Seniors' carpet bowling is back up and running Thursdays at the Emo Legion.
The Legion also could use some volunteers who would love to get on a rotation, or help on occasion with cooking and serving the meal.
A reminder that Friday is “Beer and Burger Night” in the clubroom starting at 5 p.m.
Again, the Legion could use some volunteers who would like to help out in the kitchen cooking the burgers, running the deep fryer, or serving the orders.
They would like to have three workers each Friday night.
