His Eminence, Metropolitan Yurij, the Primate of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Canada, travelled from Winnipeg to provide a special service at St. George's Ukrainian Orthodox Church here Sunday morning in celebration of its 70th anniversary. Following the service, members of the congregation and their guests enjoyed a luncheon at La Place Rendez-Vous.

Going up

Town of Fort Frances summer students were hard at work this morning helping to set up the big tent at the Sorting Gap Marina for the Fort Frances Bass Championship that starts next Thursday (July 20). There is a temporary road closure on the part of Front Street where the tent will be set up for the next 10 days.

Collecting rocks

Gareth and Lilith Scott searched for rocks along the shore at Point Park yesterday afternoon in hopes of finding the perfect one to paint for their creation during the weekly Open Air Art Studio staged by Community Living Fort Frances and District. Children also created mandalas out of materials they found from nature, such as sticks, leaves, flowers, and pebbles.

Painting flower

Via Lockman enjoyed painting a flower recycled from a used plastic water bottle last Thursday afternoon at the Community Living Open Air Studio at Hammond's Nursery here. The next open air studio will be at Point Park this Thursday from 3-7 p.m., where participants will be making painted rocks and mandalas. Everyone is welcome to stop in to enjoy creating art.

Tossing beanbag

Kate Parsons, the summer student at the Northwestern Health Unit here, helped Daisy Degagne aim her bean bag last Thursday morning at “Pop Up Play,” which was located at the Lillie Avenue Park. The initiative, which encourages activities and exercise in the community through fun and games, will occur at different green spaces around town every Thursday throughout the summer.

Big dice

Sebastian Pavier played with a set of inflatable dice at the Lillie Avenue Park as part of “Pop Up Play," a program put on by the Town of Fort Frances Recreation Department, the Northwestern Health Unit and Kidsport that encourages games and activities to revive play in neighbourhoods. "Pop Up Play” happens every Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at various locations around town.
