Family fun

John Stevens helped his grandson, Kaiden Jansen, build a small “gingerbread” house made of graham crackers, icing, and candy yesterday evening during a Christmas family night at J.W. Walker School. Given its gym remains under repair, the school held a family night instead of a traditional Christmas concert this year.

Festive songs

Mme. Von Niebelschutz’s Grade 4-8 girls’ choir performed a trio of songs, including “Sleigh Ride,” “Winter Wonderland,” and “Silver Bells,” during Robert Moore School’s Christmas concert there last night.

Early present

It was an exciting morning at the Fort Frances Nursery School yesterday with cookies, games, and a visit from Santa Claus himself. Here, Reed Mckinnon opened up the little pre-Christmas gift he received from Jolly St. Nick.

Con college sale

Stacy Wilder, left, secretary of the Student Union of Confederation College Inc. (SUCCI), sold John Hendrickson some holiday treats Saturday during a Christmas bake sale at the local campus. SUCCI held the sale, which also featured photos with Santa, to raise funds to offset the expensive cost of graduation photos.

Gift of song

The Emo Centennial Choir took their show on the road Monday evening as they visited the seniors at the Golden Age Manor, the Emo Health Centre, and Queen Street Manor. The residents and staff enjoyed listening to many of the choir’s songs from their recent Christmas concert.

Dribbling around

Muskie Justin Anderson (#34) looked to drive to the hoop during his team’s 56-53 win over the Churchill Trojans here Saturday. The senior boys’ basketball team finished second in their home tournament with a 3-1 record.

One tale not told

Harry Bailey (Michael Brady) tries to explain to the rather roughed up Miller (Lyle Dolph) why his tale just wasn’t an appropriate one to tell during Fort Frances High School’s presentation of “The Canterbury Tales” last Thursday through Saturday at the Townshend Theatre.
