The Chapple Heritage annual Fall Supper was held at the Community Centre Friday evening. According to Reeve Bill Clink, approximately 125 came out to enjoy homemade stew, bread, salads and pies.
Entertainment was furnished by six members from the Rainy Lake Legion Br. #29 Highlanders of Fort Frances. They were greeted and welcomed by Councillor Rilla Race. Their music included the playing of Amazing Grace, and they performed several Scottish tunes. The audience appreciated the playing and let the group know by enthusiastically applauding them.
All proceeds from the fundraiser are directed towards the Chapple Museum on Front Street.
