Coming Soon ~ Belly Dance Basics!

Belly Dance is an activity for all ages – from 6 – 96!  It is a wonderful way to get fit, flexible, improve your memory, meet friends, and have fun!  This class is designed for beginners and advanced dancers alike. Learn basic belly dance moves and then use what you’ve learned to dance to a Shakira song.

A little about me (your instructor)……

I have been belly dancing for 13 years during which time I took lessons in different styles of belly dance and have performed solo and with various troupes.  I am a certified Belly Dance Trainer and have taught for 7 years in Chilliwack, for the International Baccalaureate Society in Langley, in southern California, and of course, Thetis Island! My passion is Gypsy Style – a fusion of folk, Roma, and Raqs Sharqui.

It would be delightful to have some newcomers join my class starting Oct 23 (Monday) and every Thursday evening (7:30-9:30) thereafter at our Community Hall. The cost is $10 drop-in per class – come for 1 or come for all!  Wear bling and bring a long, full skirt.  Hip coin belts available.  Ole!

Open Sat & Sun, 11-4 PM until Thanksgiving.

Ready now, we are selling our Dornfelder grapes; u-pick for $1/lb. These grapes are good to eat (few seeds), freeze, juice, jelly and wine. 75 lbs will yield one 23L carboy; make your own or take it to McBarley's in Duncan. Please bring your own takeaway containers.

Please call for after hours tastings and sales,

250-246-9494 or 250-246-8585



Thanks from Thetis Island School

Sept 29th will mark the passing of Harry Armstrong, one year ago. While he is sadly missed by his family, others will remember him as THE QUIET MAN.

I would like to thank all Thetis Islanders for their kindnesses to me this past year - chauffeuring me to & from the ferry and taking me to all functions I wish to attend. More importantly, your help has permitted me to stay in the home we built some 37 years ago. I'm always so relieved when I return home. There's no place like Thetis, but we all know that! To name you all is prohibitive & someone always gets left out. I extend to each & every one of you,my deepest thanks.

Gratefully yours,

Yard Waste Fires Still Prohibited on Thetis 

Coastal Fire will be opening up Category 2 and 3 fires this weekend on Vancouver Island but the Thetis Island Fire Service Area will still remain closed to open fires except Campfires (with permits) at this time.  Our local conditions warrant this prohibition.  We will continue to monitor and will inform you of a change.  Thank you for your patience with your burning desires.



2017 Flu Shot Clinic Changes

This year VIHA is focussing on children for the annual flu shot drive, and is not putting on any community Flu Shot Clinics on Vancouver Island.  Instead, they are relying upon people to make an appointment with their physician or a pharmacist to receive the vaccination for the 2017/2018 Flu season.  Fees may apply. 

BUT DO NOT DESPAIR!  VIHA thinks Thetis Island is “special” and they will have their only community flu shot clinic here on our island this year for the 2017/2018 Flu Season.

Friday OCTOBER 20th at Forbes Hall. 

One little change from previous years though: 

CHILDREN & FAMILIES at 9:15 am. 

ADULTS at 9:45 to 10:45. 

Adults can come earlier than your start time, but children and families will be served first.  The VIHA nurses have to catch the ferry, so the Flu Shot Clinic ends at 10:45 because the VIHA  nurses will be out the door to catch the 10:50.  So no stragglers! 

As in the past, the terrific TIVFD Auxiliary will be delighting you with their coffee service goodies while you wait the required ten minutes after your inoculation.

We hope you will support this Flu Shot Clinic, which shows VIHA there is a need for community medical services on our island.  This Clinic is made possible by your volunteer fire fighters and the TIVFD Auxiliary and supported financially by the Thetis Island Community Fund.



Sept 2nd Watercolour Workshop

Many thanks to Rita Springer for organizing the watercolour workshop and day’s refreshment at Forbes Hall on Thetis this Labour Day weekend.  My wife, Jackie, and I had a wonderful time!  We thoroughly enjoyed the Island hospitality and spirit.

A big shout out goes to all the participants who came and enjoyed a fun filled day exploring our introduction to “Watercolour on Japanese Art Paper”.

I hope to return to give a follow-up.
