Rosemary's Memorial

Many folks turned out today to pay their last respects to Rosemary Ann Boehringer.  All the stories spoke of an amazing, caring mother & friend with a fierce thirst for knowledge.  Thank you to Gloria and her team for putting on a beautiful afternoon showing their love for a wonderful woman.

And for all you that are wondering, here's a sample of a  "start ya bastard" video.



Silvery Tree Frog

Bill spotted this pretty little frog on our walkway this morning.  Just over 3 centimeters long, with fabulous camoflauge ~ however he almost got stepped on!

from Jane Toohey, Rosemary's niece...

Rosemary was my aunt (and my Godmother). She was my father's baby sister. My parents, Don and Joan Herbert (we all live in Australia) who still live at Eugowra in New South Wales, where Rosemary was born and grew up, visited Thetis a couple of times. They loved the beauty of it. I hoped to visit Rosemary, but tragically it is too late. Rosemary was a lovely and quite remarkable lady and I am so very sad at her death. My love and very best wishes to all her friends. Xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Looking for Laptops...

I am looking for 2 free, or nearly free, laptop computers to take to Mengo Hospital in Kampala, Uganda next week.  A group of volunteers from Victoria built an AIDS wing onto the hospital and are supporting the  project in a variety of ways.  They need laptop computers.            

If you have one that you are happy to pass on, I can pick it up this weekend.

Please email Colleen Kasting at

Recycling Plastics Presentation

Many thanks to Ann Eriksson for her very informative and extremely interesting presentation on plastics and their effects on our environment and our health. Ann’s session was filled with much need information and needless to say, was highly educational. Thanks also to Stephanie Cottell for helping organize Ann’s presentation.

The presentation was well attended at our community’s sanitation (solid waste) yard, on Saturday, August 25th. It is our hope that there will be follow-up information sessions, as well as future ESPOKES postings.

In the meantime, please ensure you do your best to assist our team at the sanitation yard; you can help by cleaning and presorting your recyclable materials as well as making sure that your household garbage contains no materials that can be recycled. The volunteers and staff at the yard will be more than happy to assist you and answer any questions you may have regarding solid waste collection, recyclable materials and appropriate garbage disposal. 

Once again, our many thanks to Tim French and Vicki Walker and all the volunteers at the sanitation yard.

Memorial Tea for Rosemary Boehringer

Rosemary Boehringer passed away suddenly early Sunday morning, she was in good health and had been looking forward to some fall travel. 

All of us in the Thetis Community are grateful to have known Rosemary.  We extend our heartfelt sympathy to her family.

Please find the right time to communicate your support for her family in this difficult period.

An informal gathering to remember Rosemary will be held at 1:30pm on Saturday, September 1in Forbes Hall, Community Centre.  Please come as you are and celebrate Rosemary. 

Anyone wishing to bring floral tributes and things should co-ordinate with Gloria Taylor and use only items from their gardens.


Capernwray Watercolours & Quilting

Capernwray Harbour would like to invite Thetis Islanders to come to an art show put on by the Watercolour group that is staying at Capernwray this week.  The ladies will be around the island this week painting local scenes and will be showing and selling their work:

Thursday August 30 at 6:30 pm on the Oceanfront Patio of the Main Hall (weather permitting or it will be indoors)

There is also a quilting group here that will be doing a "Show and Share" of their work.  That will take place also on Thursday August 30 starting at 7:45 pm in the Lecture Hall.

Everyone is welcome!


Great New Round Tables at Forbes Hall...

TICA has purchased a set of round tables that seat 8.  These tables will be a great asset for the upcoming season of Soup's On and Seniors Dinners.

Thanks to all who helped make it happen, Lesley Milliken, Dee Smith, Matt Hess, Gloria Taylor, Sue & Heidi French and Dave O'Hara.


Red Crossbills Visiting...

As far as we know for the first time in over 30 years, we have a family of Red Crossbills living at our farm.  The first tell was their very different song - followed by seeing the female with her young.  Today we were excited to finally see the male, along with the female and three juveniles at our birdbath.
