Pillow Case Project

A number of Thetis Island ladies belong to the Dogwood Trefoil Guild (Chemainus/Ladysmith/Saltair/Thetis). We are a group of former Girl Guide/Girl Scout Leaders. Currently we are involved in a project with 8 Chemainus Pathfinder Girl Guides making dresses for use in warm 3rd World Countries or other poor areas. Our Girl Guides will learn to sew and discover more facts about the dreadful plight of young girls in poor circumstances; and those girls will receive attractive dresses made from floral, patterned or brightly coloured pillow cases!

Do you have a few gently used pillow cases to donate? We also need double faced bias tape, pins, narrow elastic and decorative buttons. Rick-Rack and lace would also be great for decoration! An opportunity to clean out the sewing box, eh?

Address all donations to Box 16-2 or bring them to Wednesday "Soup's On" or call 250.246.9770 (Dee or Virginia) Thanks so much!

Outdoor Burn Permits 

Starting April 1st a TIVFD Burn Permit is required for all outdoor burn piles, incinerators or campfires. 

Please call the Permit Pager AFTER 9 a.m. and BEFORE 5 p.m. starting on April 1st, or apply on-line starting April 1st.  The permit pager number starting on April 1st is: 250-715-9131...follow the directions given (in other words, enter the number you are calling FROM when asked.  Don't enter the permit pager number...we already know that one.) 

You can also go to and click on the Burn Permit link to apply on-line.  We check the on-line requests daily but we are not sitting in front of the computer 24/7 so please make your request ahead of time. 

The hazard board by the ferry dock will give you the latest fire hazard rating, as will the TIVFD website.  Please access the Burning Regulations for information on what you must know to have a legal fire.

Thank you, and have a safe fire season.

Yoga Cancelled for March 26, 27, & 28

Hello everyone,

I am cancelling this week's classes - my immune system requires rest, so therefore I am going to take care of myself once again this week.  My deepest apologies, take care of yourself and I will see you again on your mat come the first week of April.  Watch for new class ideas yoga for golfers, yoga for gardeners, etc..

Greetings from the Thetis Island Community Church

Blessings to all of you as you prepare your hearts to transition from Palm Sunday to Good Friday this week.  Garry Wicket will be giving the message this Sunday  using the Scripture Reading of  John 10: 1-10, “ I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved.”  Tim French will lead the service. Please keep the Missions we support in mind as you plan for your offerings. 

As you know, we normally only have two formal services a month  - on the second and fourth Sundays but because Easter falls on the 5th Sunday of March we  are meeting again.

How could we not?!   If you are new to the island services begin at 10 AM ; everyone is most welcome  to attend and we are “baby friendly”.

Next Sunday we welcome Chris Thomas back to the island and he will again share with us the Easter message.  It is my turn to lead the service.  You may recall Thetis Island Church has a particular tradition for Easter morning  in that we fill a wooden statue of a cross with daffodils – a symbol of rebirth and renewal- so please bring  your flowers along and tuck them into the cross as you come in.
