SHANIA GOES HOME

Yesterday Shania Twain returned to her hometown of Timmins, Ontario, as she was welcomed home to inaugurate a museum built in her honor. According to the Canadian Press, about 5,000 folks turned up in a parking lot outside the Shania Twain Centre, a sprawling facility that houses her trophies, wedding dress and a variety of stage outfits. But Shania started the day with a surprise visit to the Timmins High and Vocational School, which she attended as a teenager. Shania presented the school with a $10,000 Band-Aid grant from the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences for the purchase of musical instruments at an assembly of about 500 students. In return, the school's principal gave Shania hockey jerseys from the school - one for her and a "pint-sized version" for her son, Eja. Later, Shania took a private tour of the Shania Twain Centre before cutting the official ribbon and signing autographs for the fans.
