Rope Trick

Tanner Neilson and his mom, Trish, tried their hand at rope spinning after receiving lessons from Ryan M. Taylor, author of “Cowboy Logic,” during a friendly competition at the RRFA’s annual meeting and supper in the Barwick Hall on Saturday evening. About 100 people turned out to enjoy the food and after-dinner entertainment.

Library week fast approaching

A ribbon- and cake-cutting ceremony also will take place Friday, Oct. 24 at 2 p.m. to celebrate the automating of the library’s borrowing system.

Everyone is welcome to attend.

Cadets starting up soon

Cadets, which is being held at the Christian Reformed Church in Emo, is a club for boys aged nine-15 (as of the end of December).

Humourous skit

Pam Bujold, Trudy Badiuk, Sherri Byma, Neila Booth, Becky Chabot, Robin McCormick, and Freeda Carmody staged a skit to remind those who attended last Wednesday’s 50+ seniors’ expo in Emo that the best way to handle the difficulties of aging is to maintain a healthy sense of humour. See story B5.
