'Warm Wishes' tree

Heather Latter of the Fort Frances Times, right, presented Marla Thomson, branch manager of Northern Lights Credit Union here, with the “Tree of Warm Wishes” this morning. In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, the tree was decorated by Times’ staff to be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow flower pot, complete with chocolate gold coins. The tree, originally made by St. Francis student Alyssa Chiasson, was among the 30 that have been distributed into the community by students as a means to start “a chain reaction of kindness.” Those who receive a tree are asked to redecorate it and then pass it on.
