Busy times are coming up ! The Emo Walleye Classic takes place this weekend.
Weigh-ins take place Friday at 4:30 p.m. and Saturday at 4 p.m. Weigh-ins are held at the Emo LaVallee Arena.
There will be penny tables, a variety of food available and as always the Guthrie United Church will have their delicious homemade pies and coffee for sale.
The Emo Legion will be having a fish fry on Friday evening. The cost is $18 for adults; kids six-12 years pay $10; children five and under eat free.
Then they will offer a prime rib supper on Saturday. The cost is $25.
Both meals will be served at the arena.

It is with great sadness I send sympathy to the family and friends of Jean Galusha Bragg.
Aunt Jean passed away last week at the Emo hospital. Jean spent her first years living in International Falls where her and her husband, Jack, raised two boys, Doug and Mike.
After Jack’s passing, Jean married Norbert Bragg and spend 21 years married and living in Devlin.
Aunt Jean was a fiesty, very “with it” lady. She loved football (and you dare not disturb her when she was watching her favourite Minnesota teams).
She was on top of all news, either government or local events. I’ll never forget her phone calls–she’d ask many questions and you could count on another phone call (immediately) with her mentioning, “Just one more thing . . .”
Aunt Jean suffered a stroke years ago and from that point on mobility was affected. But she always kept her wit and her love of life.
Many will miss her dearly; I know I sure will.
May you rest in peace, Aunt Jean, and thanks for the many smiles you brought to many.

Try to remember the greener grass across the fence may be due to a septic tank issue!
