Still some breakfast tickets left


Tomorrow is the last chance to get your tickets for the Fort Frances Kiwanis Club’s Good Friday breakfast at La Place Rendez-Vous.
June Caul, who is co-organizing the event with Diane Maxey, said this morning that some tickets are left.
But if you want to go, you’ll have to get them prior to the end of the day tomorrow as tickets will not be sold at the door.
Tickets, which cost $10 each, are available from all Kiwanis members, as well as at several locations around town, including Lidkea Optometry, Northwoods Gallery & Gifts, and Robin Wright-Investors Syndicate.
Organizers are hoping to sell upwards of 230 for the breakfast, which gets underway at 8 a.m.
Rev. Jacob Quast, with the Church of the Lutheran Hour here, will be the guest speaker while the “Fort Harmonies,” the choir led by Maxey, will provide the music.
The event began back in 1994 by Kiwanis past governor Ken Koprowski.
Its purpose is to celebrate Good Friday in a spirit of unity with a non-denominational event.
The cost of the breakfast is subsidized by the Kiwanis, so it also serves as a way for the club to say “thank you” to the public for its support.
In related news, the Easter cantata, once again directed by Maxey, will be performed Sunday, April 15 starting at 3 p.m. at St. Mary’s Church.
Admission is a free-will offering.
A repeat performance will be held Sunday, April 22 at St. Thomas Aquinas Church in International Falls.
