Emo Fair a success for locals

The Rainy River Valley Agricultural Society’s 2012 fall fair in Emo was fun for all this year, however locals proved to be winners in several areas.

Kelvin Caul captured the “Champion Logger” title, Orville Smith took home the logger safety award, and Brent Keller earned the rookie logger award.

As well, Jamie Davis took the checkered flag both Friday and Saturday nights.
