‘Country Jam’ keeps growing

The Emo Legion hosted its fifth monthly “Country Music Jam” on Friday.

Each time, as people learn about it, more and more come our to enjoy a variety of old-time country music songs and dances.

About 100 were in attendance this month, who listened, danced, and sang along to old favourites such as “Seven Spanish Angels” and “Waltz Across Texas.”

Bible college’s worship teams visit district schools, church

“Free Servant,” Steinbach Bible College’s student-led worship team, and “New Creation,” the college’s drama troupe, visited the district earlier this week.

On Monday, they visited the Sturgeon Creek Alternative Program in Stratton in the morning, then performed at the Fort Frances Evangelical Fellowship Church that evening.

Former Emo resident garners athletic success

Former Emo resident Alexa Winik has achieved the kind of success that’s only dreamed about by most young athletes.

The 18-year-old freshman track star, the daughter of Joe and Tricia Winik, recently set several individual records while helping her Cedarville University track team win another National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) indoor track national championship.

41 years and still going strong!

Although winter just doesn’t seem to want to loosen its grip on the district, a large number of people from across the area turned out to celebrate Spring Fever Days in Emo on April 16-18.

Merchants and event organizers all were pleased with the warm, sunny weather on Friday and with the number of people who decided to take advantage of the spring-like atmosphere.
