Premier visit

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne visited with Kiannah Payash, left, Olivia Nastiuk, Morgan Payash and Harmony Payash at the United Native Friendship Centre Circle of Life building yesterday as part of her week-long tour of Northern Ontario.

Working together

Teddy Donaldson, eight, assisted Rainycrest resident Lou Neilson with a craft there Saturday during an arts and crafts session offered by Shawna Holmlund. The local artist, now residing in Ottawa, is looking for youngsters to help with a wind chime project this coming Saturday.

Holodomor tour

Sheri De Gagné checked out some of the information displayed outside the Holodomor bus, which stopped at the Fort Frances Public Library on Saturday during its national awareness tour. Promoting awareness of the Soviet-orchestrated famine, the mobile classroom featured short videos shown on a 30-foot video wall.

Water play

Ronni Maynard, three, had fun playing with water squirters during the “Open Streets” event in Emo yesterday afternoon. The second-annual initiative, hosted by the Township of Emo and the Northwestern Health Unit, saw a portion of Front Street closed to traffic to allow pedestrians to run, play, walk and dance on the street.

Watering garden

Emma Williamson watered her garden while Kadynce Chabot looked on last night during the Kids Garden Club at the Fort Frances Community Garden. Despite it being a very warm evening, several youngsters turned out to weed and water their plots, as well as to remove potato bugs that have recently invaded the garden.

Under construction

Work is underway on the new Donald Young School classroom wing, which is being built directly in front of the current building. Frequent thunderstorms with heavy downpours that have occurred since June has delayed the construction of the new wing of the school by two to four weeks. The school board does not expect any safety issues operating the school during construction.
