Gift for Mom

Jersey Rose, a junior kindergarten student at J.W. Walker School, showed her mom, Laura Chabot, a drawing she had done of her. In conjunction with Education Week (May 7-11), parents were invited to “Lunch with a Learner” so their children could share with them what they had been learning.

Keynote speaker

Brian Sheehan, a director with Lions Club International, gave the keynote speech at the 48th-annual Charter Anniversary of the Fort Frances Lions Club on Tuesday evening at the Adventure Inn.

Gun show draws big crowd

A rainy Saturday afternoon helped drive hundreds of people to drop by the fifth-annual Gun & Hobby Show held at the Fort Frances Curling Club.

Scott Stafford, who organizes the show each year with his wife, said while the show usually attracts about 600 people, this year started out exceptionally strong.

Taking aim

Owen Riches aimed at a deer silhouette with a Nerf bow-and-arrow during the Gun & Hobby Show on Saturday, where children had the chance to win a badge if they got the foam dart through a circle in the centre of the deer. The fifth-annual show saw more than 600 people stop by the Fort Frances Curling Club to view the various guns and crafts up for sale.

Eating pancakes

Cassie Krawchuk, a Grade 2 student at J.W. Walker School, enjoyed pancakes this morning along with her brother, Gunner, who is in junior kindergarten. The breakfast, which was held before classes began, was part of activities in conjunction with Education Week (May 7-11).

A large selection of firearms, hunting gear, arts and crafts, wood carvings, and children’s activities meant there was something to interest everyone.
