Fairy lantern craft

Maddie Buttner enjoyed putting together her “magical fairy jar lantern" during one of the March Break activities held at the Fort Frances Public Library last week. The craft used patterns that were designed on the library's new "Cricut Maker.”


Millie Witherspoon enjoyed participating in the blanket-making workshop last Wednesday afternoon at the Sunset Country Métis Hall here. People from Fort Frances and the surrounding area came together to make blankets as well as socialize.
