Fresh off the grill

Ben and Alexis Gosman got ready to enjoy some spiral-cut “auger dogs" fresh off the grill Saturday afternoon during "SnOasis 7: Snowflake Heaven" at the Rainy Lake Square. Despite the chilly wind, dozens of families came out for the event, which featured activities both outdoors and inside the Fort Frances Museum.

Museum seeking artwork reflecting climate change

The Fort Frances Museum & Cultural Centre is looking for submissions of original artwork reflecting the theme of climate change.

From April to June, the museum's exhibit will be “Taking Back Our Natural World” and curator Sherry George wants this artwork to a part of it.

George said she's looking for “anything that highlights the impact of climate change on our world.”
