OPP booth

A group of OPP officers, along with their furry friend, had a booth setup at the Fort Frances Chamber of Commerce's Business and Community Expo on Saturday to interact with, and give out information to, the community.

Audience interaction

Choir director Diane Maxey addressed the audience as the Fort Frances Choraliers looked on before a concert at Rainycrest's Hallett Hall on Saturday afternoon. This year's Easter cantata, “Hope Alive in Me,” was also performed Sunday afternoon at the Zion Lutheran Church in International Falls. They have one more performance slated for this Sunday (May 5) at 3 p.m.

Styling advice

Conservative candidate

Conservative Party candidate for Thunder Bay-Rainy River Linda Rydholm, left, spoke to constituents at the Chamber's Business Expo on Saturday afternoon. Those who came by the booth had a chance to speak with the candidate one on one and learn about her campaign.

Answering question

This group of students cheered as they got the correct answer at the “Oko-aabajitooyang Anishinaabemowin" station—a Jeopardy-style language competition—during the 20th-annual "Quest for Knowledge” (Gagwegakendamaawiziwin) held last Wednesday at Rainy River First Nations.

Taking quiz

Brothers Corbin and Owen Riches took a quiz at the Northern Development Career Services (NCDS) booth during the Chamber's expo on Saturday afternoon. They were tested on their knowledge of NCDS; Owen was the first person to score 100 percent on the quiz.

Arpin, Jackson

Rainy River Owl standout Jackson Arpin got ready to make a serve during one of his matches earlier this season. Arpin has been dominant in senior boys' singles play this season and qualified for his third trip to OFSAA with a perfect 5-0 showing at the NWOSSAA badminton championships held last Wednesday in Thunder Bay.

Eyes on the ball

Ashlyn Beck, left, of the Muskies, and Paige Anderson of the Rainy River Owls had their sights set on the airborne ball while Tala Quran (#5) looked on during Fort High's 2-0 win in exhibition action last Thursday afternoon here. The black-and-gold will next see action with some more exhibition games this weekend in Thunder Bay.
