The Emo and District Lions Club once again is holding its “Lions Share” grocery raffle.

First prize is $100/week for a year or, in other words, $5,200 worth of groceries. Second prize is $500 in groceries while third prize is $100 in groceries.

Tickets, which cost $10 each, are being sold at Cloverleaf Grocery, Emo Feed, the Hair & Body Care Shoppe, and Tompkins Home Hardware in Emo, as well as at Walmart in Fort Frances.

They also can be purchased from any member of the Lions Club.

Proceeds will go to the Emo food bank and other club projects. Its latest project is helping the municipal council in Devlin with the new playground at the Ball Diamond along the highway.

Help these Lions make our communities better places to live by purchasing a raffle(s) ticket. You just might win some groceries but you also will help the Lions and our communities.

And if you would like to join the club, the Emo and District Lions always are looking for new members who want to contribute to life in our districts and to those in need around the world.

One of the world-wide projects of the Lions is to find better treatment and a cure for diabetes. The growing diabetes epidemic is nothing short of staggering.

According to the International Diabetes Federation, the number of adults living with the disease is expected to reach 629 million by the year 2045.

In the face of such a powerful challenge to global health and well-being, what difference can one person possibly make? Well, every journey begins with a single step.

Serving in diverse communities all over the world, more than 1.4 million Lions and Leos now have a unique chance to change the fight against diabetes—one act of kindness at a time.
