Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is March 8 and the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario (Rainy River District local) is observing the event with a celebration at the Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau on March 6.
“It’s a celebration of women,” stressed organizer Lorina Fryer, noting everyone is welcome to attend (both men and women).
It will begin at 5 p.m. next Thursday with a light meal, followed by some entertainment.
Tickets cost $10 each, which can be purchased from Fryer (contact her at 274-0749) or at the Volunteer Bureau (located in the old CN station).
All money raised from the event will go to the Atikokan Crisis Centre.
This year’s global theme for International Women’s Day is “Shaping Progress.”
