Fire safety

Firefighters from across the district were on hand Saturay for a fire safety demonstration at Cloverleaf in Emo. Ben and Emily Olson were on hand to assist in setting up the display, as well as handing out safety reminder information to everyone who stopped by. Be sure to thank our volunteer firefighters for their hard work and dedication.


Participation was high at this year's annual cross-country meet at Crossroads School in Devlin on Friday. Runners from schools across Rainy River District enjoyed a brisk fall day as they competed against friends from other schools. Everyone had a great day and most were pleased with their results.

Donut duo

Trent Wilson and Ashlyn Beck went stride for stride through Lions Park as they participated in the inaugural “Run for the Donut.” They topped the male and female divisions, respectively.

'Run for the Donut' deemed a success

Emo's first “Run for the Donut” 5K held Saturday morning was deemed a total success by organizers.

Some 87 eager participants enjoyed a beautiful fall morning while doing a double loop around Front Street and the Lions Park before finishing near the pavilion.

The event was the culmination of Emo's “Rainy River Running” walk/run program that began earlier this fall.
