A winter wonderland

A moonlit stroll through downtown Fort Frances shows that the Shops on Scott are dressed for Christmas magic. This year, the Fort Frances Chamber of Commerce is supporting efforts to Shop Local, with a Bingo Card promotion. Pick up a card at participating shops, businesses and restaurants, or the Fort Frances Chamber, and the merchant will stamp it with your purchase of $25 or more. A stamped row enters you in a draw for one of three meat packs, courtesy of Cornell Farms and Sunrise Meats. Deadline to enter is 6 p.m. December 19. For more information, stop by a downtown merchant, or e-mail: thefort@fortfranceschamber.com.
