Mini-royalty contest a go again

The 2018 Mini-King and Mini-Queen once again will be crowned here on Canada Day.

Registration is now open for this year's contest, which will take place on the “Fun in the Sun” stage at Point Park on the afternoon of July 1.

Organizer Melissa Gushulak noted the contest is open to boys and girls aged four-seven (as of July 1).

Logue named top senior

Beth Logue was presented with the Township of Alberton's annual “Senior of the Year” award at the town's municipal office last Wednesday evening.

The award was presented by Reeve Michael Hammond after he delivered a short speech in front of a few of Logue's family members, as well as other township residents, at the start of the Alberton council meeting.

'Relay' likely to be final one here

It looks like this year's “Relay for Life,” which is slated for this Saturday (June 23), will be the last one here.

Participation in the annual cancer fundraiser, which first started here in 2001, has declined over the years—not just locally but elsewhere, too.

Even so, organizers are holding it just one more time at a new location and in a briefer format.

Club's finances probed

The Emo and District Lions Club considers itself to be a club of transparency and integrity.

With that, we are deeply disappointed to inform our supporting community that after a preliminary investigation, we have discovered discrepancies with our finances.

Upon this discovery, legal counsel and action was sought immediately and the OPP have become involved.

More interest needed

Prospective candidates for the fall municipal and school board elections, as well as those who plan to be a third-party advertiser in the elections, are being urged to sign up for an information session tentatively slated for June 27 here.

But more people will have to sign up to make the session a “go.”
