ThINC Annual Memberships at the Christmas Bazaar

The Thetis Island Nature Conservancy will be offering annual memberships at the Christmas Bazaar this year. In our first five years, as we've been developing the organization, full voting membership in ThINC has been restricted to board members. Thanks to enormous community support, we're feeling solid now and we want to open up the organization to anyone who would like to support nature education, stewardship and conservation on Thetis Island. For a donation of only $20/year for an individual or family, a membership will give you voting rights at our AGM, a subscription to our mailing list for news and program information, and discounts for Friends of the Nature House memberships and other programs throughout the year. If you are already an associate member, your first year of full membership will be free! Local business and patron memberships are also available. Membership forms can also be downloaded from our website

or picked up at the library.

Come by our table at the hall on Saturday. We'll also have cards, nature pamphlets and an opportunity to go home with an owl box or one of Roy Holloway's beautiful handmade leather bags. See you then.

Thank You for Attending - Forbes Hall Expansion

Thank you to all who attended the TICA members meeting on Sunday where the concept designs and floor plans for the Forbes Hall Expansion were presented.

Many questions were put to committee members who readily replied and after three fruitful hours membership came to a strong consensus to "keep going".

Next steps include various design aspects, fundraising and grant applications, expense and resource forecasting, volunteer recruitment and continuing member input. To offer support in any form please contact 

For more information about the meeting or the project please visit the Forbes Hall Expansion page on TICA’s website or the Thetis blog.  or

Forbes Hall Fridge Users

When you have cream or other perishable items in the fridge that you no longer want, but are still prior to the Best Before Date, please clearly mark them with “for community use”, or “please use”.

The items typically sit there until past their Best Before Dates, as no one feels that they are theirs to be used.  Marking items is one quick way to lessen waste, and reduce goods sitting abandoned in the fridge.  Once marked, anyone can toss them after their Best Before Dates
