4H Club 

We are looking to start a community 4-H club here on the island for our children and youth. 

For those who don't know, 4-H is a youth development program sponsored in part by the Ministry of Agriculture.  Their motto is "learn by doing" and the '4-H' stands for their pledge:  

- My HEAD to clearer thinking,

- My HEART to greater loyalty,

- My HANDS to larger service,

- My HEALTH to better living,

- For my Club, my Community and My Country.

Check out more details here

We have completed the 4-H Leadership training and need at least six confirmed members to get started!  You don’t need to have a farm to join, there are lots of opportunities for smaller projects and kids can lease animals as well.  We will have an information session on Thursday March 1st. Please RSVP to for details.

Yarn Wanted

I am embarking on a craft project using yarn and am looking for any leftover strands or balls not being used.

Although I would prefer to work with wool I am open to using acrylic yarn as part of the experimental process and would appreciate anything to get started.

No piece is too short or colour too odd

I can come pick up at your convenience.

Thank you,

Tatiana or 250-246-9175


Package to UPS

I have a package that I need to send via UPS and apparently the closest UPS store to us is in Victoria.

If anyone is going to Victoria some time next week and could drop-off my package at one of the UPS stores there I would be immensely grateful.

Thanks in advance,

Broom Removal

Two forestry technicians visited our island this month to reclassify our forest cover for the Wildfire Community Planning Process. They advised that getting rid of scotch broom plants will reduce the fire risk during dry summers. Broom is easy to ignite and burns furiously. To mitigate wildfire potential, particularly along your road frontage, cut broom before the seeds form after flowering.  The technicians noted the heavy infestations along the North Cove Road area but broom can be found (and should be destroyed) all over the island.



Next Veterinary Visit ~ February 28th

Next veterinary visit be Wednesday, February 28th.

For an appointment please phone 250 436 0045 or email

Bonded Pair of Cats Need Home

Attention Thetis Island Cat Lovers:

Aislinn's friend from VIU, Sara Holmes, is unfortunately unable to keep her two neutered  3 year old cats Bemo and Gus in her current housing, and is looking for a family to take and love them.  They are brothers and have been together since birth and their ideal home would adopt them both.  

Thanks for considering and/or sharing with those who might be looking for a couple of feline family members. Sara is very appreciative!

If you are interested in them, please email Sara at  She has lots of information to share about their habits, behaviour, likes,etc.  Photos available by request or at  (if you have an Instagram account.)


Chemainus Elementary Bookfair

There will be a Scholastic Book Fair at the Chemainus Elementary School Library on Feb. 26th and 27th from 8:30-3:30.

This is a great place to purchase books for kids that are from aged zero to 13.
