After a Long Break...


So much has happened in Tahsis since I last posted on the 24th of April!  I went away to visit family for 10 days, then went on another trip and have been back for a short time and whew!  Everyone's been busy while I was gone!

The biggest event was the Ubedam Theatre Society's presentation of Cricket and Claudette.  They sold over 100 tickets and put on a great show.

Another Ubedam Theatre Society event was a murder mystery party held at Sally's Grill, which was transformed into the speakeasy "The Cat's Meow" for the evening.  24 people came in character and had to solve a murder in their midst.  The roaring twenties was the inspiration for the story and costumes and everyone got into it in a big way!  Thanks to Stephanie O. for masterminding this fun night!

Another special announcement is that the Westview Marina is in full swing again this summer, welcoming fishers, and adventurers of all kinds to Tahsis.  I'll be posting soon about the Rock the Dock musicians every Friday.

Another event in early May was the Nootka Sound Economic Development Corporation ceremony to thank Tony Ellis and Frank Collins for being directors of that organization for many years.

Post from the Tahsis Community Garden Society Blog

I'm sharing this blog post from Silvie at the Tahsis Community Garden Society Blog, a great event and our local Community Garden yesterday!  Check out the garden blog, lots of excitement for gardening in our beautiful climate!


We finally got a nice sunny day in Tahsis and the timing was perfect - there were 50 asparagus crowns to go into the 
Farm to School garden. 
 


A last minute call went out to CMESS students and a few were able to participate in the planting with Organic Master Gardener Terry. 



Our resident 'Duck Lady' Juanita, suggested that if anyone had a birthday today, that would be a good way to remember the planting.  Resident 'Corgi Lady' Silvie, piped up, 'why it's the Queen's 91st birthday!'

So we planted asparagus crowns on Her Majesty's birthday - and we even had a (royal) Corgi there to supervise, with Maester Percy the Spaniel as (official) Advisor.  

 

Granger digs in.
 

 Beneath the Holly tree, Natasha planted the primroses that were used to decorate the food table at our AGM.  
The Mason Bees will enjoy these.  

Lining up the planting area as 
Cookie the Corgi circles the group. 

Sweet Percy waits for a treat

Beautiful day, thank you Terry for sharing your knowledge and thanks to the young Tahsites who came out to help.  We'll remember this planting day in the years to come when the asparagus is enjoyed @ Farm to School.  
&
A Happy Birthday to Queen Elizabeth!
