Christmas events in works

December will be upon us soon and with that comes many annual Christmas events, beginning with Emo’s always-enjoyable “Holly Daze” festivities.
The Santa Claus parade takes place on the evening of Dec. 6.
The Emo Legion, meanwhile, will host its “Crafts Galore” on Friday, Dec. 6 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and again Saturday, Dec. 7 from 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
The tables have been sold out, which means there will be crafts and goodies of all types.
The event also will feature a soup-and-sandwich luncheon both days.
Members also are asked to donate items, as soon as possible, to the Legion’s penny table during “Crafts Galore.”
Here in Devlin, the annual community Christmas party will take place Sunday, Dec. 15.
The day consists of socializing in the afternoon, followed by a potluck supper and a visit from Santa to top off the evening.
More information to come.
Finally, the annual Christmas concert at Crossroads School is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 17 from 7-8:30 p.m.
Be sure to mark all three of these events on your calendar!

Ken Brandrick was honoured with an 80th birthday party on Sunday (Nov. 17) at the Devlin Hall.
An enjoyable evening took place with pictures, a video, snacks, and, of course, birthday cake to celebrate this special occasion.
“Uncle Ken” is an example of an active man who enjoys life to its fullest—right up to riding his motorcycle!
