Change clocks, batteries this weekend

As this weekend's time change approaches, the Fort Frances Fire & Rescue Service reminds you to make another change that could save lives - “Change the Batteries in your Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarms.”

Replacing smoke and CO (carbon monoxide) alarm batteries and testing alarms monthly are two of the simplest, most effective ways to ensure the safety of your family.

Family Centre addresses homeless problem here

Since the end of January, the Fort Frances Family Centre on Scott Street has ensured there is a warm place for homeless people to go at night to keep them out of the cold.

Up until Feb. 19, the centre stayed open 24/7. But now that the Fort Frances Volunteer Bureau has opened its doors as a “warming centre” for three nights a week, the centre has stayed open for the other four.

'Shamrock' tea coming up

The Emo and District Hospital Auxiliary will host its annual “Shamrock” tea and bake sale on Friday, March 15 from 1:30-3 p.m. at the hospital cafeteria.

There will be baking and goodies for sale, and a draw also will take place on a beautiful hand-made table designed and constructed by Don Manty.

Admission is $5, with tickets available at Gillons' in Emo or at the door.
