There also will be a Family Photo Scavenger Hunt from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Addressing haggis

Carole Mackintosh delivered the traditional “Ode to the Haggis” with a great deal of drama and humour Saturday night during the annual Robbie Burns Supper hosted by the Emo and District Lions Club at the Emo Legion. Although spoken in Gaelic, Mackintosh conveyed the meaning through her facial expressions and body language. She later explained that Burns wrote the address in jest.

Burns' supper a success

This year's Robbie Burns Supper, hosted by the Emo and District Lions Club, was deemed a success by everyone on hand.

About 80 people enjoyed a fantastic roast beef supper, including the traditional haggis, on Saturday night at the Emo Legion.

The evening kicked off with the traditional piping in of the haggis by Piper Bruce Lidkea from the Fort Frances Highlanders.
