Walking for Terry

St. Michael's students walked laps around the school yard Thursday during their walk for Terry Fox. The “Terry Fox School Run” was held at schools across Canada, including here in Rainy River District, during which students exercised and learned all about the Canadian hero.

Boardwalk expansion

Bob Saunders hauled some cedar planks over fellow Rainy River Valley Field Naturalist Club member Mike Hammond, who drilled nails into the boards to keep them in place on Saturday. A handful of club members and volunteers worked on their project of adding just over 300 feet of cedar to the boardwalk at the Cranberry Peatlands Interpretive Trail in Alberton.

Fresh shave

Fort High teacher Joshua Spooner shared a smile as he got his hair cut by Kim Daley this morning at FFHS to raise money for the Terry Fox Foundation. Spooner got the most votes from students to be selected to have his head shaved. Runner-up Owen Johnson later volunteered to have his beard shaved after much coaxing from the crowd of Fort High students and staff.

45-year pin
