUSTAIN, GIVE BACK TO, PARTICIPATE, VOLUNTEER in our community, whether we are full-time or part-time residents. This is what makes a great community healthy and sustainable, and when added up is for our individual and the collective good.
Again, thank you for taking the time to read my opinions.

Yoga Coming!

I have had a lot of interest in starting up yoga again.  After a very busy summer, I am going to have some down time in the first part of September, and then I will start up in the 3rd week of September.  There will be some different offerings this year and some different pricing options.  I will forward more information next week.  I am going to ask for 6-week commitments from you and I will need 5-6 people per class before they will run this year.

So most yoga classes will start the week of Sept 23rd and I will be contacting all my past yoga students to let them know their current balance and ask for their input on desired classes.

I look forward to seeing you all in a couple of weeks.

Warmly, Dawn Gordon

New Comment Regarding: Further Clarification for Garbage/Recycle Parcel Tax ~ T. French

I too find it frustrating that those who are the most outspoken opponents of  the  garbage / recycling programme seldom become involved in the volunteer side  of the community and have no idea how may people give time to make the system work. Thetis has been functioning very well with volunteer supported services. The Fire Dept. for one is operational at a low cost to the taxpayer because of the dedication and sacrifice of volunteers who respond to calls for less than the cost of a package of cigarettes or a beer at the pub. The message from the few who find it unacceptable to pay for garbage / recycling  will not destroy the spirit of the folks who really own this island with their commitment to community.  The folks who make this community work so economically are the volunteers,  don't bite the hand that feeds you!
