January tradition

tossing tree

Duane Hicks

Fire officer Gavin Payne tossed another tree onto the trailer while his crew made their way down Frenette Avenue during the Fort Frances Fire Brigade’s annual Christmas tree pick-up Saturday afternoon. This might be the final year for the pick-up as fewer and fewer residents have real Christmas trees. The brigade instead may opt next year to have a central drop-off site for residents to bring their trees to for disposal.
