Pioneer Museum luncheon planned


The Rainy River District Women’s Institute is hosting a “Pioneer Museum” fall luncheon this Friday (Oct. 24) from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at Knox United Church in Emo.

The luncheon will include soup, sandwiches, and pie, as well as bake and craft tables.

Proceeds will help with the drive to build a new W.I. Museum in Emo.

A reminder that the weekly games of “500” will be played at the Devlin Hall at 7 p.m.

The cost is $5, which includes a lunch.

I’d also like to remind Devlin parents and grandparents that Devlin T.O.P.S. again this year will be choosing two Grade 8 students from Crossroads School to receive community involvement awards.

To be eligible, students must be physically active and show an interest in their community by volunteering or helping others.

If your child or grandchild exhibits these qualities, contact Trudy Badiuk, Patti McDowall, or Freeda Carmody.

Wedding congratulations go out to Leisa Hughes and Les Junkala, who were married Oct. 20 in Fort Frances.

Leisa is the daughter of Joan Hughes and the late Lewis Hughes.

A wonderful wedding and reception was held, with family and friends enjoying the day with the happy couple.

Sympathy to Jim Carmody and family on the passing of his twin brother, John, who lives in British Columbia.

Sympathy, as well, to the family of Shirley Bell.

I had the opportunity to spend some time with Shirley. She was a kind and caring person who made the world a better place.

Your community hopes you’re feeling better.

Robin’s 2¢:

During one particularly lengthy service, a fellow in the third row got up and started towards the door.

“Brother John, where are you going?” asked the preacher.

“I’m going to get a haircut,” the man replied.

“Why didn’t you get one before you came?” the minister persisted.

“When I came, I didn’t need one.”
