Meet the amazing francophones

and francophiles

The West Kootenay’s Francophone Association (AFKO)

presents Franc Ouest, a new podcast featuring intimate

and captivating stories from some of the region’s most

extraordinary francophones and francophiles. Even

though the official launch will take place on June 24, the

first four episodes are available now on Apple Podcast &

Spotify! Listen to the podcast now to take a journey into

the heart of the West Kootenay and be charmed by the

inspiring people who live there.

Season 1: Francophonie Sauvage (Wild Francophonie)

The first season, Francophonie Sauvage, promises compelling,

original and unfiltered content. The guests of

the podcast host Patrick Lac speak about their unique

experiences and the reasons why they are inspirational

figures for many people. Each episode is, for the host, “a

profound encounter with people who have lived a lot and

have a lot to teach us”. Throughout the first season, meet

inspiring people who will captivate you, like Mia Noblet,

world slackline champion; Alex Pilon, Nelson’s LGBTQ+

ambassador and drag queen, Stéphanie Gauvin, renowned

painter from Rossland; Sonia Ratté, and chef-entrepreneur

of the popular La Baguette bakery in Revelstoke.

Franc Ouest is not just about amazing French people

and francophiles! Several controversial but important topics

are discussed throughout the podcast episodes: gender

diversity, Indigenous and racialized peoples, extreme

sports, youth entrepreneurship and so many more!

Erika

announcements

Moving On

Pennywise would like to thank

Erika Bird for the 20 years she

contributed to the success of Pennywise

and its publications.

She has held our various magazines to a

literary standard we hope to maintain.

She has created interesting and accurate

content for our visitor magazines,

researched, compiled, extrapolated, documented, organized,

managed distribution and liaised with our clients.

She has laughed with, and at us. Her sense of humour and

wit added to the general joy of our office.

Erika has filled a niche quality control that has made us all

proud of the products we deliver.

Her sons, the new owners of Eric’s Meat Market in Kaslo,

will now be beneficiaries of this talented woman, who is

moving on to help as their ‘Right Hand Mom’.

Her hard work, creativity and ideas will be of great value to

her pups; we know, as they were of great value to us.

We wish you all the best, Erika!

Patrick Lak, AFKO

Stepping In

Pennywise would like to announce

Tonya Lefebvre

as the successful applicant for the position

that Erika is leaving.

Tonya brings to our team years of experience

in design, and a calmness (she appears to

share that trait with Erika) as well as great

knowledge of the written word.

She is well known locally for her past

publication of The Kaslo Crow.

She is an artist with diverse interests

including music, painting and

design all of which we feel will

give great value to our team

as we transition around Erika’s

departure.

Welcome Tonya. We are happy

to have you on our team!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CANADA!

All in the Family was the top TV series, Captain & Tennille led

the charts for weeks with Love will keep us together.

A 22lb bag of Robin Hood Flour on sale was $2.98,

the movie Jaws was released June 20 the same day the

first edition of Pennywise hit the stands.

For 47 years we have been bringing buyers and sellers together in

our West Kootenay communities. Millions and millions of dollars

have moved through the Pennywise. We have published hundreds

of visitor magazines and distributed millions of copies all over our

BC, Alberta and the neighbouring US states, helping the West Kootenay

and Kaslo grow into the vacation destination it has become.

From the compugraphic machine in 1975 to our current M1 Mac

mini, we have seen and adjusted to fundamental technological

changes in the tools we use and the procedures we follow

computers, the internet, cell phones. With our social media

apps, communities have been able to expand way beyond their

natural borders.

It is an interesting time…

As we field calls and emails from people and outlets looking for one

or more of the various ‘paper’ publications we offer, it is rewarding

to see the Pennywise and our other print products cleared off the

stands regularly. The piles of visitor magazines, vacation maps, farm &

food directories, seniors magazines, that are stored in my basement

dwindle at an alarming rate (we have already printed the Spring

2022 Go & Do twice). I wonder who are these thousands of people

who are snapping up our paper products? We can hardly keep up on

the deliveries, and it makes us happy.

We look back and remind each other of how publishing was an

intensely manual process… we look forward, wondering what the

next technology we learn will do for us. Will it make production

more efficient? Will it connect us better with our readers?

The best of the old, like answering phones and mailing the Pennywise

directly to you, we have kept. We have made some adjustments

during the tough times to reduce costs, but ultimately they have

helped make us stonger. We eagerly anticipate the new opportunities

that will arise to serve you all, and wonder where the paper/

digital trail will take us in the next 30 years.

Happy Birthday

to us… and thank YOU for reading us and shopping here.

Play it safe around our reservoirs

Play it safe when boating or swimming this summer. Our reservoirs can be enjoyable recreation

destinations, provided certain common sense safety precautions are observed.

❤❤

Demi is a lovely girl who was brought in as an owner surrender. She

came from a home with another cat but we are finding that she would

prefer to be the only queen of the castle. She enjoys pets and rubbing

up on your leg. She often is found on the cat tower in the outdoor

room so would likely enjoy a catio in her new home.

Because the water in our reservoirs is utilized for flood control and the production of electricity, reservoir

water levels can rise or fall daily. Reservoir users should be aware that changing water levels can conceal

submerged hazards, particularly in shallow water near the shoreline. It is important that visitors be

aware of these potential dangers and take precautions to stay safe. Canadian Hydrographic Charts are an

excellent reference for boaters and are available at www.charts.gc.ca.

Boating, fishing and swimming above or below a dam or generating station can be very dangerous.

For your own safety and the safety of those with you, obey all warning signs and stay out of restricted

areas.

Boaters must comply with all Canadian Coast Guard regulations and practice safe boating at all times.

Have fun but be careful!

Summer E-bike raffle

Nelson CARES Society is hosting a summer fundraising raffle for a Pedego

Interceptor electric bike. All proceeds of the raffle go to support the Kootenay Seniors

Transportation Program.

Kootenay Seniors, a Program of Nelson CARES Society, works to support seniors to

remain in their homes for as long as possible, living with dignity and joy and being an

integral part of their community. Kootenay Seniors has two essential programs: Transportation

Program and Home Support.

The Kootenay Seniors Transportation Program has worked diligently to meet the

ever-growing need for safe, affordable, and reliable transportation for seniors in Nelson

and the surrounding communities. The funds gained by the Pedego e-bike raffle will support

the transportation program’s growth, and boost its expansion.

Mike Cylde from Pedego Canada shares “As a part of this amazing vibrant community,

I am very happy to be able to support Nelson CARES in their work to help vulnerable

members of our city. What awesome work they do, helping us move towards more

inclusive spaces and recognizing housing is essential for everyone. Thank you, Nelson

CARES!”

Tickets are only $10 each and are available on the website at www.nelsoncares.ca or

in-person at Hall Street Place 205 Hall Street and at the Kootenay Seniors new admin

office at 805 Nelson Ave. when the office opens later in June. Tickets are also available at

Buddy’s Place on Baker Street. With a maximum of 2000 tickets sold the chances of riding

away in style are pretty high.

The bright blue Pedego Interceptor has a 52 Volt battery and 10.5Ah motor uses the

same advanced lithium-ion cells as an electric car. An 8-speed drivetrain provides smooth

shifting and easy pedalling with 5 levels of pedal assist. Those pesky

Nelson hills will bother you no more. The draw will take place at

the Kootenay Seniors office at 805 Hall Street and on their Facebook

page on Oct 1st at 4:00 PM. The winner will be contacted by

phone and/or email.

Nelson CARES and Kootenay Seniors would like to thank everyone

who purchases a ticket and especially Mike Clyde for his support

of this raffle.

How Monstering happens

A new exhibition at the Kootenay Gallery, Vestigial Trail,

features the drawings and written work of Jim Holyoak. It

opens June 23 and runs till August 20, 2022.

All his life, Jim Holyoak has drawn and contemplated

the monstrous, and in recent years he has voraciously

read books on Monster Theory, the scholarly study of

monsters. Whether a ‘monster’ is perceived as wonderful

or terrible, wrathful or protective, human or nonhuman,

is a distinction made in the eye of the beholder. Monsters

are speculative beings that simultaneously don’t, did or

might exist. They are the unknown, the misunderstood and

the profoundly different. There are monstrous situations,

behaviours and attitudes, monstrous feelings, places and

times. Thinking about monsters is an exercise in alterity

the study of otherness and our resultant capacities for

empathy, cruelty and indifference making strange and

making kin. ‘Othering’ that which is different from oneself

is a process that might otherwise be called ‘Monstering.’

The Kootenay Gallery of Art is located at 120 Heritage

Way across from the Castlegar Regional Airport, just past

the Doukhobor Discovery Centre.

Would your acreage benefit from soil amendment?

Mercer Celgar is looking for landowners with 2 or more acres within 55 km

that would benefit from using their Celgrow soil amendment. Pastures and

hay fields are good options.

Mercer Celgar will cover the costs of a Qualified Professional performing

soil sampling, obtaining government authorization and delivery costs of Celgrow

soil amendment based on access with a large truck/pup combination.

Acreage should be able to accommodate at least 6 truck/pup loads. The two

major components of Celgrow are individual wood fibres lost from the pulping

process and surplus bacteria from the wastewater biological treatment

facility. Wood fibres enhance soil moisture retention and bacteria are a good

source of soil nutrients. The landowner is responsible for spreading and incorporating

Celgrow into their soil.

Freshet season to last until late July

With a significant amount of mountain snow pack still remaining,

according to the BC Ministry of Forests River Forecast Centre, residents

of the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) can expect

freshet season to be extended to late July. The snow pack is snow on the

ground in mountainous areas that persists until the arrival of warmer

weather. Across the province the average snow pack is well above normal.

Typically by this time of year, three quarters of the accumulated

snow pack has melted; however, due to the abnormally cooler temperatures

throughout April and May it has been delayed. Currently,

the average snow pack in BC is 198% of normal, while in the West

Kootenay region, which includes the entire RDCK, snow pack is at

215% of normal. This number indicates a continued enhanced risk

from snowmelt related flooding, especially in combination with heavy

rain.

The RDCK remains under a High Streamflow Advisory. Earlier this

week the BC River Forecast Centre downgraded the advisory from a

Flood Watch Advisory. Most rivers, streams and creeks have risen to

normal or above normal levels and are extremely vulnerable to heavy

rainfall events. Residents are reminded to exercise extreme caution

around rivers and creeks.

Kootenay Lake is currently at 1751.45 ft. (533.84 metres) at Queen’s

Bay. FortisBC has advised all residents that the lake level still has the

potential to exceed 1752 feet. Go to www.fortisbc.com/lakelevel to

access the hourly updated Kootenay Lake level.

Environment Canada forecasts unsettled weather conditions

throughout the RDCK over the next week with no sign of an extended

heat event. However, a significant change in the forecast or thunderstorms

along with heavy rainfall could result in localized floods. There

are currently no Evacuation Alerts or Orders in the RDCK. On Tuesday,

June 14 the RDCK removed the Evacuation Alert for the community

of Six Mile near Nelson BC, as the risk of damage to the Duhamel

Creek Orphan Dike structure has diminished.

Indigenous Internship Program

Today, June 21st, in celebration of the National Indigenous

Peoples’ Day, the Community Housing Transformation Centre is

happy to introduce its Indigenous Internship Program.

Across Canada, the Indigenous community housing sector faces

the daily challenge of finding Indigenous individuals with training

to lead their organizations. This lack of human resource capacity

with appropriate cultural and technical knowledge is a significant

obstacle to growing and maintaining Indigenous community

housing. The Centre’s internship program is aimed directly at alleviating

this situation. It will increase access to financial resources

and support services including those of the Centre.

Interns wanted -The Centre is looking for Indigenous applicants

who are 30 years of age or less, recently graduated and interested

in a career in community housing or already working in the

sector and would like to further develop their skills.

At the end of the internship, interns will bring new skills, education,

and perspective back to their host organization or be

equipped to seek out leadership opportunities in the sector. The

Centre is also committed to opening at least one position within

its own operations at the end of the first year of the program.

Coach wanted - Coaching and support are critical components

of the project. A full-time Indigenous coach with expertise in

community-based housing will be responsible for implementing

the program at the Centre. The coach will be available to provide

culturally appropriate guidance to interns and will serve as a reference

to help interns establish and achieve their individual professional

development goals throughout the internship.

To learn more about these opportunities, contact us at info@

centre.support.

Announcement

Jack (Jackie) Frank Fletcher,

August 24, 1936 April 4,

2020. Close friends and acquaintances

of the Fletcher

family are respectfully invited

to attend a come & go

memorial service for Jack

to be held on July 2, 2022,

between 1 and 3 pm at the

J. B. Fletcher General Store,

Ainsworth Hot Springs.

Born in Kaslo, BC, and raised in Ainsworth, he was

trademarked as the “baby” of the family by his 4 protective

older sisters. Though honoured as the baby,

that in no manner granted him any special treatment

when it came to ensuring all of the siblings did their

fair share of helping out at the family-owned and

operated store.

It was a life-long debate between the five Fletcher

siblings on who spent more time doing such things

as stocking shelves or hauling inventory up from

the Ainsworth wharf. As Jack was the last remaining

Fletcher, it is only fitting to host his memorial at the

family beloved store and for it to act as the family and

community anchor one final time.

Canada Day in Nelson

The Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce is hosting a

free family fun day, July 1st, in celebration of Canada Day! This

year also commemorates the City of Nelson’s 125th birthday.

Canada Day kicks off on Baker Street with annual Lions Club

Pancake Breakfast that runs from 8 to 11 am. Activities continue

throughout the day at Rotary Lakeside Park Opening Ceremonies

start at 10:30 am with local dignitaries celebrating our diversity

and culture. Entertainment on stage gets underway at around

10:45 am following the opening ceremonies and runs through

9:45 pm. One of the highlights each year is the giant 4 by 8-foot

Canada Day birthday cake served up at 11 am by Chamber directors

and local dignitaries.

In fact, you can indulge throughout the day at the Rose Garden

Café or enjoy the Rotary Club’s annual BBQ from 11 am to 3 pm

at the Rotary shelter.There will be lots of community groups and

organizations at this year’s event, all of them offering up family

oriented kids’ activities, from sandcastles to bouncy castles, kids’

fishpond, face painting, tattoos and more.

The firework finale at around 10 pm will end off this fun

celebration!
