Standing trial

Standing trial

Fort Frances Mayor Roy Avis, centre, was brought before “Judge” Steve Latimer by Diana Lynn Larocque and bailiff Cst. Rene Pitrement of the Treaty #3 Police Service on Saturday during the Voyageur Lions Club’s annual “Jail or Bail” fundraiser at Canadian Tire. Mayor Avis ended up being the “top convict,” raising more than $1,200 in bail before being released from jail. The event raised $4,500 for Fort Frances Special Olympics and the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides, with donations continuing to be accepted this week. Call club president Bill Michl (276-1334) for details.
