This month’s men’s breakfast meeting will take place this Saturday (Sept. 18) at the Emo Legion.
The breakfast buffet, which begins at 8 a.m., will feature guest speaker Bert Unger from Steinbach, Man.
Unger, while still living a very active and busy life, has spent many years working in the field of education, which included 12 years here in Rainy River District.
He was extremely instrumental in establishing the Christian Parents Association, and helping to found the Sturgeon Creek Alternation Program (SCAP) in our area.
Unger, who has travelled in many countries and worked among many different cultures, will be speaking on the topic, “Leaving a Legacy,” a subject which everyone tends to think about as our short life comes to a close.
Bring a friend, enjoy an excellent breakfast, and share in fellowship with men from across the district.

There will be a supper at 5:30 p.m., followed by a presentation by the Treadways of Kenora, who had the chance several years ago to participate in CBC’s “Pioneer Quest,” living for one year as you would have done in 1870s rural Manitoba.
They will share that experience with us.
There also will be very old-time music during the evening, as well as pioneer displays, photos, and documents from Chapple’s early settlement.
You even can try out for a prize by completing the “Chapple Obscure History Quiz.”
Cost for the evening is a main dish casserole from each household and $5 per person at the door. We will provide salad, dessert, bread, beverages, and entertainment.
The committee looks forward to seeing you that evening!
