March Break activities planned

They’ve been counting down the hours—even minutes—until today’s final bell marking the beginning of March Break.
But after a few days of sleeping in, watching TV, and playing video games, most kids are bound to utter that dreaded phrase—“I’m bored.”
Here are a few suggestions for how to combat the winter blues during the upcoming March Break.
The Memorial Sports Centre will hold “loonie” swims each weekday from 1:30-4 p.m. and from 2-4 p.m. on the weekends.
Others can enjoy “loonie” skates at the ’52 Canadians Arena on Monday to Wednesday from 10-11:30 a.m. and at the Ice for Kids Arena on Thursday from 10-11:30 a.m.
Those interested in making crafts can check out the “Threadworks” exhibit at the Fort Frances Museum, which features needlework, masks, quilts, and other creations from the Ontario Association of Needleworkers.
Kids who drop by the exhibit during March Break will be able to make their own collages for $2.
And a “Monster Mash” for youngsters aged six and up is planned next Thursday (March 14) at 2 p.m. in the Children’s Department of the Fort Frances Public Library.
Pre-registration is required by calling 274-9870.
