District mourning an 'amazing woman'

In my last 20 years of writing the Devlin news, it is fair to say some weeks are more difficult than others to write about what's happening.

This week certainly is one of them—starting here in our own district. And I say district because the sudden passing of the beautiful (inside and out) Kim Clendenning (nee Belluz) has touched our entire area and beyond.

RRVAS kick-off dinner coming soon

The Rainy River Valley Agricultural Society will hold a fundraising kick-off dinner in support of its new building project on Saturday, Sept. 16 at the Emo/La Vallee Arena.

Cocktails are at 5 p.m. (cash bar), followed by dinner at 6 p.m. featuring roast pork, potatoes, beans, coleslaw, homemade buns, apple crisp, and ice cream.

An auction and penny table to follow.

Three fires strike district last week

Three fires hit our area over the past week.

Gerri Mutz lost her home last Thursday. Our community would like to send her thoughts and prayers as she struggles with the immense loss of her beautiful log home, plus all the belongings and memories a family acquires over many years.

That same day, a fire occurred on Roy Street in Emo, causing intense damage.
