‘Meals on Wheels’ still active in Emo


The “Meals on Wheels” program in Emo provides a service for those who are aged 60 and older to receive a nutritional and balanced meal once a day, Monday to Friday.

The meals are prepared at the Emo Health Centre and delivered to homes in Emo between 11:30 a.m. and noon.

Each customer specifies how many meals a week they want.

The meals cost $9 each, with payment made at the beginning of the next month when the “Meals on Wheels” co-ordinator comes to collect.

Receipts are given out at that time.

The program is not run by the government but by co-operation with the Emo Health Centre kitchen, from payments from customers, donations from people in our community, and local volunteers.

If you are interested in having meals delivered to your home, contact Karen Whatley at 482-1566.

“Coffee Break” will begin its new season next Wednesday (Sept. 19).

It is an interdenominational women’s Bible study group that meets each Wednesday morning at the Christian Reformed Church in Emo until May.

“Coffee Break” also provides a nursery and the “Little Lambs” program (ages three-five) for the babies and small children of the moms who attend.

They will be starting their season with a welcome breakfast from 9:15-10 a.m.

Then at 10 a.m. there will be the welcome/announcements, followed by an introduction to the Bible study, “Giving God Your All” (which will begin on Sept. 26).

There also will be singing, games, and social time.

All ladies are welcome and encouraged to bring a friend!

The next meeting of the Men’s Breakfast Club will take place this Saturday (Sept. 15) at 8 a.m. at the Emo Legion.

The guest speaker this month will be Rudy French of Rainy River.

French is no stranger to our area. Over the years, he has spent much time in the tourism industry.

His heart for making the Gospel known to people has led him to a variety of ministries. He has spent time in disaster relief in the southern U.S.

French and his wife also have been very active in outreach and evangelism in the Philippines and South Korea.

Come, be blessed, and encouraged as you hear of God’s work in our world today!
