Enter your child in mini-royalty competition

The annual Rainy River Valley Agricultural Society’s fall fair is coming soon, and with that comes the crowning of the 2016 queen and mini-king and queen.
This crowd-pleasing event takes place Thursday, Aug. 18 upstairs of the Emo LaVallee arena.
If you wish to register your son or daughter for the mini-king or queen contest call Mary Croswell at 482-1105.
Be sure to take in the fair as there is always something for everyone, and your sure to do some visiting with folks you may only see once a year.
The Emo Legion will host beer gardens during the fair. They will be held upstairs at the arena.

Diane Bonot was the lucky winner of the July 50/50 draw at the Emo Legion. She pocketed $1,015.
Adelia Guba sold the winning ticket with her winnings being $115.55.
