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).
