A Fort Frances Power Corp. crew has been busy this week taking down winter decorations from lampposts along Scott Street to make way for new banners purchased by the Downtown BIA.  Downtown BIA chair Connie Cuthbertson said yesterday that the new banners, which the BIA commissioned local artist Lindsay Hamilton to create, should be installed by the end of the month.

The banners have been cut from metal, and have a finish applied to them to give them colour and texture.
