Youth centre being mulled

An idea of having a youth centre in Fort Frances has been brought forward and a small group is looking into the possibility.

June Caul, who sits on town council, said she and John Beaton recently sat down with a high school student who thought a youth centre is something the town needs.

“He told us about his hopes and dreams for something like this,” Coun. Caul noted.
