There is a bustle of excitement this week as Rainy River District hosts the OFSAA 'A'/'AA' boys' hockey championship.
On Monday, I saw several tour buses pulling into Fort Frances to take part.
Best wishes to all the players making up our Muskie team. You have the entire district supporting you for this event.
Congratulations, as well, to all the volunteers who work hard and diligently to bring this event together.
The decorating throughout Fort Frances is amazing. I know of many people who have spent hours preparing for the OFSAA tournament.
Thanks again to the folks who make us all happy to say, “We might be small but we're mighty.”
Sympathy is extended to the family and friends of Cecil Elliott, brother to Denice Becker and Darlene Bruce.
He leaves to mourn many other family members in our rural area.
Our thoughts are with you all at this sad time.

A special event recently was held at St. Mary's Church in Fort Frances as Waylon Spry was baptized.
Waylon is the son of Tyler and Leanne Spry (Beck) and the grandson of Gary and Mildred Beck.
An elderly couple was sitting in church. The wife, wearing an uncomfortable look on her face, turned to her husband and said, “I just passed silent gas. What should I do?”
The husband replied, “Put new batteries in your hearing aid.”
