Artists sought to design local stamp

The post office in Fort Frances is looking for any local artists interested in creating a unique design to be used as a cancellation stamp.
Local postmaster Anthony Smaha noted many towns have a unique design they use to cancel postage which comes through their office.
He said the design needs to be simple because it will be shrunk down to one inch by one inch, and should incorporate different elements that could represent the community of Fort Frances.
Anyone interested in participating should bring their design to the post office by Aug. 18, after which the winner will be decided through an informal vote.
For more information, call the post office at 274-5573.
