'Yay, spring!'

This humorous sign at the corner of Second Street East and Mowat Avenue sums up a lot of people’s feelings in Borderland. And looking at the weekend forecast, it appears that spring finally has truly sprung here.

Clowning around

Four-year-olds Ann Kivimaki and Elizabeth Blight enjoyed the Shrine Circus on Tuesday in support of the Border Shrine Club. Shows were held at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., after which youngsters could take part in face-painting, pony rides, and have photos taken with the performing bears. Proceeds will allow the Khartum Shriners to give transportation funding to children in medical need.

Fish fry deemed success

Hundreds of hungry mouths lined up for a free meal Friday at the 44th-annual Rainy River First Nations’ fish fry.

An assembly line of volunteers battered fish, warmed kernel corn, and sculpted bannock as the people filed in line at 4 p.m.

Over the course of a few hours, more than 600 pounds of walleye and sturgeon were served to the masses.

Tea time

Nicke Baird, left, co-owner of the online business “Smashing Tea,” poured Whitney Williamson, six, and her mom, Kim, a cup of blueberry pie tea Friday night during the Fort Frances Chamber of Commerce’s annual Business and Community Expo at the Memorial Sports Centre. The two-day expo, which also ran Saturday, featured 60 exhibitors and attracted 1,100 visitors.
