You are here



Alacea and Emma Yerxa showed off the miniature Santas they found at the craft tables during the annual Remembrance Day tea held Sunday afternoon at the Legion. Hosted by the local Legion Ladies’ Auxilary, there were raffles, baked goods, crafts, and prizes, alongside tea, sandwiches, and dainties.

Paying respects

Donald S. Easton, president of the Royal Canadian Legion Br. #29, left, was escorted by Cde. Glenn Westover to lay a wreath on behalf of the local Legion during yesterday’s Remembrance Day ceremony at the Fort Frances cenotaph.

Trying to deke

Muskie forward Zach McCool stretched out to slide a power-play goal past Shattuck-St.Mary’s goalie Marcus Zelzer to narrow the gap to 4-3 during Friday’s game here. But that was as close as the black-and-gold would get as the visitors iced the win with an empty-net goal shortly afterwards.

Robert Moore remembers

Grade 3 students recited the poem, “Remembrance Day,” at a ceremony this morning at Robert Moore School. The assembly also featured opening prayers by Pastor Brian Keffer and Elder Nancy Jones, the Thunder Horse Singers drum group, a Colour Guard provided by the local Legion’s ladies’ auxilary, recitations of “In Flanders Fields,” and other songs and poems.

Give peace a chance

This poster by Robert Moore student Storm Angecomb is among the entries in the Fort Frances Lions Club’s annual peace poster contest. The winning posters, and honourable mentions, from Robert Moore, J.W. Walker, St. Francis, Crossroads, and Mine Centre School will be on display at the Fort Frances Museum until Nov. 22.

Muskies swept

The Muskie boys’ hockey team battled the Shattuck-St.Mary’s ‘AAA’ team here over the weekend but came out on the short end of three-straight losses by scores of 5-3, 5-1, and 3-1. The series was a good first test for the black-and-gold as Shattuck already is 20 games into their season. Fort High opens its NorWOSSA regular-season Wednesday on the road against the Dryden Eagles.

Safety award

Kristie Steele, second from the left, of AbitibiBowater, presented Betty-Anne MacKintosh, manager of community services and quality assurance for Family & Children’s Services, FACS board member Meghan Haehn, OPP Cst.

Trees of remembrance

Lorine Ring placed a Maple Leaf during the annual Remembrance Day tea, hosted by the local Legion ladies’ auxilary, yesterday afternoon. For a small a donation, people could write the name of a friend or loved one who was involved with one of the wars, and have it placed on the tree alongside others.
