Picture Your Future Tour - Week One Recap

(Photos and Content by Lucas Johnson for the Ontario Colleges Picture Your Future Tour) And so comes an end to week one. Our brave and tenacious crew ventured far into the beautiful North West of Ontario alongside the Ontario Colleges tour. For the first leg, the weather was a little rough at first but similarly to high school going into college, there was light at the end of the tunnel for our faithful crew.   Dryden was our first official stop and what a place to start! The staff and students had an amazingly upbeat attitude and were incredibly welcoming. This first show was also accompanied by the tour’s alumni, none other than Adrian the video guru.  With day one in the books, we headed to the border town of beautiful Fort Frances. I just gotta say, we were spellbound by the level of hospitality we were blessed with by…
