Gloria's Walking Group

Join me every Friday morning (weather permitting) at 9am for walking on North Cove Road. I have worked out the distance so if you want to walk 1km, 2km, or 4 km it will be up to you how far you walk.

We will start by the stop sign near the hall driveway. Parking will be on the grassy patch on the side of the road. A note to drivers please keep an eye out for us during 9am and 10 am we will be on the road so please drive slow. Some will be wearing reflective vests. Please no dogs at this point will see how our group goes first.

Thank you


If you have any questions please contact me at 250-246-3091




After a couple false starts we are ready to start up 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

I’ve completed the 4-H Leadership training and we think we have enough 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. Children must be at least five years old to be members.

A representative from 4H BC is willing to come down to Thetis on Thursday September 19th. Please let me know if you’re interested in learning more or attending the information session.

Call or text 250-416-9771 to get more details
