RRCC action

Stevie-Lee Langford of the Rainy River Community College Voyageurs fought for the puck against a University of Minnesota Duluth Bulldogs player during action last weekend at Bronco Arena in International Falls. The Voyageurs swept the two-game set, winning 6-2 on Saturday and then 5-3 on Sunday.

For the birds?

A hungry deer managed to get itself into an awkward position to chow down on some bird seed earlier this month in the Marusyk family’s backyard in Crozier. They were able to capture the deer’s hijinks with a camera as it filled its belly and sent this photo in.

Autumn colours

This colourful autumn scene along the shoreline of Hope Lake was captured over the weekend by Jolene Darrah. After almost 75 mm (three inches) of rain fell on the area last Thursday and Friday, brilliant sunshine brought out the full fall splendour across the district.

Serving it up

Through the fundraising efforts of the Rainycrest auxiliary, serving trays of various sizes were purchased to assist the servers in delivering food to residents. Pictured here are nutrition manager Dwayne Hunking and food servers Sharon Helder and Connie Wood.

Beauty bass

Safeway KidPro champ Damon Nyberg flashed the thumbs-up sign as pro angler Steve Ballan showed off the team’s 4.46-pound lunker—the biggest fish of the day—during Sunday’s tournament. The fish helped the team, which also included Kent Ballan, to an 11.91-pound bag and the trophy.

Buzzing it off

Trevor Maden, a supervior at the post office here, got his head shaved by Dan Biddeson yesterday after losing a challenge to his co-workers. Prior to last month’s “Relay for Life,” Maden made a deal with his staff that if they raised $2,000 for their group (“Team Australia”), they could shave him bald. The group met the challenge by a mere $5.

Family barbecue

Merrick Cheetham received a balloon from one of Smokey the Bear’s helpers at the Fort Frances Day Care’s family barbecue held Tuesday. Everyone enjoyed an evening of food, song, games, face-painting, and more at the Fort Frances Children’s Complex.

Dining out

Some of the residents of Rainycrest travelled by bus to La Place Rendez-Vous on May 19, where they were escorted in and treated to a wonderful meal made possible courtesy of the Rainycrest Auxiliary. This event takes place once per year to the delight of the residents. The weather co-operated and those in attendance enjoyed a special social evening.
