SOAS Request

School Orchards Africa plants fruit trees in Tanzanian school yards and thought it would be appropriate to plant one at our local school. 

A fig tree will be donated but we still need some page wire/chicken wire and some lengths of rebar to protect the tree from the ever-marauding deer. 

If you have some kicking about in a shed and have been wondering what to do with it we certainly would be very grateful for the donation. 

Please contact Maureen at 250-246-2184 or Cecilia at 250-246-3013. Thank you


Additional Topsoil Orders

Good news - topsoil orders are re-opened! Due to popular demand, we have made a special arrangement to bring a second load of premium organic topsoil to Thetis Island. The topsoil is provided at low cost by Cinnabar Valley Farms as an annual fundraiser for the Nanaimo Track and Field Club (our daughter Kaz is now a member).

A 40 pound bag costs $5 for the topsoil and we are requesting an additional 'voluntary contribution' of $1 per bag to help with the cost of ferry transportation to Thetis since Ron needs to take his flatbed trailer and make 2 trips due to volume.

New orders (and additions to existing orders) will be taken until Friday April 14th. Please contact Kelly Bannister at to make arrangements.

--Thank you for your support from the Bannister's


TICA AGM Information

Under the New Society Act, TICA had to make some changes to the Constitution and Bylaws. In addition to the necessary changes for the New Act, TICA also made one other change to the Bylaws. These changes to the Constitution and the Bylaws need to be voted on by the membership at the AGM on Tuesday April 25. The changes can be viewed on our website website at:


Free Hearing Aid Batteries

I have 2/3 of a box of P13 hearing aid batteries that I no longer need so if there's anyone out there who uses that size let me know and I'll hand them over.

Scam Alert

Here's the latest (attempted) ploy.

Phone calls from "RBC" asking to speak to ________, in this case it was our son.

The real live person saying; "They need to get in touch with,_________, very important we speak to him/her"

The number on your display may appear as a; 1-800, or, even 1-604 (mainland BC.). RCMP suggests, "you note number and hang-up, and contact them" ***

I recently reported this to our RCMP Liaison, Staff Brissard,

Ladysmith Detachment. Ken advised me this is a "new one" for them. He followed up by contacting RBCs Media/Fraud Department.***

BTW: Ken and his partner are hoping to join our resident's for Soup's On, in the very near future. We will keep you posted. 

Many THANKS to Ken Brissard for his support
