The Emo spray park project only has $15,000 to go!
The committee is getting ready to begin construction this spring, but there is still time to support this worthwhile project by purchasing a 4”x8” memorial brick for $100 or an 8”x8” one for $300.
Brick order forms are available at www.emospraypark.ca or from the Emo municipal office. A tax deductible donation to support the construction of the park will be issued by the office.
If you would like to make a donation, contact Lincoln Dunn at 482-1548. Together we can make the vision of a spray park a reality this summer!

The Emo municipal office still has copies of “Your Emergency Preparedness Guide,” which have been supplied free of charge by Public Safety Canada for each household and apartment within the Township of Emo.
According to the government, you should be prepared to take care of yourself and your family for a minimum of 72 hours. If a disaster happens in our community, it may take emergency workers some time to get to you as they help those in desperate need.
By taking a few simple steps today, you can become better prepared to face a range of emergencies–anytime, anywhere.
You can use this guide to create your own emergency plan, as well as use the checklists to build a 72-hour emergency kit. These basic steps will help you to take care of yourself and your loved ones during an emergency.
Please drop in at the office and pick up a copy.
