The cost of $4 goes to support the Emo food bank and thrift shop, as well as the church's outreach projects.

All are welcome to attend!


The Emo and District Hospital Auxiliary's annual “Shamrock Tea & Bake Sale” will take place Friday, March 17 starting at 1:30 p.m. at the Emo Health Centre cafeteria.

Admission is $3.

This year's “World Day of Prayer” goes this Friday (March 3) starting at 1:30 p.m. at the Christian Reformed Church in Emo.

The theme for this year—“Am I Being Unfair to You?”—was prepared by a group in the Philippines.

Everyone is welcome to attend.

A similar service also will be held at the Church of the Holy Spirit in Fort Frances (824 Victoria Ave.) starting at 2 p.m.

The International World Day of Prayer began in 1922 and is celebrated around the world on the first Friday of March each year.


The Emo and District Lions' Club's grocery draw is back again this year, with first prize being $5,200.

That's an amazing $100 a week for 52 weeks—a whole year of free groceries!

Second prize is $500 worth of groceries while 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, which will be made on March 15.

Another half-beef bonus will be drawn during “Spring Fever Days” next month.

Tickets cost $10 each, which are available at Cloverleaf, from any Lions' member, or at designated locations around the district.

Monies raised 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!

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.
