Minor hockey raffle coming up


The Emo-Devlin-Barwick Minor Hockey Association will be going door-to-door this Saturday (April 13) selling boat raffle tickets and collecting used books.

The boat was donated by Don and Tami Foster and Nestor Falls Marine as a fundraiser for the new Emo Express jerseys.

Tickets cost $5 each, with the draw to be made next Saturday (April 20) at the boat show in conjunction with “Spring Fever Days.”

The players and parents also will be asking for donations of used books for their book sale, which will be held at the Emo Arena during “Spring Fever Days.”.

Hats off to the Emo & District Lions Club for its third-annual “Farmers’ Night” held this past Saturday at the Barwick Community Centre.

More than 200 people attended, and a delicious roast beef and chicken dinner was enjoyed by all.

Roughly 200 prizes also were given out to those attending while Telford Advent entertained the crowd with his auctioneer ability.

There also was a 50/50 draw, penny table raffle, and much, much more.

It was easy to see that a lot of hard work went into this event, and most already are looking forward to next year’s event.

Robin’s 2¢:

I have bad luck with men.

A man I was dating told me on the phone, “I have to go. There’s a telemarketer on the other line.”
