Laura Horton and Doug Sinclair stopped across from La Verendrye Hospital to offer tobacco for the Rainy River yesterday morning during the Youth and Elder Water Walk, which aims to raise awareness about the importance of local waterways and the responsibility to keep them clean and healthy. The walk, which saw participants take turns walking and driving, began at Seven Oaks and was scheduled to end at Hannam Park in the Town of Rainy River today with a closing ceremony at 6 p.m.
