The Emo and District Hospital Auxiliary will hold its annual fall tea, bazaar, bake sale, and white elephant table on Friday, Oct. 13 from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Emo Legion.
Admission is $3, with all proceeds going to the auxiliary’s project in the Emo Health Centre.
Be sure to bring a friend and come out to support the auxiliary and all its hard-working members.
In related news, the auxiliary would like to remind those who may need “assisting items” to help in their daily functions that the Emo Health Centre has a loan cupboard with wheelchairs, canes, crutches, toilet seat risers, walkers, and bath stools.
If you need to use any of these items, please ask at the health centre.
