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).

Through Cadets, the boys will be involved in activities such as exploring, merit badges, projects, camp, Bible Studies, meeting new friends, and much more. Meetings are bi-weekly starting next Wednesday (Oct. 15) from 7-9 p.m.

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.

Second-annual harvest dinner all ready to go

Rainy River District’s second-annual harvest dinner will be held Saturday, Sept. 27 at the Devlin Hall. Todd Moxham of CATER 2 U, a locally-owned cooking and catering company, will be this year’s chef.

The main entrée will be none other than the 4-H grand champion market steer raised by Kerry Hyatt. The beef not used for the meal will be auctioned off by Telford Advent.
