Rainy River-area residents were treated to a terrific performance of a Shakespeare classic, “Romeo & Juliet,” by Rainy River High School’s Owl Theatre.

Two performances were offered to the public—one on Wednesday evening and the second in a dinner-theatre setting on Saturday night.

The Rainy River Cattlemen’s Association held another successful sale at its sales barn in Stratton on Saturday.
