Students voting

Fort Frances High School student Cassie Krawchuk, left, directed a line of her peers on how to the school's voting boxes during Student Vote Canada 2019 on Thursday. Students were able to learn about the federal parties, local candidates and the platforms in this year's federal election and cast a ballot for their choice.

Play rehearsal

There's safety in numbers . . . or is there? These students don't look too worried about “The Fort Frances Strangler" as they rehearse for the high school's fall play "Scared Silly.” The show runs this Thursday through Saturday and features nine skits so funny, it's also a little bit scary.

Chiropractor visit

Dr. Jeremy McGuire visited Mrs. Gurski's Grade 4/5 class at St. Francis school on Friday morning to talk to them about the skeletal and muscular systems of the human body. Dr. McGuire also imparted the importance of maintaining flexibility and fitness levels in life in order to maintain a higher level of health and mobility as people age.

Rehearsing scene

Could there be a killer among these Fort Frances High School students as they rehearsed a scene for their fall play, “Scared Silly" on Saturday evening? The spooky comedy is made up of nine short skits in an anthology style similar to "Creepshow" or "Tales from the Crypt," and will have audiences howling with laughter even as the chills race down their spines.

FFHS votes

DJ Payne, left, and Josh Ward dropped their votes in the ballot boxes during Fort Frances High School's Student Vote 2019 this morning in the high school atrium. The votes have been taking place most of this week, with students able to go to the atrium, learn about the local representatives and platforms of each federal party, and cast a vote for their choice.

McCartney tribute

Singer Ken Lavigne, front, shared the stage with a standee of Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney during his performance at the Townshend Theatre on Thursday. The classically-trained tenor was touring his “Three Knights with a Tenor” show as part of the Tour de Fort season, which saw him performing songs from McCartney's catalogue of hits as well as Sir Elton John and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Cafeteria lineup

Students at Fort Frances High School lines up for the offerings from the cafeteria on Friday. The cafeteria is being run by The Caf Co, and Friday's menu offered chicken caesar wraps, meat and cheese bowls, yogurt parfaits and two different kinds of smoothie.

Glow run pulls in sizable crowd

It was a break in the weather that couldn't have worked out any better.

The Fort Frances branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) held their sixth-annual “Steps Against Stigma” 5k walk/run last Wednesday night at the Sorting Gap Marina.

Even before the event concluded, organizers were excited by the turnout and support they saw.
