Deadline extended for talent search

District musicians shouldn't miss this chance for their big break.

The Rainy River Future Development Corp. is hunting for local talent to perform at a monthly concert series at the new Rainy Lake Square here on Thursday nights from May through September, and the deadline for artists to take part has been extended from March 26 to March 30.

Town gains 'age-friendly' recognition

Fort Frances has been designated an “Age-Friendly Community” but there's still plenty of work to be done.

The town was chosen to receive a 2018 Ontario Age-Friendly Community Recognition Award next week in Toronto.

“We've been working toward this [since] September or October of 2016,” local Age-Friendly Community Committee co-ordinator Ian Simpson told the Times.

Fashion models sought

Models are wanted for a vintage fashion show and fundraiser for the Fort Frances Women's Centre next month.

The fundraiser is set to take place on Friday, April 13 at La Place Rendez-Vous, starting with cocktails at 6 p.m.

But you can't have a fashion show without women to wear the clothes, and organizer Melinda Wickstrom of “Melinda's Unique Boutique” wants to hear from you.
