Dance Hall renovations making a difference; tickets on sale now

The renovations taking place at the Dance Hall are making a huge difference. The roof is complete, the building is now nice and square, the waters running and new doors and windows make the building a wonderful site. Especially for all the dedicated volunteers and organizers of this project.

The winner of the basket from the Emo fair booth was Julie Cavers from southern Ontario.

Robin’s 2 cents

For 20 years a wife had been complaining to her husband about not putting the cap on the toothpaste. It was their anniversary so the husband decided to change this bad habit and make his wife happy. For a week he was diligent, always capping the toothpaste. He was expecting his wife to thank him but she never did. Finally one day while they were eating supper she turned to him and said, “Why have you stopped brushing your teeth?”
