Teen dance set again this year

Staff

Teenagers wanting to get in on the Fort Frances Canadian Bass Championship will be able to enjoy an event just for themselves.
A teen dance—once again being held in conjunction with the FFCBC—in set for this Wednesday (July 22) under the big tent at the Sorting Gap Marina.
Open to those aged 13-19, it will run from 8 p.m.-midnight.
Admission is $5.
Kathy Cuthbertson, who sits on the FFCBC board of directors, organized this year’s dance and said it will be as big of a hit as it has been in past years.
“It’s going to be a lot of fun,” she enthused. “We usually get about 300 or 400 kids every year.
“It’s great.”
Cliff Pidlubny will be the DJ, with non-alcoholic refreshments available for those attending.
Although she’s tried to have less of a role in planning the FFCBC each year, Cuthbertson said she’s always liked to be part of an event like this.
“I think it’s always important to have something for the teenagers because there isn’t anything else,” she reasoned.
Cuthbertson added organizers still are looking for volunteers to chaperone the dance, and also could also use extra hands during the bass tournament itself.
A volunteer sign-up will be held outside the tent starting at 4 p.m. on Wednesday.
