On Remembrance Day this Saturday (Nov. 11), communities across the district will pay tribute to those who gave their lives in war.
I encourage all who are able to come out and remember those who allow us to live with the freedom we do today.
The Royal Canadian Legion Br. #99 in Emo first will hold a service there at 10 a.m.
Then cenotaph ceremonies will follow in Devlin (11 a.m.), Emo (11:45 a.m.), Rainy River First Nations (1:30 p.m.), Barwick (2 p.m.), and Stratton (2:30 p.m.)
There also will be a free-will luncheon at the Emo Legion starting at 12:30 p.m.
The annual Remembrance Day dinner will follow at 5 p.m. at the Emo Legion.
The cost is $13 for adults and $7 for kids 10 and under.
Everyone is welcome to attend!

A sure sign that Old Man Winter is here, and Christmas is right around the corner, is the annual “Holly Daze” celebration in Emo.
This two-day event takes place Dec. 1-2 this year, with the annual parade set for the Friday evening.
Be sure to attend and make it a family-friendly event.
The Emo Legion also will host its annual soup/sandwich luncheon both days while local merchants are sure to have an abundance of merchandise, gift ideas, and great prices!
