Local – Today is the start of the annual Wawa Ice Fishing Derby. If you don’t have a ticket yet, you have only a few hours left to get one. Registration today is at the Michipicoten Memorial Community Centre.

Local historian and author, Johanna Rowe has been published in the ‘150 Stories’. She was recently in Toronto to meet with The Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, “Ontario’s Storyteller-in-Chief” as she has titled herself.

From the website, “150 Stories is a collection of new stories and images that speak eloquently about what it means to be Canadian in Ontario. Listening to each other is a first step in creating the communities and country of which we can be proud. Let thoughtful and peaceful engagement be our gift to the future and our legacy to the world at large. In-person visitors will receive a complimentary printed copy of 150 Stories.” Members of the public are able to view the exhibition in person on selected days (Monday to Friday) during tours of the Legislative Building at Queen’s Park.

Johanna’s submission is story 110, and you can click this link to read her submission.
