Turnout strong for ‘Spring Fever Days’

Despite some weather Saturday that definitely was not spring-like, this year’s “Spring Fever Days” in Emo was extremely well-attended by people from across the district.

The annual celebration of spring started with some lovely weather on Friday. The Emo Legion was busy with people stopping by for soup and a sandwich, and to check out the crafts and other tables.
