Festival of lights

Things are looking bright for the west end, thanks to the WRRD Lions Club Festival of Lights competition. More lights up on 2nd St and River Ave E in Rainy River. Break out those Christmas lights and get your entry in to Kreger Auto in Rainy River for a chance to win $1000!

Coming down

Demolition is underway at the Fort Frances mill site as crews with Canadian National Demolition Service (CND) work on areas of the property that have been issued demolition permits, such as the paper mill building, the LAP building and new wood room. The teardown is expected to take roughly 18 months, weather permitting.

Sweet surprise

This year the proceeds from the Fort Frances Tim Hortons' week-long Smile Cookie campaign were donated to the Rainy River District Community Policing Committee. Pictured from left are Erinne Wreggitt, Mary Lou Beaulieu and Ashlee Hunsperger. A big thank you to everyone who purchased Smile Cookies.

Fort Frances Lakers

The season opener may be getting pushed back to the end of November, but the Fort Frances Lakers are poised and ready. They've been training daily, on and off the ice, with new head coach, Bernie Lynch. They've got great speed, and are improving daily. Because spectators might not be allowed, the team is hoping the community will support them by purchasing 400 Club Draw tickets.

Lest we forget

Fort Frances mayor June Caul, left, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 29 president Ann Watson and poppy campaign chair Noris Piccinato held aloft the Legion flag, which was raised at the Civic Centre last week, in support of Canadian veterans and the annual poppy campaign.

Spooky fun

The Fort Frances Nursery School had fun with pumpkins at their recent Halloween party. The kids enjoyed pumpkin carving, treats, games and even a bouncy castle. We welcome teacher pictures!
