Classic car

“Canadian Coaster” Norm Mulloy posed beside his wife’s 1934 Desoto Airflow at the car show held by the Sorting Gap Marina yesterday afternoon. The “Coaster” explained this is an unusual car because it was a revolutionary design during the 1930s. The Mulloys are from southern Ontario and this is their first time in Fort Frances, which they’ve enjoyed so far despite the pesky mosquitoes.

Matching trailer

Carl Murray of New Brunswick was one of the many “Canadian Coasters" who cruised into Fort Frances yesterday. Once he arrived, he parked his 1958 Austin Cambridge pickup, with its matching boler, to participate in the annual "Scott Street Show 'n Shine" organized by the local International Early Iron Car Club.

Painting rock

Four-year-old Benjamin Parks was among the children of all ages who enjoyed painting rocks and creating mandalas last Thursday afternoon at Point Park as part of the weekly Open Air Art Studio presented by Community Living Fort Frances and District. The next Open Air Studio is scheduled for tomorrow (July 20) from 3-7 p.m. at the Lions' Park, where participants will be making wind socks.

Metropolitan arrival

A student from St. Andrew's College in Winnipeg escorted his eminence, the Metropolitan Yurij, into St. George's Ukrainian Orthodox Church here Sunday morning, where he was greeted by the local parish with gifts of bread, salt, and flowers. He then led a special service commemorating the church's 70th anniversary, followed by a luncheon at La Place Rendez-Vous. See story, more photos on A5.

Coasters welcome

Fred Lavendure, Al Smith, and Gary Arnold of the local International Early Iron Car Club posed with Mayor Roy Avis (second from right) beside the large sign that will welcome the “Canadian Coasters" when they arrive here beginning late tomorrow morning. The car club also thanked Mayor Avis for declaring "Canadian Coasters Week” in Fort Frances.
