Forbes Hall Expansion Project Update:

The Postponed Concrete Pour has been rescheduled for Wednesday, October 2nd.  Please be aware that seven concrete trucks, plus the pumper truck, will be traveling to and from Thetis starting at 7:15AM and throughout the day. 

Good News!The Structural Connectors, which have created significant hold-ups to the project, are due to arrive on island on Wednesday, September 25.   

Did you know?  

The original request for the kitchen was that it would be at least 1.5 times bigger than the original, to allow for safe access for workers, and some additional work & appliance space. A beverage “closet” had also been asked for, which was given approximately 65 sq ft in early plans.  With reconfigurations needed to keep the project within its maximum square footage, the kitchen lost some of that hoped-for-increase, so it will now stand at 1.4 times larger.  However, we were able to create a larger space for the beverage station, which will accommodate a large part of the kitchen’s duties, as well as food & beverage service.  It is also large enough to use the original kitchen cabinetry, including one of the sinks, the sanitizer, and a fridge.  It has a service window directly into the new Multi-Purpose Room.  

The total food and beverage kitchen/service areas will now be 2.15 times bigger than the original kitchen. 

More space for more volunteers to create food for our island gatherings! 

We want to thank our intern, “Shirlee”, for the fun project updates she provided this summer.

Please drop by the school on the 21st of October.

Loan of Tent for Get Fresh Market?

Hello Market Vendors... does anyone have a market tent we could borrow this coming Sunday?

We are hosting a food & farm market at Sea Cider in Saanich this Sunday

(tell your friends & family!)

While much of the market is under cover, rains are expected to continue and we'd like to offer a friend some extra protection for her wonderful foraged fruit & vegetable based ink paintings.

Contact Elisabeth at or 250.416.6736


Borrowed Yoga Blocks: Please Return

At the end of the summer session someone borrowed 2 teal yoga blocks and I need them back.

I forgot to write down who borrowed them and cannot remember...

If you have the blocks please contact me to make arrangements to return them as we need them for yoga classes this fall.

Thank you,



Annual Flu Shot Clinic

Please mark your November calendar for Nov. 6th, Wednesday morning, for the Annual TIVFD Community Flu Shot Clinic.  Because Forbes Hall won’t be completed by then, the Clinic will be held at the Firehall on Mission Road.  The VIHA nurses will arrive on the 9:15 ferry and must leave on the 11:10.  We are all pretty efficient now for being ready, and we have asked VIHA to send us those stickers to fill out and the info sheets to read before they arrive.

The TIVFD Auxiliary will once again be putting on the post-Shot coffee service for you to enjoy as you recuperate.  This year there is no flu mist available and children over 6 months of age will have to be vaccinated the same as adults. The vaccine is a trivalent inactivated vaccine for the influenza strains forecast to be the most prevalent in the coming months.

We will remind you again in October but it’s a good idea to plan ahead so you won’t forget.

The next Veterinary visit will be on Wednesday, October 2nd.

For an appointment please contact Dr Martin Randle in 250 436 0045

Those 85 guests will then be departing Sunday afternoon (September 22) on scattered afternoon ferry’s.
