Giant steel screws are set by a machine powered screw driver. They can be seen as far as the eye can see and will soon hold up racks of solar panels over about 300 acres of land near Pinewood. This photo was taken last Thursday in one of the three adjacent solar farm fields.

Just in time for the Fair!

Rainy River Librarian Michael Dawber shows off some of the library’s new children’s books on farming and rural life.

The titles are now on display at the library in time for the Annual Fall Fair, which runs August 14-16.

Badly damaged

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.

Grey Skies buy Good Flys

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.

Parade time!

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.
