The Emo and District Lions' Club's grocery draw is back again this year.
First prize is $5,200, which is an amazing $100 a week for 52 weeks (a whole year of free groceries!)
Second prize is $500 worth of groceries and third prize is a $100 grocery coupon.
This year's added bonus is an early-bird draw for half of a home-grown beef—cut and wrapped to your specifications—that will be held on March 15.
Another half-beef bonus will be drawn during Spring Fever Days in Emo.
Get your tickets from Cloverleaf, from any Lions member, or at designated locations around the district.
Proceeds will go towards Lions' projects, including the completion of the observation deck at the west end of Emo, and to the Emo food bank.
Support the Emo and District Lions and purchase your chance on these fantastic prizes in the coming weeks. Tickets are only $10 each.
Just a reminder that the Emo and District Lions always are looking for new members. Please consider giving your time and talent to the largest volunteer organization in the world.
Make a difference in your community and in the lives of people all over the world.

The next “Country Jam” at the Emo Legion will take place Friday, Feb. 24.
If you enjoy old-time country music, want to just listen, or want to get up on the floor and dance, then be sure to mark this date on your calendar.
The musicians will begin playing around 7 p.m.
Admission is only $2, which helps the Legion pay for heat and lights.
The bar will be open for alcoholic on non-alcoholic drinks, and the staff in the kitchen may be available to cook up some snacks.
New musicians will be gladly welcomed.

The Emo Public Library staff is very pleased to announce the Rainy River Public Library has joined the Manitoba inter-library loan network.
Called fILL, the network allows us to share books, movies, and CDs with libraries across Manitoba. They are the first Ontario library to open a gateway to fILL.
You don't need to do anything new or different to request items through fILL. When you ask us for an interlibrary loan, our search will cover the fILL catalogue for you.
They look forward to working with their friends and neighbours in Manitoba!
