Our rural area is a flurry of activities these days—a sure sign that the Christmas season has arrived!
The annual “Holly Daze” festivities take place Nov. 30-Dec. 1 in Emo.
The parade will be held on the Friday at 6 p.m., with hot chocolate and fireworks afterwards.

Meanwhile, the annual “Stuff-a-Cruiser” event will be held on Saturday, Dec. 8 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at various locations around the district, including Cloverleaf Grocery in Emo.
All donations stay in our area and assist local people.
