Alberta Female Visitor Looking for Work

Good day Thetis islanders,

I am currently visiting your beautiful little island and would like to extend my stay here. I am offering 4 hours of work per day for 5 days per week in exchange for room and board. I am a middle aged female with experience in many different fields.

I have years of experience running my own farm, so can do farm work gardening or helping around the household. Handy to do almost anything as long as it is not physically too hard. I would also be interested in helping out with anything involved with sailing or the such. Hoping to hear from someone, thank you kindly!

Urgent ~ Help Needed with e-Spokes

I will be away in October. If no one can help, there will be interruptions in the eSPOKES emails.

Sending out eSPOKES is simply a matter of using your computer to paste the notices into the mailer format. Usually it can be done once a day at whatever time of day works for you. Generally, this does not take too long.  I am happy to train and work with you. 

A committee of several members taking turns to do the posting would be ideal

Please contact Claire Hess at 250-246-9445


Fire Ban Still On !!!

No fire permits yet. Continue to use your propane campfires. No open burning permitted.



Fire Hazard Rating

As of Saturday the Fire Hazard has been lowered to High. All High Risk Activities can start up again on Monday. Please be aware that the surface moisture we have has not traveled too far into the soil yet so be cautious.



We Can't Find You !!!!

The TIVFD had a call in the dark hours this morning to an address not marked on the road- in either direction!  Turning the Fire Dept. Vehicles around takes time. That’s time better spent at your emergency scene. Please mark your Lot Number clearly at your driveway, visible from both directions. This By-Law helps us to help you when you really need the help. 


PS. Aggressive Fire Safety can make a lot number post for you.  There are many examples around the island and are highly visible from both sides. 


Limited Postal Service: Monday to Wed, Sept 10-12

I will be away for a short holiday Monday to Wednesday, September 10-12.

The post office will have limited service as Mindy will be taking over as she has many other duties to perform during these days.

Thank you for your patience.

Post Master Kevin


Free Glass Patio Door

Aluminum framed 72” wide x 80” sliding glass patio door, dual pane with good seals.

Door rollers are a bit rough, but could be replaced.

Would also work as a hot bed cover in the garden.

Currently in solid waste yard for pickup.

Humpback Whale Presentation

If you are available and have time, I would strongly recommend attending Jackie Hildering's presentation on Saturday night (7 pm) at the Portal.

She is an expert on all things whale in BC and is a terrific and entertaining speaker with outstanding photographic material. 

See you there:-),

Thank You from the Kempes

Dear Thetis Islanders 

A huge thank you to all of you who could come out to our farewell party.

We were overwhelmed by your kind words and support. We do often hear that we will be missed, and truth be told we will miss you too.

Thetis is dear to our hearts and we look forward to many visits and chats as we bump into each other. We also got a new landline 250-416-7604 and 9931 Maple Street is where you can find us.

Much love 

The Kempes
