Have your

say

Thanks to our donors, supporters

and team volunteers,

through your advocacy, time

and input, the West Kootenay

EcoSociety has reached

an important milestone. We

are proud to share the draft

West Kootenay 100% Renewable

Energy Plan, a collaboration

with the nine local

governments that have committed

to 100% renewable

energy by 2050: Castlegar,

Kaslo, Nelson, New Denver,

Slocan, Silverton, Rossland,

Warfield & the RDCK.

The draft plan is ready for

the next level of your input.

You can help identify the

priority areas that will make

your community healthier

and safer with a more stable

economy.

How do you think we can

make sure public transit,

safe bike lanes and sidewalks,

and electric vehicles

are accessible? Let your local

government know you support

renewable energy being

the priority in your town for

❤❤

healthier and safer people in

next year’s budget, and each

year after.

We need everyone to complete

the renewable energy

plan next steps online

survey: https://westkootenayrenewableenergy.ca

to make sure your voice is

heard.

People like you are making

great strides in the transition

to renewable energy

in the West Kootenay that

benefit your very own

community. Keep up the

momentum to create more

opportunities for you, your

family and neighbours.

Shiloh

NELSON

Shiloh is the type of cat that wants to be significantly higher

than you, so she’s always perched up on a cage or in a tree (cat

tree). Shiloh is a happy girl and drools when being pet. She is

often the quietest one in the room and watches from afar. Once

she gets comfortable with you she really becomes the sweetest

loving little girl. If you’re willing to give her a little time and

effort she will definitely make you the happiest family.

How to clear

76 km of snow

The City of Trail has 76 kilometers

(152 lane kilometers) of roads to maintain

throughout the city and has 14

pieces of equipment including loaders,

sand spreaders, snow plows, and a

grader. From mid-November to March,

the city has at least one employee on

duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The

number of employees involved in snow

removal is dependent on the amount

and duration of snowfall.

Snow removal priorities

City streets are maintained on a priority

basis as follows:

#1 Priority -

Major collectors

and emergency

routes, i.e. Hospital

Hill, Warfield Hill

Road (from Warfield

Teck Operations

to Highway

22), Fifth Avenue

Hill, and hills with

extreme gradients

and significant

volume, i.e. Green

Avenue.

#2 Priority - Bus

routes.

#3 Priority - Downtown core, including

downtown parking lots and the

Trail & Leisure Aquatic Centre.

#4 Priority - Hills with lighter traffic

volumes, i.e. Lilac Crescent, Park Street.

#5 Priority - All remaining residential

streets and parking lots.

When all 5 priorities have been

accomplished, lanes will be plowed

and all other streets will be widened.

City-owned sidewalks, including the

Victoria Street Bridge sidewalk and

the Columbia River Skywalk, will be

cleared following heavy snowfall. In

general, sand is not used on level streets

except when extreme icing conditions

are experienced.

Snow removal in the downtown area

is undertaken after a heavy snowfall

this is normally done in the evening

hours. Other designated business areas

will be cleared as required.

The city plow trucks plow with the

traffic flow. Snow is cleared from the

centre of the road to the right curb side.

The city will not clear snow windrows

from any private driveway.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

• Remove all unused vehicles,

boats, trailers, etc. from the streets

from November to March.

• Ensure that any vehicles required

Native plants

reintroduced

The Snk’mip Marsh Santuary is a 17.4 hectare

wetland located at the north end of Slocan

Lake. The wetland is a vital aquatic and riparian

ecosystem because it is an important stopover

for migrating birds, it is home to many species

at risk, it is important for water filtration and

flood control, and it acts as a carbon sink. After

many years of industrial use, the site was purchased

by Valhalla Foundation for Ecology in

2017. They have been working to return the site

to its previous state as a healthy wetland.

Snk’mip is on Sinixt territory (Snk’mip is the

Sinixt word for “head of the lake”). Therefore,

consultation with a local Sinixt spokesperson

has influenced the list of species planted. Notably,

beaked hazelnut (Corylus cornuta) is a food

which is traditionally harvested in this area.

Many different native species were planted

by community volunteers and Lucerne School

students at Snk’mip this fall. Biologists recommended

species that would benefit wildlife at

Snk’mip. Red-osier dogwood (Cornus stolonifera)

was chosen as it provides food for moose

and deer. The dogwood flowers feed beneficial

pollinators and grouse like to eat the berries.

The low, dense growth creates shady hiding

places for reptiles and amphibians.

Wetland restoration experts were also consulted.

Black cottonwood (Populus balsamifera)

was selected for its fast growth, this will

help to quickly stabilize the soil and create

shade. Mature cottonwoods create great wildlife

trees which can benefit birds, insects and bats.

RDCK supports local projects

The RDCK board is supporting a number of local initiatives,

including sending a letter of support to both the City of Nelson

and Village of Kaslo for their application to the British Columbia

British Columbia Community, Culture and Recreation

Infrastructure intake of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure

Program (ICIP) for their new public library projects.

As well, the board has sent a letter of support to the Village

of Salmo for two separate initiatives: their application to

the Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure Program

intake to restore Salmo’s historic train station and their application

to the Rural and Northern Communities Grant intake for

a new, multi-purpose community facility at Salmo’s KP Park.

The RDCK will partner with and apply on behalf of Whitewater

Ski Resort Ltd. in an application to the Province of British

Columbia Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure

Program Destination development stream for its Whitewater

Backcountry Adventure Lodge and Camping Development

Project in the amount of $1,000,000.

The board approved the amendment of the Riondel Fire Protection

Area Service Bylaw. Due to the high demand of fire

services in the area, the amendment will allow the RDCK to

increase the maximum requisition in the service establishing

bylaws by 25% or less every five years without inspector

approval. The maximum amount of money that may be requisitioned

annually shall be $189,000 or $1.854/$1,000 of net

taxable value of land and improvements within the service

area, whichever is greater.

The RDCK Fire Service will be preparing communication to

the community of Riondel to present the need for this increase

Regional District of Central Kootenay Fire Halls. The 2020

Financial Plan will be amended to increase Capital Expenditures

by $32,000 at each of the 17 fire halls.

The new vehicle exhaust extraction system will ensure clean

air and safety to all fire service members in the fire hall environment.

Ask me my pronoun

Celebrating and acknowledging diversity in our schools is

now more important than ever before. The Kootenay Lake

School District is committed to providing excellence for all

learners in a nurturing environment, and one that respects

each person’s unique identity, values, beliefs and traditions.

As a District we are committed to many initiatives to further

support diversity in our schools. Did you know:

This October, as a District we celebrated LGBTQ+ History

month to help bring further awareness to gender diversity.

Video content, biographies and other resource links are available

on all school websites to learn more about the achievements

of LGBTQ+ icons and their contributions throughout history.

Learn more: www.sd8.bc.ca/events/lgbtq-history-month

On October 21, as a District we celebrated International

Pronouns Day. Asking and correctly using someone’s pronouns

is one of the most basic ways to show your respect

for their gender identity. District staff has begun to add personal

pronouns to their email signatures to help further create

awareness about why pronouns matter. Check out the video

links and resources on our website: www.sd8.bc.ca/events/

international-pronouns-day

Our teachers and staff at Kootenay Lake school district

are learning about how to support diversity and inclusivity

through professional development opportunities. The well-attended

Pro-D workshop provided by the ARC Foundation, an

innovator in SOGI inclusive education, was one such opportunity

that was offered to staff this fall.

Scott Rothermel, Manager of Safe Schools at SD8 commented,

“It’s important we start with building awareness and increase education

around sexual orientation and gender identity in order to

make our school environments more inclusive and safe.”

Rothermel is working to establish a SOGI adult lead at all

the schools in the school district. That individual’s role will

be to be an ally to the student LGBTQ+ community and they

will work with Scott to lead additional education pieces. “I am

working towards having a SOGI lead summit, to bring these

people together to help build further capacity in the district,”

said Rothermel.

Developing policies and upholding them to these values is

another way in which the District can support diversity and

inclusivity. Read our Policy 330 Sexual Orientation Gender

Identity https://www.sd8.bc.ca/board/policies

In addition, more than a dozen bathrooms district-wide are

on track for new gender-neutral bathroom designation and

signage. A rainbow tile project is well underway at Wildflower

school in Nelson and other schools are looking into rainbow

paint projects to help support diversity and inclusivity.

“Mostly, we want to create a safe place for our students, one

that is without judgement,” shared Rothermel.

Writing about

community

The Slocan Lake Arts Council is sponsoring

a writing workshop “What is Happening

Here? Writing About Community.” Due to

pandemic health guidelines, workshop attendance

will be limited to six people, and social

distancing will be observed.

“We’ll be looking at how best to capture in

words the people around us, whether in the

form of fiction, memoir, family history, or

poems,” said workshop convenor Tom Wayman,

a Winlaw writer.

Half the workshop time will be spent considering

participants’ own writing, Wayman

said. Registrants are asked to send five to ten

pages of material they’d like considered by the

workshop to him at appledor@netidea.com

by Friday, November 20.

The other half of workshop

time will involve writing exercises

and consideration of work

by other authors who have written

about community.

Wayman’s books about the

Slocan Valley include Winter’s

Skin (Oolichan Books, 2013),

poems about the valley in winter,

illustrated with photos by

local photographers Jeremy

Addington and Rod Currie. A

collection of Wayman’s short

fiction about the valley, The

Shadows We Mistake For Love,

was published by Douglas &

McIntyre in 2015. His most

recent volume was published in

March by Harbour, Watching a

Man Break a Dog’s Back: Poems

for a Dark Time.

The workshop will be held

November 28 and 29 at the Slocan

Lake Arts Centre (formerly

the Silverton Gallery) at 421

Lake Ave. (Highway 6 and 4th

St.), Silverton, BC. Pre-registration

is required. The fee is $60.

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid,

broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve

a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill

each row, column and box. Each number

can appear only once in each row, column

and box. You can figure out the order in

which the numbers will appear by using the

numeric clues already provided in the boxes.

The more numbers you name, the easier it

gets to solve the puzzle!

Selkirk College formalizes plan

for the campus vision

Presented at the Selkirk College Board of Governor’s October

meeting, the Campus Master Plan 2020-2035 is a detailed

document that sets out a roadmap for the institution’s short

and long-term outcomes.

Stating that a campus is more than a collection of teaching

facilities, it presents the idea that Selkirk College is a network

of people, ideas, activities and information that are the drivers

of change. The document lays out a vision for a compact, animated,

active and sustainable campus community.

The Campus Master Plan 2020-2035, pays special attention

to actions that can be taken in the next five years at its facilities

in Castlegar, Nelson, Trail, Grand Forks, Kaslo and Nakusp.

Recognizing that all locations have unique features and specific

needs, the plan stresses that the college continue to ensure

that there is a common spirit amongst all sites that places

emphasis on the student.

The action items in the plan range from smaller projects

such as welcoming spaces, sustainable landscaping, enhanced

transportation and improvements to technology in the classroom

to major capital projects that will revitalize some of the

college’s aging facilities.

With a major $23 million project recently completed at Nelson’s

trades-based Silver King Campus, the focus on significant

capital planning has shifted to the Castlegar Campus.

Immediate needs such as additional student housing spaces

in both Castlegar and Nelson factor significantly into the college’s

ability to move forward with growth in enrolment. The

master plan also addresses the college’s current goal to purchase

the downtown Trail building that houses its programs

and other community amenities. The college leases its Tenth

Street Campus from the City of Nelson, but future planning for

that location is also considered a priority.

You can find out more and read the entire Campus Master Plan

2020-2035 at: selkirk.ca/strategic-plan/campus-master-plan.

Interior Health issues

COVID-19 alert

Interior Health is alerting residents throughout the region

that surging COVID-19 activity has become a concern.

Due to higher rates of COVID-19 being detected, Interior

Health is concerned by the upward trend and frequency of

new clusters in the region.

The provincial health officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, has issued

regional orders for Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health.

These orders are not currently directed at Interior Health;

however, we need your support to avoid stringent measures in

the Interior Region.

Interior Health urges against any non-essential travel. This

means no unnecessary visits to the Lower Mainland or other

jurisdictions with surging cases.

COVID-19 cases in schools, health-care settings, and workplaces

are disruptive but not unexpected. These cases reflect

increased COVID-19 activity in the community. You can play

a role in preventing transmission in our communities by following

this guidance:

• Maintaining our social connections are important for

our wellbeing. However, please keep your bubble small

and limited to your household and a handful (up to six)

close friends.

• When planning your holiday gathering, please avoid

travel and choose to celebrate with individuals in your

bubble.

• Physical distancing measures are especially challenging

for young people. It is important they also keep

their bubble small and, as much as possible, limit their

interactions to a close group of friends from within their

school cohort.

• Essential workers, such as health-care workers and

teachers, play a critical role in our communities and

therefore it is imperative they also keep their bubble

small.

• Remember: The provincial health officer’s orders to

household gatherings applies province-wide. This means

no more than six people from outside your household

bubble should gather in your home.

As cases surge, Interior Health is committed to ensuring

you have timely access to COVID-19 testing in order to diagnose,

investigate and contact trace each case of COVID-19.

We are counting on each and every resident in the Interior

to help us keep our case count low by following the outlined

recommendations.

For more information about COVID-19 testing, visit https://

news.interiorhealth.ca/news/testing-information/

The RDCK has been working with other local governments

and event organizers in the Kootenay’s, including minor hockey

associations, junior hockey teams and other user groups to create

a common set of guidelines that are consistent from facility

to facility. It is imperative that all facility users follow the policies

and procedures laid out by each facility. Face coverings

must be worn at all times in RDCK facilities, except in the field

of play.

“Following the guidance of the Provincial Health Officer and

the British Columbia Recreation and Parks Association we ask

for your patience and understanding as we implement these

policies,” said Joe Chirico, RDCK General Manager of Community

Services. “This continues to be a changing landscape

and we are doing our best to ensure the health and safety of

our staff and all users while meeting the requirements of the

provincial health orders. ”

Recreation and park services continue to be reviewed regularly

as new information and protocols become available. For

the most up to date information on RDCK facilities and its

COVID-19 safety plans, please go to www.rdck.ca/recreation.

RDCK implements new

spectator policy

On October 30 the BC Provincial Health Officer updated its

guidelines on gatherings and events. This order outlines the

safety requirements for allowing a maximum of 50 patrons

to attend events. These requirements are extensive in order to

ensure the safety of our communities. The Regional District of

Central Kootenay (RDCK), as well as other local municipalities

throughout the region and across the province, are working

through the British Columbia Recreation and Parks Association

to create effective protocols that can be implemented in

our arenas, meeting rooms and other public indoor gathering

spaces to meet public health requirements. Until this work is

completed, the RDCK will not permit patrons at any event held

at its facilities. A ‘patron’ is defined as an individual who is not

essential to the event taking place, such as a spectator.

In the interim the RDCK has adopted some best practices to

keep the community safe and our youth active:

• Sport organizations can allow one responsible adult per

participant if required to assist with the event for children

under nine years of age (for hockey this is U9 and

lower) as per their COVID-19 Safety Plan;

• Sport organizations can allow four responsible adults

per team if required to assist with the event for children

older than nine, but younger than 11 (U11);

• Sport organizations can allow one responsible adult for

any participant who requires special assistance in order

to participate;

• These responsible adults will be deemed essential personnel

volunteers with a role in conducting the event

game or practice/training session.

“We understand the impact and frustration of our user

groups in meeting the requirements of the Provincial Health

Officer for gatherings and events,” said Craig Stanley, manager

of recreation at the Creston and District Community Complex

and Chair of the RDCK Arena Re-Opening Committee. “We

must all take responsibility and do our part for the safety of

all and continually focus our efforts to help stop the spread of

COVID-19.”

Tutti a tavola a

mangiare!

Fall is traditionally the time of year when

people start stocking their pantries by canning

and preserving the bounty from their

gardens.

And for many Italian Kootenay homes,

that fall tradition involves making their

own homemade tomato sauce. This coveted

tomato sauce is used as the base for making

traditional Italian spaghetti sauce and is used

on a variety of pastas, which is often the centrepiece

of their meals.

So this year, after the great success of organizing

their first-ever Italian sausage fundraiser,

the Nelson Italian-Canadian Society

has decided to fundraise again and step back

into the kitchen to cook up two types of traditional

homemade spaghetti sauce, one meatbased,

the other vegetarian.

The homemade sauce will be made from

an authentic recipe that uses canned crushed

tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, onions,

garlic, olive oil, wine, salt, pepper, fresh and

dried herbs. No preservatives, no gluten, no

dairy. Just really good food.

The spaghetti sauce will be sold in 1-litre

plastic containers for $12 each. All proceeds

go to support charitable initiatives in Nelson.

“The Society volunteers were humbled by

the overwhelming support for our successful

Italian Sausage fundraiser. And when the

idea was suggested that we could fundraise

again and get back into the kitchen to make

spaghetti sauce, there was no hesitation” says

NICS president Paul Boscariol. “Fundraising

with food has been a long-standing tradition

for the society and we’re happy to be able to

continue to contribute to charitable causes in

the community.”

Use the link below to access the NICS secure

online store where you can place your order.

Pre-orders for both types of spaghetti sauce

are limited and the sale runs until November

27, 2020. Don’t be disappointed, order your

spaghetti sauce soon!

square.site/

For people who may not have access to a

computer, but would still like to place a cash

or cheque order, order forms are available at

DeVito Shoes, 411 Hall St. in Nelson.

The pick-up date is December 5 from 2 to

5 pm at the Nelson District Rod & Gun Club.

If you have any questions, you can call Paul

Boscariol at 250-505-6482 or email nelsoncanadianitaliansociety@gmail.com.

Fall and winter at the

Taghum Hall!

Taghum Hall continues to offer opportunities

to bring people together in a safe manner

this fall and winter—including two great

events coming up.

In a timely opportunity to produce some

beautiful Christmas cards or gifts, teacher,

muralist, and scenic painter Margaret Stacey

will lead “Brushes and Lunch” participants to

create a number of art miniatures on Sunday,

November 22 from 10am to 2pm. This popular

artist has taught at Nelson’s Learning in

retirement and Rotary’s “Corks and Canvas”

events, among others.

Instruction, lunch (vegetarian rice bowl,

tea/coffee, and dessert), and painting supplies

are included in the price, with a reduced

cost for folks with their own painting supplies.

COVID-19 protocols are in place, and

pre-registration is required.

Also in the works is the Taghum Hall

Country Christmas Faire on Saturday,

December 12 from 10am to 3pm. Caroling,

musical entertainment, hot chocolate and

spiced apple cider, lots of craft vendors, and a

Kids Only Market where kids can buy gifts for

the family for ridiculously low prices (nothing

more than $5) are all featured. Santa Claus

has promised to stop by! This event will be

largely held outside, with the Kid’s Only Market

inside the hall (limited entry).

For more information and to register for

Brushes and Lunch, and for vendors who

wish to book a spot at the Country Christmas

Faire, please email taghumhall@shaw.ca.

For full information on activities at the

Taghum Community Hall please visit

taghumhall.ca.

Join a Book Club

Did you know that the Nelson Public

Library has book clubs for kids and teens?

The cool thing about the Kootenay Teen Book

Club is that we ask the authors to join us! We

get to ask them all the questions. This month,

Cyndi Sand-Eveland will be our guest!

There is also a Mother Daughter Book Club.

This month, we are reading a enemy-turn

friend-then crush kind of book called Tweet

Cute. Great name right?

Kootenay Girls is a new, mother-daughter

book club for younger girls (ages 11-13)

where we are reading A Handful of Time, a

classic Canadian novel by beloved author Kit

Pearson.

If you have any questions about which club

might be the best fit for your kids, please send

an email to mstorey@nelson.ca

Nelson Public Library

Help support Nelson

and Area Friends of

the Family

Nelson and Area Friends of the Family was

created in 2000, and provides funding for

travel expenses to families who must travel to

seek medical diagnosis or treatment outside

of Nelson and area. Our organization assists

approximately 20 families per year with funding,

advice and support.

The majority of families who receive support

travel to locations such as Vancouver

to access B.C. Childrens’ Hospital, as well as

other places with specialists.

Friends of the Family rely on donations to

provide support and have created an opportunity

to individuals and members to become

members of the organization. Nelson and

Area Friends of the Family annual memberships

are available for individuals, families

and businesses.

Businesses receive a certificate which they

can display, which in turn helps raise awareness

of our organization. Help us help families

by becoming or renewing your membership

KidSport Remembers

“Magoo”

​KidSport Nelson has recently received a

$1,000 donation in memory of our beloved

character and former committee member

Gary McQuaid, who passed away recently in

August 2020.

If others wish to honour “Magoo”, donations

can be forwarded to: ​KidSport Nelson

at https://kidsportcanada.ca/british-columbia/nelson/​

. You can specify “Nelson Chapter”

on the donation form or contact them

at kidsportnelson@gmail.com to make other

arrangements.

Although smaller in size, Gary did everything

with a big heart... whether it was playing,

coaching or volunteering and was a very

competitive opponent. Gary’s teams, realized

success resulting in League and Provincial

Championships at CIAU (St. Francis Xavier),

WIHL (Nelson), and ASHL (Calgary) levels.

At all levels, Gary was a scholarship student-athlete

leading to his BA Degree and

Professional Teaching Certificate.

Ever seeking new experiences, Gary was

player-coach in Holland in 1969. Success

continued into his coaching career, while

co-coaching with Ted Hargreaves, the Nelson

Leafs were lead to two consecutive KIJHL

Divisional Championships and Regular Season

League 1st Place (1989 and 1990). The

Leafs’ accumulative records for both seasons

GP - 85; W - 76; L - 7; T- 2 are team all-time

records.

Gary’s contribution extended to coaching

Nelson Minor Hockey teams from 1975 to

1985 (PeeWee to Juvenile). With the completion

of NCCP Level IV Coaching Certification,

Gary became involved in the BC

Hockey’s Best Ever program as coach and

instructor.

Gary capped-off his coaching career in

2006-07 while coaching the West Kootenay

Wildcats to the BC Female Midget

Championship.

In addition to being a fourteen-year member

of the KidSport Nelson Committee,

where he will be missed greatly, he served on

the Ernie Gare Scholarship Society and Ted

Hargreaves Fund.

His KidSport family misses him greatly.

KidSport is an organization which pays

for kids’ sports registration fees and equipment,

where financial barriers may exist, So

ALL Kids Can Play! something that Gary

believed in passionately!

Did you see a wolverine?

Fearsome, strong and solitary, the wolverine, the largest

terrestrial weasel, is a tough carnivore that needs huge, wild

areas to survive. Despite its awesome reputation, the wolverine

is not invincible.

Wolverines might be endangered in the US and are of Special

Concern in BC and under the Canadian Species at Risk

Act. Why? Wolverine habitat everywhere is increasingly

impacted by human activity. Climate change is melting away

the deep spring snow pack wolverines rely on for survival.

How do these changes contribute to the decline in their numbers

seen in many places?

Wolverine Watch’s research aims to better understand the

effects of human activity on wolverine distribution, reproduction,

connectivity and gene flow in Canada’s Northern

Columbia Region, the Southern Columbia Region and the

Canadian portion of the Crown of the Continent ecosystem.

We would like to hear from you if you see a wolverine, wolverine

sign (tracks, scats, den), or what you might think was a

wolverine sign. We’re collecting submissions from anywhere

in Canada, and are particularly interested in sightings within

the Selkirks, Purcells, Monashees, Cariboos and Canadian

Rockies. You can get more information and report your sighting

at www.wolverinewatch.org

Hospice breathes

life and meaning

into branding

Our leading local hospice society has

successfully breathed life and meaning

into its branding in a bid to modernise

its approach to end of life care

and management of grief. The goal is to

boost awareness of the caring and compassionate

range of free family-centric

services offered by hospice.

The passionate group of volunteers at

The Greater Trail Hospice Society, which

operates from the Kiro Wellness Centre

3 bed, 3 bath, legal suite, lots of parking

on Columbia Avenue in Trail, have officially

unveiled the society’s new logo

which features a heart at its core being

supported in forward motions and has

been designed to represent accountability.

It has been launched on a new

website alongside a revamped mission

and core values. Emerging from a strategy

initiated by funding received from

Columbia Basin Trust, it’s hoped the

logo and website will extend the organisation’s

cross generational reach and

increase engagement within the heart

of the community served, from medical

professionals and volunteers to patients

and their families.

“To grow as a society, we need to be

clear about what we do, who we care

for, who we help, how we help them and

how others can get involved. The brand

refresh will ultimately enable more

patients and families to understand our

collaborative companioning, support,

end of life planning and grief services.

By improving communication with

our ambassadors, fundraisers and volunteers,

and attracting new ones, our

community can help us drive forward

the importance of palliative care services

across the whole of Trail, Rossland

and its surrounding areas,” says board

secretary Gail Potter.

“Our hospice society is much more

focused on life and living well than it

is on anything else. For the newly diagnosed

we support a life that is filled

with as much quality, richness, dignity

and independence as possible in their

preferred place of care. We encourage

a life filled with concrete goals, acceptance,

positivity, and continued support

for those who they will leave behind,”

says board chair and retired community

nurse Brenda Hooper who first started

co-ordinating the Hospice’s work when

it started in 1987. Like many of her

team of volunteers and board members,

she uses her healthcare know-how and

first hand experience of bereavement to

help, advocate, educate, signpost and

offer practical support to entire families

affected by life limiting illness, end of

life care and grief. “As a community, we

are responsible for building strong support

for the dying and grieving, relieving

the pressure on an overburdened

healthcare system and ensuring no one

dies or grieves alone because of COVID

protocols.” she adds.

Society provided an extra layer of vital community support

by connecting with people who just received a life-limiting

diagnosis through the research-based Nav-Care program. 45

patients and their families were helped to manage and navigate

their way through a variety of life-limiting illnesses from

cancer and dementia to renal, lung and heart conditions.

As well as providing active listeners, advocates, respite for

caregivers, friendly visitors and companionship, volunteer

services also incorporate advanced care planners and ‘Navigators’

who can signpost and connect users to useful resources

and help anticipate their future needs. Grief services, which

have primarily transitioned to online during the pandemic,

include regular support groups for children, one on one support

and an eight-week adult program.

Shop locally, shop virtually

The Kootenay Gallery of Art is offering Christmas at the

Gallery, the annual exhibition and sale of creations by local

artisans. But with the current health circumstances, the gallery

has set up new events and protocol to offer safe and healthy

shopping options.

“We will be limiting the number of visitors in the gallery to

20 people at a time. As a result, we are expanding our usual

opening event from a couple of hours in the evening to an allday

open house, from 12 noon to 7 pm on November 13. We

are also having a special members-only event to thank them

for their support,“ explains executive director Val Field.

The gallery has also a couple of online options for those

who don’t want to be out in public extensively or for those

who don’t have time to shop. Earlier this spring, when the gallery

was closed to the public, the staff created an online gift

shop, www.kootenaygallerygifts.com. Not everything from

the physical gift shop is available online but there are a good

number of pottery, jewellery and wood work items there. The

site uses credit card or PayPal. You can choose pick up (free),

local delivery for a small fee or shipping at Canada Post rates.

There are also a couple of virtual shopping events available

too. On November 21 from 7 8 pm, board members Audrey

Maxwell Polovnikoff and Judy Madelung will be hosting a

FaceBook Live event. The two will give a virtual tour of Christmas

at the Gallery. Viewers can message for details about the

items, or request to buy goods. The items can be purchased

later in person or over the phone. For a small fee, purchases

can be delivered locally or shipped to places farther away.

The Kootenay Gallery is located at 120 Heritage Way, across

the highway from the airport, between the Doukhobor Discovery

Centre and the West Kootenay BC SPCA office. From

November 13, the gallery is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10 am

5 pm. In December, the gallery is open seven days a week

from 10 am to 5 pm, until December 23. Christmas Eve hours

are 10 am 2 pm.

This year has been difficult for many people. The Kootenay

Gallery encourages everyone to shop locally when and where

you can, whether it is from the gallery, directly from artists or

from other local businesses. The gallery also wishes everyone

a healthy and happy holiday.
