Plans underway for Family Day

As most people are aware, Family Day is Feb. 21 and that means a holiday for many families in Rainy River District.

One way to enjoy the day is to come to the Emo-La Vallee Community Centre for an afternoon of free family fun from noon-4 p.m.

Highlights include a family skate from noon-2 p.m., followed by shinny hockey from 2-4 p.m. Helmets and gloves are mandatory.

Emo Legion set to hold fish fry

The Emo Legion will hold its annual January fish fry, also featuring mashed potatoes, wild rice casserole, baked beans, cole slaw, and dessert, this Saturday (Jan. 29).

Admission is $12 for adults and $5 for children six and under.

Take-out orders are available and orders also can be delivered.

Please pre-order by Friday afternoon or early on Saturday.

Shine named as top senior

Congratulations to Lois Shine, who was honoured as Senior of the Year during the annual Devlin/La Vallee Christmas dinner on Sunday (Dec. 12).

Although I don’t have all the details of the many things Lois does for both the Devlin community centre and Emo Legion, I do know she sells tickets by the hundreds and always has a cheery disposition.

Seniors set to enjoy annual ‘tour of lights’

The Emo-La Vallee-Chapple Health Communities Coalition once again will be hosting a “tour of lights” for seniors tomorrow (Dec. 2).

This is a free bus tour to view the Christmas lights around Emo.

Pick-up will be at the Golden Age Manor and Queen Street Manor at 6 p.m.

Coffee and hot chocolate then will be served at these locations after drop-off.

Remembrance Day services will be held across the district tomorrow (Nov. 11).
