Canada Day Parade up for grabs

Dear editor,

I would like the opportunity to explain to the citizens of Fort Frances about the Canada Day Parade because I have been asked many times in the last month about parade details. The Fun In The Sun committee/Canada Day committee has NOT been responsible for the parade, only activities before and after. In the past, the Rainy River Future Development Corporation has organized the parade, supporting it with prizes and a suggested theme. I was notified this year that they were not organizing the parade and there was no notification to the public so that an organization or club could take the reins like the Kiwanis did with the Santa Clause parade.

The FITS committee has decided due to weather conditions that we are concentrating on the concert at the Duke Arena where the Twin Flames will be performing. This is a FREE concert that will be sure to entertain those that attend.

I thank you for your space in your paper.
