Coldest Night of
the Year Walkathon
Castlegar Community Services has
been hosting an event for the past three
years in solidarity with hundreds of cities
across Canada, all with the aim of
raising money for local charities that
help people in need. The walkathon is
Canada’s national walkathon for homelessness.
Funds raised in Castlegar help
support the Homelessness Partnering
Strategy which provides services to people
in need of housing, and to the Youth
Action Network, which providese preventative,
social and community based
leadership supports and opportunities to
youth in our community who both use
the program and have, year after year,
volunteered to help plan and execute this
event. Hundreds of people in our community
have shown their support for
this event, for the people it helps and for
the programs at Castlegar Community
The event in Castlegar raises funds to support, the Homelessness Partnering
Strategy and Youth Action Network Programs, of the Castlegar
and District Community Services non-profit agency. The event brings
together hundreds of people in the community annually, including
various groups of youth and students who have helped lead and execute
this event year after year.
Anyone can help in many ways:
1. Walk 2 or 5 km, raise pledges for yourself or team comprised
of your work place or family bubble
2. Donate online or contact the organizers to donate in kind
contributions such as food for the walkers
3. Sponsor our event
Nelson CARES Society hosts a Virtual Coldest Night of the Year event
to support their ‘Ready for Home’ program that operates within Ward
Street Place and supports the residents there to access government, healthcare,
prescriptions and groceries anything they might need to stay housed.

Hosted by Castlegar & District Community Services
Hosted by Nelson CARES Society
Services, by pledging to walk, donate,
sponsor the event as a business, offering
in-kind donations or volunteering to
help on and before event day.
This year we are reaching out to the
community again for support but it
will be different. Due to the Covid 19
pandemic the event will be virtual. This
means that we are doing our part to keep
our community safe. Funds can be raised
entirely online and the event will not
take place in-person as it has in the past.
But we can still walk and we can still
raise funds to help those members of our
community that need support the most,
especially in times like this.
What does a virtual event look like?
• In this case, Castlegar’s Coldest
Night of the Year can still take place,
walkers can sign up online @ cnoy.org,
and raise funds virtually.
• We will encourage walkers to walk
on the day of the event (February 20)
in small teams of 6 or less anywhere in
SERVICES It’s cold out
there. The Coldest Night
of the Year is a covid-safe,
family-friendly walk to raise
money for charities serving
people experiencing homelessness,
hurt, and hunger.
Walk with us (virtually) on
February 20, 2021 – there’s
a place for everyone!
AND IN NELSON
BY NELSON CARES
SOCIETY, and sponsored
by Valhalla Pure Nelson,
Nelson Home Building
Centre, OM Foods, and
the Nelson & District Credit
All moneys raised by
each HOST will remain
in that community.
Thank you for caring.
Castlegar and to wear their toques, but
walkers must raise $150.00 before event
day to get a toque.
• Toques can be picked up and walkers
can check in prior to the event at the Flamingo
Motel parking lot 1660 Columbia
Avenue between 4 and 6 pm on February,
14, 16 and 18.
• This year, if walkers are unable to do
their walks on event day, have mobility
issues or are not comfortable walking in
a group during Covid, they may choose
to walk any day in the month of February
or raise funds online without walking.
• Funds can be collected until the end
of March and businesses can support
by donating larger sums as sponsors in
exchange for public recognition of their
sponsorship on the Coldest Night of the
Year website (cnoy.org) which can be
accessed both nationally and locally, as
well as in our local media releases post

ARCTIC OUTFLOW Claire Dibble
The culmination of an artist’s residency aboard a ship sailing in the Arctic
waters of Svalbard, “Arctic Outflow” reflects on the ways that humans are
embedded in even the most remote landscapes on Earth.
Using photo transfer images, bits of marine rubbish collected on shorelines,
and found rope Claire Dibble’s work expresses a commentary on consumerism,
acceptance, and seeking beauty in our current situation.

Coldest Night of the Year Castlegar
cont’d from pg 2
As with prior events, all donations over $20 are tax deductible and
receipts are mailed out after the online registration is complete.
The Covid pandemic has brought about a lot of change.
This year we will be missing the in-person event, but there is
an opportunity to use the change to do some good for some
of the people in our community who need it the most. Those
who are out in the cold, those with nowhere to go, hungry and
hurting, and our youth. The young leaders of tomorrow’s Castlegar,
those who may have experienced homelessness, may be
experiencing loneliness, a social disconnect, those who may be
seeking ways to be a part of their community and give back to
those who need it the most.
Please consider taking a step to do something great this
month. Give back, take part, take a step and sign up today.
Tell your friends, ask your co-workers, this is a feel good event
once you’ve taken part you will want to do it again, because you
will know you’ve made a difference.

alumnus shoots for
A graduate of Selkirk College, 22-year-old Ben
Marken studied in the Millwright/Machinist
Program and the Digital Arts & New Media
When NASA put out an online challenge
to help find solutions for unloading
supplies on the Moon, Selkirk
College alumnus Ben Marken answered
the worldwide call with a design that
turned heads and placed him an impressive
fifth overall in the competition.
The National Aeronautics & Space
Administration (NASA) is currently
pushing forward with its Artemis program
that will land the first woman and
next man on the Moon by 2024. As part
of its overall scheme to send astronauts
to Mars, the US-based space agency
appealed to the online community to
come up with answer for unloading supplies
on the surface so sustainable exploration
of the Moon can proceed.
The Advanced Lightweight Lunar
Gantry for Operations (ALLGO) Challenge
sought creative solutions using
computer-aided design models for a
mobile support structure based on a
framework of inflatable components.
With a detailed list of specifications provided
by judges and no time to spare,
Marken set to work on his design that
resulted in the ALLGO Tubecrane.
“It’s like taking three of those inflatable
tube men you see outside of car dealerships
and gluing the bottom of each one to
a golf cart,” Marken says when asked to put
his submission into simple terms. “Strap a
crane on top, send it 380,000 kilometres
into space and hope everything works. The
short answer is that it’s just an expandable
gantry crane for unloading cargo.”
Out of 132 total accepted entries that
appealed to a community engineers,
designers, manufacturers and students,
Marken’s concept came in fifth overall.
He was the only Canadian entry to reach
the final contest.
“The three-tube bladder was a unique
feature,” Marken says. “It held strong in
all the FEA software I used, nice and
rigid. The judges gave it a test themselves
and liked the concept.”
A graduate of Nelson’s LV Rogers Secondary
in 2016, Marken entered Selkirk
College’s Digital Arts & New Media Program
straight out of high school. With
a passion for learning and a superb talent
for problem solving, he further built
on his formal education in the college’s
Millwright/Machinist Program on the
Silver King Campus.
In coming up with his design for the
ALLGO Challenge, Marken did research
on both NASA’s Apollo 15 Mission and
the former Soviet Union’s Lunokhod Program,
two early-1970s Moon projects that
focused on lunar roving vehicles. He also
tapped his post-secondary education at
Selkirk College to help him with the entry.
“The judges made some pretty unique
requests for the concept they were looking
for and I didn’t have much formal training
in that area, the closest I had to help
me is machinist and engineering graphic
communications classes,” says Marken.
“The swing-drive idea was inspired by a
modern excavator and the three-boom
gantry off of a delta style printer.”
With an approach to education and
future career that places focus on building
a diversity of skills while pushing
towards what interests him, Marken
is modest about his latest accomplishment.
His fifth-place finish comes with
praise from the space agency, but it’s
unclear whether his ambitions include
a future helping NASA more formally
solve problems of space exploration.
“Only if they have free coffee in the
break room,” he smiles.

do this is by registering and fundraising

people in their lives who have been
affected by dementia. Then we will join
together virtually on Sunday, May 30, to
celebrate the difference we’ve made. To

committed to making life better for
Canadians affected by dementia. Local
volunteers play an invaluable role. By
sharing our stories and publishing our
letters, local media helps foster a better
understanding of dementia’s impact on
local families. Together, we are working

October 13, 1938 - January 20, 2021
of 80. One day he had difficulty putting
a set of stairs together and he knew
it was time to put down the hammer
and hang up the tool belt. He loved
working and enjoyed his many jobs and
the interaction with his many, many
customers – some of whom became
very good friends.
He married the love of his life, Fran
Roy, in April of 1958. They resided in St.
Boniface, St. Vital and Gunton, Manitoba
and in 1987 they moved to Alberta
and lived in Egremont, Acme and then
on to Bashaw. In Bashaw Doe and Fran
owned and operated a motel for five
years. Then from Bashaw they moved
to Glade, British Columbia where Doe
absolutely thrived, living right next to
the Kootenay river, and he loved the
waterfalls in the bush right in his back
yard so to speak. In the fall of 2019
his ill health brought him back to his
Manitoba beginnings where he lived in
Lac Du Bonnet until the present time.
Doe was proud of his Metis heritage
and those roots really shone through
with his love of nature and the wilderness.
He hunted, fished, trapped, and
loved berry picking. His other loves
were his family and friends, dogs, his
favourite bird the goose and favourite
animal the moose, motorcycling (in his
younger years), old time country and
fiddling music (his favourite fiddler being
Cliff Maytwayashing) dancing and
jigging, he loved to party, gardening (for
the cucumbers and beans), hockey (his
We are now in midwinter fishing conditions.
The water is cold, and the fish
are lethargic. But, they still have to eat!!
In January, on most of our trips, we
noticed the rainbow fishing drop off.
However, we are still hooking a few each
day. Although, the bull trout fishing has
been pretty consistent, which has made

Chinese food and his beer. There
was nothing he enjoyed more
than cutting wood for his wood
stove and being on his riding lawn
mower cutting grass. He was such
a friendly guy who took up a conversation
with anyone, anywhere
and walked away having made a
new friend. He especially liked his
coffee clutches where he could
shoot the breeze with the guys. He
played the lotto tickets and always
had one either in his pocket or in
his truck. Doe had quite a refined
palate; he ate with his eyes and
his comment without even tasting
was always Nope, don’t like that.
Doe had a stubborn streak and
oh man he had his opinions. If
someone or something ruffled his
feathers it was a constant source
of angst for him and all those who
heard about it over and over again. He
certainly was one of a kind. Doe said he
wanted to return in his next life as a

METIS FUNERAL PRAYER
“Do not look at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I am a thousand winds
that blow. I am the diamond glints on
the snow. I am the sunlight on ripened
grain. I am the gentle spring rain. I am
not there, I did not die. When you
awaken in the morning hush, I am the
swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in
circled flight. I am the soft stars that
shine over your head at night. Do not
stand at my grave and cry. I am not
there, I did not die.”
May we all find the power in this prayer
and look to the future for reunion and a
had a couple of young bucks on board
who were keen to fish. They managed to
hook a couple rainbows each and about
8 bull trout. The fun part was watching
the participation of both of them during
each battle. The boys took turns reeling
in fish and also took turns netting each
other’s fish. Teamwork made this day
successful. The biggest fish of the day
was a bull trout just under 9 lbs, with a
bunch of 3 – 5 pounders rounding out
It’s always a blast having the young
guns on the boat.
While January and February might
not provide the quantity of fish we are
always hoping for, it usually provides
us with some quality fish. So, it’s always
worth a trip.
As per our previous reports, the
Arrows are still a bit hit and miss. Upper
Arrow is still producing both rainbows
and bull trout up to 15 lbs. Lower Arrow
has been pretty quiet. Although, we did
hear a few decent reports from one or
two different boats. If you put in your
time and practise some patience, the
end result can be rewarding.
Still getting a few fish on the river.
