Christmas cutie

Six-month-old Claire Bisson was more interested in Santa Claus than the book he was reading to her as she posed for photos with the jolly old elf upstairs in the arena during “Holly Daze” festivities Saturday in Emo. Children also were able to make some crafts and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate while their parents shopped at local vendors.

Toy donation

Kay Redford handed over a donation of some toy cars to Andy C of 93.1 The Border and “Frosty the Snowman” during the station’s “Burst the Bus” initiative Saturday on Scott Street. All proceeds of unwrapped toys and non-perishable food items are going to the local Salvation Army.

Christmas cantata

Members of the Fort Frances Choraliers, led by Diane Maxey, raised their voices in song yesterday afternoon as they presented their annual Christmas cantata, this year entitled “Come Let Us Adore,” along with a few additional numbers, to wow the packed house at the Townshend Theatre. An encore performance will be held this Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Zion Lutheran Church in International Falls.
