People from near and far attended the 31st-annual community Christmas dinner at Knox United Church here Tuesday afternoon. Above, Emilia Suminska, hailing from Warsaw, Poland, and Mike Kempf, originally from Fort Frances but now living in Finland, joined Kempf’s mother, Bernice, for a delicious meal. Meanwhile, below left, Marlon, Camille, and Katrina Hagarty enjoyed a dessert while below right, Marc-Andre Michon, left, and Maria Gilbert were among the volunteers who served up food to everyone who attended the dinner. The delicious meal was prepared by volunteer cooks Sharon Gurski, JoAnne Formanek Gustafson, and Tracy Clarke. Organized by the Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau once again, the dinner was busy for a solid two hours on Christmas Day. Dinner guests also were treated to a performance of the Christmas cantata, “Good News from Home,” thanks to the Fort Frances Choraliers.
