College memorabilia

Various Confederation College memorabilia was on display during the launch event for the college’s 50th-anniversary celebrations held last Wednesday at the local campus here. Other items open to guests were the sign-in book and a timeline of the college’s history.

Card game

Trevor Mader, right, faced off against Ryan Flamand in a game of “Magic the Gathering” between rounds at the pre-release event Saturday at the Fort Frances Public Library Tecnology Centre. It was a chance for players to try out cards from the newest “Magic the Gathering” set, as well as win some prizes.

Signing in

Vince Gouin wrote a message in the sign-in book during Confederation College’s 50th anniversary launch party that took place yesterday at its Rainy River District campus here. Gouin, a shop teacher at Fort Frances High School, also teaches a woodworking course at the college during the summer months.

Winter ritual

Northwoods Gallery & Gifts owner Doug Cuthbertson was out shovelling snow earlier today—a common sight around Borderland this winter as yet more of the white stuff fell. While anywhere from 7.5-15 cm (three-six inches) accumulated throughout the day, the good news is the snow will taper off by tonight, with no more forecast in the near future.

Back at it

Pupils in Mrs. Booth’s Grade 3 class at Robert Moore School were hard at work this morning. Today marked the first day back at school for students across the district following their two-week break for the Christmas holidays.
