Maggie LeMesurier, centre, taught Sam Jensen, left, and his mom, Karen, how to play the Pokémon collectible card game yesterday during March Break activities at the Fort Frances Public Library Technology Centre. More activities continued there today with “Family Storytime" in the morning and a "fairy lantern" workshop in the afternoon. Then tomorrow will see "Baby Time" at 10:30 a.m., followed by a "Lego Zip-Line Challenge" at 1:30 p.m. (children under eight must be accompanied by an adult). A family movie, "Coco,” will be screened at 2 p.m. on Friday (free popcorn).

It was close once again but still didn't turn out in their favour.

The Fort Frances Lakers saw its losing streak extend to five-straight games with a 3-2 shootout loss to the Thunder Bay North Stars last night at the Fort William Gardens.

The North Stars opened the scoring when they capitalized on their first power play of the night off the stick of Kyle Auger at 11:11 of the first period.

Alternative folk musician Rory Tailon will be returning to Fort Frances next Friday (March 23), alongside Kenora's Brooklyn Doran, for a night of soulful signing at From the Grind Up.

Tailon kicked off his cross-Canada tour a week ago, starting in Kingston, Ont.

Over the next five months, he will be making 18 stops through Ontario, Winnipeg, and New Brunswick, ending in Picton on July 26.

“It's definitely an experience,” Tailon said of his upcoming show.
