O Canada

The Fun in the Sun Committee was overwhelmed with a wide variety of entries to their Canada Day contests this year. To celebrate Canada, COVID-style, the committee launched a colouring contest, a writing contest and a home and business decorating contest, with participants sending pictures of their patriotic submissions.

Burning rubber

Emo Speedway roared to life on Saturday, as 20 drivers took to the track for practice laps in a Test and Tune event. The first race of the season will take place this Saturday, July 11. Although spectators will not be allowed, there will be up to 60 cars participating in three divisions.

Market square

Virginia Bruyere was on hand last week, making and selling beaded items at the Rainy Lake Square Market. The market runs every Thursday in the downtown Fort Frances square, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., featuring local handiwork, produce and other items.

Shade Break

What better way to beat the heat on a sunny Saturday morning than to take a break in the shade with a friendly gardener? This group had the right idea as they toured Diane and George Glowasky’s gardens during the Friends of the Museum Garden Tour this weekend. The Glowasky’s were one of six homes that participants could visit to take in the hard and creative work that gardening entails.

Canada Day BBQ

Volunteers at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Fort Frances prepared a feast-worthy amount of take-out BBQ meals on Canada Day. The meals were provided free of charge to anyone who happened to pass by the church and other bags were sent out for delivery to help everyone celebrate the nation’s birthday.
