The Fund may also engage in option writing strategies to enhance income and manage risk and may, from time to time, engage in the short-selling of securities that the Investment Advisor (as defined below) believes are overvalued."

As previously announced, the special meeting of Shareholders of Front Street Resource Class will also consider a change to the fundamental investment objectives of that fund to the following:

The Fund may, from time to time, engage in the short-selling of securities that the Investment Advisor believes are overvalued."

If this change in fundamental investment objectives is approved, Front Street Resource Class will be renamed Front Street Resource Growth and Income Class.

"Investment Advisor" means Front Street Investment Management Inc., the investment manager of each fund.
