Christmas decor

Sue Worthman of Ranier, Mn. took a good look at a snowman birdfeeder and a wood-and-wire tree Saturday at The Christmas Store—just two of the 14 items created by the Riverside Foundation for Health Care’s special events committee for its “Wreaths ’n Things” fundraiser, which ran Thursday through yesterday. The penny auction raised $800 for district health care.

Gospel Christmas

Daylin James, as “The King,” clapped along as he belted out gospel numbers during his Christmas celebration concert last night at St. Mary’s Church here. The show, entitled “How Great Thou Art,” featured back-up vocals by local singers “Fort Harmonies.” Proceeds will go towards the Northern Superior Chapter of the Kidney Foundation of Canada.

Time to play

One-year-old Serena Cousineau took a break from zooming around at the “KIds Being Kids” program at the Sunset Country Métis Community Hall (714 Armit Ave.) this morning. The free program, which runs there from 9-11 a.m. every Monday and Thursday, features toys and games for kids, as well as an opportunity for parents, caregivers, and children to meet one another and interact.

Underpass reopened

The Portage Avenue underpass was reopened to two lanes late yesterday as work on the site has wrapped up for the winter. The public is reminded, however, to continue using only the east sidewalk through the winter since the west one is not ready yet. The project will resume in the spring, and is scheduled for completion in early fall of 2008.

Santa visit

Tyrell Kempf, four, told Santa and Mrs. Claus what he wanted for Christmas while visiting with the pair Saturday at the Fort Frances Museum. Children had their pictures taken with the jolly couple, enjoyed cookies and cocoa, and also were invited to join in some games and activities. The event was put on by the local Business Improvement Association.

Secret agents

Students from Fort Frances High School’s Muskie Theatre rehearsed a scene from “Get Smart” during a dress rehearsal of the production last night at the Townshend Theatre. The show is set to open there tomorrow (Dec. 6) at 7 p.m. and run until Saturday. Tickets can be purchased at Northwoods Gallery & Gifts or at the door.

Wreaths galore

Lyn Henderson, left, and Tammy Kellar, along with other members of the Riverside Foundation for Health Care’s special events committee, made wreaths and other crafts Monday night in preparation for its “Wreaths ’n Things” fundraiser later this week.

‘I got it!’

Emma Elliott (centre) got ready to dig the ball in the regular-season opener for the Muskie senior girls’ volleyball team here yesterday afternoon against the Kenora Broncos. The visitors won the first set 25-13, lost the second one 25-20, and then finished off the best-of-five match by taking the next two 25-7 and 25-18.
