Congratulations are in order!

There are three congratulations to be extended this week.
First to Melinda Teeple and Colin Romyn, who were married Saturday (Sept. 18). They had a beautiful wedding ceremony, followed by a delicious supper and fun-filled reception.
The second congratulations goes out to Rachel (Jewell) and Jodie Sylvester, who were married Aug. 28 in western Canada.
There will be a wedding reception in their honour this Saturday (Sept. 25) at the Emo Legion beginning at 8 p.m. Family and friends are invited to come out and celebrate with the newlyweds!
This event is cash bar, and a midnight lunch will be served.
The third congratulations goes to Jamie Booth and Siobham Devlin, who recently were engaged.
Best of wishes to the three happy couples from your community!

A reminder that Crossroads is hosting two important events in the near future—the first being a chess tournament slated for Sept. 30.
Invitations have been sent out to all the district schools and replies are coming back.
As well, the district cross-country run is coming up Wednesday, Oct. 6 at Crossroads.
Volunteers are needed for both events to help in the canteen. Call the school at 486-3329 if you can lend a hand.

Be sure to mark your calendar for the annual Harvest Supper to be held Oct. 3 from 5-7 p.m. at the Devlin Hall. This is always a great way to spend a Sunday evening.
Hundreds of folks from all over the district fill the hall and the food is always delicious—proof the ladies from the U.C.W. and our community sure know how to cook.
The cost is $10 for adults, $5 for kids aged six-12, and free for those five and under.
