Lions' auction

Auctioneer Bud McQuaker did an excellent job of getting the crowd to bid on the items during the live auction on Saturday night. The club would like to thank him for volunteering his services and all those who donated so many fabulous prizes.

'Drive Away Hunger'

Harsha Rathod, a senior accountant at BDO Canada here, collected food donations as part of Farm Credit Canada's “Drive Away Hunger” campaign last Friday at Cloverleaf Grocery in Emo. BDO staff collected $883 and 464 lbs. of food which went to the Emo Food Bank located in the former St. George's Anglican Church.

Open Streets fun

The Northwestern Health Unit organized games of all kinds for the children during Emo's “Open Streets” party. One highlight for many of the children was the sandbox in the middle of the street. Special sand allowed them to build imaginative creations. Children from Emo and throughout the district attended this annual event.

Patriotic procession

The children were the hit of the Canada Day parade in Barwick, which was held on Saturday, June 29. This year's parade include antique vehicles, tractors, and of course, the children on their bikes and waving from floats. Below, the Barwick Community Church did an excellent job of turning a fancy fishing boat into this year's float for the parade.
