Orchestra adds choir to repertoire this year

The Borderland Community Orchestra is back with three performances this month, including one at Townshend Theatre here on May 22.

The orchestra has been entertaining the district for almost 20 years.

This year, the group's spring performance—entitled “Fairy Tales and Magical Stories”—will showcase eclectic music, guest performances, and the newly-established Borderland Choir.

Building structure nets fine

A Winnipeg area man has been fined a total of $3,000 for violations under the Public Lands Act while two others were given suspended sentences.

Garth Steek pleaded guilty and was fined $1,500 for erecting a structure without a permit, as well as $1,500 for disobeying a stop work order.

He also was issued a court order to remove the structure from the property.

Calendar winners

Yvonne Treffers (Atikokan) and Joe Bremault (South Junction, Man.) won the $100 up for grabs on April 30 and May 1 in the Rainy River District Mutual Aid Association's weekly cash calendar draw.
