Running towards a goal

The members of Lori Leduc's running club at the United Native Friendship Centre ran drills at the Point Park last Thursday. Leduc is a national level runner who has formed running clubs in several communities she's lived in, with the UNFC's club working on their fitness levels and incorporating cultural teachings.

Moose on the moove

Bob Green, Kurt Carlson and Jim Garvie posed for a photo with the most famous moose in town as it was being transported to its new home yesterday afternoon. The moose, formerly a fixture of the Fort Frances Tourist Information Centre, was carefully being moved out to the Fort Frances Municipal Airport by town staff, and its removable antlers were safely stowed away while in transit.

Volleyball

Drills have been underway at Point Park for the 807 Selects Volleyball Club. Coach Terry McMahon has long range plans for the volleyball club, as a way to develop local talent to compete on a larger level.

Food to go

Staff at the United Native Friendship Centre's Circle of Life building on Mowat Ave. were hard at work putting together roughly 250 take out-ready bags of fresh groceries and produce for those who wanted them on Thursday morning.

Cemeteries

When parks staff found themselves unable to keep up with the work of maintaining cemeteries, the Town hired a small student crew, which is dedicated to the facilities. Mayor caul has been pleased with the results, and thanks families and other citizens who have pitched in to beautify the town.
