Meeting of the ‘mines’

Louis Cousineau checked out core samples and information regarding district mining exploration yesterday morning at the Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau building. Dozens of people involved with, or just interested in, mining came out to a seminar held there.

‘Bridging the gap’

Jannelle Ball, seven, her sister Jasmine, 11, and Ashley Dupuis, nine, were proud to show off the banner yesterday that they helped colour for Community Living Fort Frances and District. The image was drawn by local artist Cher Pruys and coloured in by district residents during the BIA’s “Mall Day” here on June 29. Funding for the project came from local donations and Canadian Heritage.
