'Run for the Donut' in works

The second-annual “Run for the Donut” is planned and ready to go.

Runners are advised to lace up their shoes and start preparing for the 5K race hosted by the Rainy Running Club, the Municipality of Emo, and the “Run for the Donut” committee.

You are invited to run or walk the scenic route at the Lions Park in Emo, then enjoy doughnuts and prizes at the finish line!

Diabetes camper

Emma T. and her sister, Molly, from Crossroads School in Devlin, were on hand at the Emo and District Lions Club's September meeting to tell members about her experience this summer at the Diabetes Canada Camp (D-Camp) in Kenora. Emma was sponsored by the club to attend the camp in August. She did a great presentation, which was warmly received by all those on hand.

'Country Jam' coming up

The next “Country Jam” will take place on Friday, Sept. 21 starting around 7 p.m. at the Emo Legion.

Admission is $2, which is used to help pay the bill for the lights and air conditioning.

If you love to dance, or just like sitting and listening to some old country tunes, then mark the date on your calendar, bring a friend, and plan on having a wonderful evening.
