Firefly seeking board members

Firefly, a children's health and family wellness organization, currently is looking for more board members in the Fort Frances area.

Those passionate about children and their well-being, who feel they would be an asset to Firefly's board of directors, are being asked to apply.

“Our board members have a strong interest in children services,” said Firefly CEO Karen Ingebrigtson.

'Walk for Water'

FFHS teacher Sarah Arpin, who helped organize the inaugural “Walk for Water" event last Thursday, walked around the track at Fort High with her son Austin, and daughter, Peyton. Those who walked the track had a chance to wear weighted backpacks that simulated what those in Third World countries endure every day to get clean water.

Cattle sale

Residents from across the district gathered at the Stratton sales barn on Saturday for the first cattle sale of the year. Some 1,535 cattle were sold for a total of almost $1.85 million. The annual spring sale was well-attended and brought a significant payday to many of the district's cattle farmers.

'Not dead yet'

The curtain rises at 7:30 p.m. each night. Tickets, which cost $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors, are available at Northwood Gallery & Gifts and at the door.
