Turning in pills


Canada Safeway pharmacist David Schwartz accepted some old medication from Karl Tosberg last week as part of the ongoing “Medicine Cabinet Cleanout Contest.” The Fort Frances Seniors’ Coalition, in partnership with the Rainy River District Substance Abuse Prevention Team and Northwestern Health Unit, is holding the second-annual contest until the end of this week (March 31), and district residents are being encouraged to participate for a chance to win a prize. Just drop off old medication at any of these participating sites: the Fort Frances Clinic Dispensary, Pharmasave Downtown, the Canada Safeway pharmacy, Shoppers Drug Mart, the Wal-Mart pharmacy, Emo Drugs, and Rainy River Drugs. —Duane Hicks photo
