Music in the Park

Eva Morrisseau, Aurora Hutton, and Joelle Bruyere helped “Music in the Park" attendees paint their rocks for a small donation last Tuesday evening at the Lions Park in Emo. Members of the "Fort Frances Rocks" group were on hand and showed people how to carefully craft coloured rocks.

Rounding barrel

Audience members of the Emo Fair horse show were excited to see the Gymkhana barrel racing event Saturday afternoon. Cheryl Burghardt was one of 21 competitors in the event, racing against the clock, in a cloverleaf pattern, around each of three barrels as her horse, “Squire to Glow,” kicked up the dirt behind them.

Big bounce

Brock Visser had a blast bouncing around on the bungee trampoline at the Emo Fair on Thursday evening. Children enjoyed an array of fun midway rides, games, and activities.

Solo singer

Adrianna McCoy belted out some big notes during her performance at the sixth-annual “Music in the Park" event held last Tuesday at the Lions Park in Emo. The event raised more than $1,000 to help her and 60 other girls from across the district attend the "I Am Awesome (And I Know It)” retreat at Sunny Cove Camp next month.

Vintage racers

A pair of vintage stock cars, carrying the Canadian and American flags, led the WISSOTA Modifieds onto the track at the Emo Speedway on Saturday evening. It was a nice touch considering racers from both sides of the border regularly compete against each other during Borderland Racing Association action at the local track.

Staying ahead

Chase McGuire of CJ Contracting looked to keep control of the ball, and stay ahead of opponent Ethan Carlson-Jourdain of Manitou Forest Products, during his squad's 1-0 win in the second-and-deciding game of the Borderland Soccer League's men's division final last Tuesday night at the St. Francis Sports Field.

Level swing

Dana Ward of the Fort Frances Her-icanes looked to make solid contact with a pitch during her squad's 12-4 win over the Red Gut Babes in the Rainy River District Women's Fastball league final Monday evening at VanJura here.

Set to throw

Red Gut Babes' third baseman Syd White looked to unleash a throw across the diamond to first base to record an out after fielding a soft grounder during her squad's 12-4 loss to the Fort Frances Her-icanes in the Rainy River District Women's Fastball League final Monday evening at VanJura. It was the Babes' second championship loss to the Her-icanes, previously falling to them in 2016.

Trophy hoist

It was all smiles and jubilation for members of the Fort Frances Her-icanes as they gathered around team captain Stacy Patey to hoist the championship trophy after downing the Red Gut Babes 12-4 in the Rainy River District Women's Fastball League final Monday evening at VanJura.
