Pair take on care of windswept robin

It’s not every day a wild animal will stop by for dinner, but for the past month Cindy Lauzon and Cory Lindal of Fort Frances have had a near constant companion in a fledgling robin they’ve nicknamed Tweeter.

Their adventure in raising a wild bird began in June, when a strong storm caused some damage to a tree in their backyard and a nest a mother robin had built there.

The Glowasky’s were one of six homes that participants could visit to take in the hard and creative work that gardening entails.

Canada Day BBQ

Volunteers at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Fort Frances prepared a feast-worthy amount of take-out BBQ meals on Canada Day. The meals were provided free of charge to anyone who happened to pass by the church and other bags were sent out for delivery to help everyone celebrate the nation’s birthday.
