Your community is thinking of you at this sad time.

A big thank you to all involved with the dinner theatre, “Monday at the Manner,” held last Thursday through Saturday at La Place Rendez-Vous in Fort Frances.
The play, written and directed by Fort Frances resident Tracy Gibson, was light-hearted and fun. The nine local performers also were superb in their roles.
It was a great way to spend an evening!

Everybody wants to change the world but nobody wants to change the toilet paper.
Be that change!
