Saturday morning hockey to begin

The Emo rec council is pleased to announce it will be starting Saturday morning hockey for children from senior kindergarten-Grade 4 who already can skate. All participants also are required to wear full hockey equipment.

The purpose of this program, which will run every Saturday from 8-9 a.m. starting on Jan. 10, is to teach players the basic hockey skills and to have some fun.

Renovation time

Major renovations and an expansion are taking place at Tompkins Home Hardware in Emo over the next several weeks. Although shelves are being moved and products relocated, the store remains open. If you are looking for something specific, just ask any of the staff.

Holiday fun

Turner and Morgan Redford and friends took advantage of the milder weather after Christmas to enjoy the outdoor skating rink in Emo. On good days, district residents can be seen skating or taking part in a game of hockey there.

Christmas production

The Nutcracker and Marie entered the Kingdom of Sweets during a production of “The Nutcracker” last Tuesday (Dec. 16) at Donald Young School in Emo. Everyone had a part, whether it was as the main characters or the fairies, the mice, the dancing Arabs, the sheep herders, the Russian bakers, the Chinese tea party dancers, the colourful flowers, the camel, and the choir.

Neighbourly gathering

Members of the Ojibwe class at Donald Young School in Emo entertained those on hand with “Silent Night,” sung in their native language, during the local Right Relations Circle’s potluck feast held last Thursday (Dec. 18) at Knox United Church in Emo. The evening, entitled “Get to Know Our Neighbours,” was attended by people from across the district and deemed a success by organizers.
