Letter to the Editor

So very proud

Dear editor:

As the holiday season draws to a close, I want to take a moment to thank the Choraliers for making my Christmas so special.

What a great group of people! I am extremely proud of each and every member!

Such a privilege

Dear editor:

A big thank you to Rainycrest for allowing me the opportunity to work with the residents and have a performing choir at Christmas.

It originated because one of the residents, Joe Gervais, approached me one day and asked if I would start a choir there.

Upsetting decision

Dear Editor:

Initially I must apologize for not responding to the change of name at the Sister Kennedy Centre in the Dec. 20th edition of the Fort Frances Times.

I must thank both Nora Paulenko and Margaret Rousseau for providing the impetus to get me to put pen to paper.

Huge success

Dear editor,

The 2017 “Coats4Kids” campaign is now over and has been branded as a huge success.

With the help of more than 20 local partners, the Knights of Columbus have secured eight dozen brand new winter coats for at-risk youths in our community.

This will bring some relief to struggling families in our community this Advent.

Very disappointed

To the editor:

We are very disappointed that town council decided to change the Sister Kennedy Centre's name.

Margaret and I were not seniors yet when Sister Kennedy and a dedicated group realized that there was very little for seniors in our community, notably a place to meet and socialize.

My apologies

Dear editor:

I have a correction to the article I submitted to your paper regarding events happening at Rainycrest.

Marcia Zeleny leads the group, “Singing With Friends.”

Marcia (King) Zeleny and I have been friends for 72 years. We were friends when she was Marcia Mihichuk, but she has been Marcia Zeleny for more than 20 years!

Action needed

Dear Mike:

This is a copy of a letter I sent to town council last week, which has been referred to a committee meeting possibly next Wednesday (Dec. 6) at 8:30 a.m.

If others have a similar complaint, call the town hall at 274-5323 and they can give you the phone number of Public Works to talk to Milt Strachan and/or Travis Rob.

Dear Mayor and Council:

Opposed process

To the editor:

While I am not one to take part in premature electoral posturing at a local level, Mr. Douglas Judson, the PC nomination hopeful from Fort Frances, shared a number of inaccurate and/or incomplete details in his letter to the editor last week.

'Lest we forget'

Dear editor:

On this day (Nov. 11, 2017), I read with sadness the fact that only 14 percent feel that Remembrance Day is “somewhat” important and eight percent feel it is not very important.

They don't seem to realize that if not for the brave men and women who fought and gave their lives for our freedom, they wouldn't have much choice in what they felt or believed in.

Phoning it in

Dear editor:

Sarah Campbell has the honour of representing the people of Kenora-Rainy River in the Ontario legislature.

She is paid $116,500 per year, plus a housing allowance, to do so. And yet, it is increasingly apparent she cannot be bothered to show up for work.
