Region says goodbye to two long-time residents

Two long time residents are relocating. June Benjamin moved to Fort Frances on October 1. She’s enjoying living in a home, near her kids and grandkids.

Yvonne Kellar will move November 1 to Flinder’s apartments.

Both ladies have been active people in the community for many years, volunteering to serve at funerals, the LaVallee Community Christmas Party, and anywhere they were needed.

Both shared with me, “It’s hard to move, we have many good memories of Devlin, but as live changes, we must too.”

The community will miss these ladies who made our community a better place to live. We wish you all the best in your new locations.

Congratulations to Jim and Brenda Marr who celebrated with a 50th anniversary party last weekend. A lovely party was enjoyed by 25 friends and family at the Emo Legion. The couple’s anniversary isn’t until December 16, but with sister Stracey and brother-in-law Roger visiting here from Edmonton, it made sense to celebrate this special occasion in October. The district sends you both much happiness in your future years together.

Sending happy 50th wedding anniversary wishes to Keith and Sadie Smith. Their anniversary was September 30, and family and friends gathered together on October 15 to celebrate this happy milestone. May you both enjoy many more years together.

A happy 65th birthday to Colleen Vennechenko on October 21. May you enjoy many more years of good health, friends and family!

Sending get well wishes for a speedy recovery to Keith Caul. Keith recently underwent shoulder surgery.

Sending get well wishes and prayers to Marilou Allan. Marilou has been in the hospital and will be there for a while.

The Emo Legion is having Bingo every Tuesday night, games start at 6 p.m

Carpet bowling is every Thursday starting at 9 a.m., followed by lunch.

Happy Halloween to all Trick or Treaters!
