Rainy River Town Councillor Gord Armstrong took the Record on a tour of the badly damaged Government Dock at Hannam Park last week. Debris, such as the log he is pointing to, is lodged into the dock and the decking is lifted in many places. Efforts to clean up the park by volunteers began last week. It, like the dock, were left a mess by floodwaters in June. To see all this week's photos click on link at right of this page.
The Rainy Fun Fly was a great success again this year. The grey skies didn't stop the pilots from launching their prized possessions. There were lots of great activities during Railroad Daze this year.
The Railroad Daze Parade is always one of the most popular parts of the annual festival and last year was no exception! Here is one of the floats that have been in the event pretty much every year since the festival started in 1988! It is the Rainy River Knights of Columbus. This year's parade begins at 11:30 a.m. at the bottom of Main St.
Riitta Caruso, owner and operator of A-1 Sewing and Upholstery, is seen here working on a customer's work coveralls. She can sew or recover just about anything and so far she has had quite a mix of business!

For more than 19 months Rainy River has been without a gas station. Customers like Bob Johnston, left, are glad Paul Caruso, right, has opened, as seen here when Johnston stopped by last Thursday to get some fuel at Busy Beaver Fuels!
