‘Country Jam’ musicians playing New Year’s Eve

Dave Ogilvie

The “Country Jam” sessions have been so well-attended by people from across the district, and beyond, that the musicians are planning to perform at a New Year’s Eve dance at the Emo Legion.
The music will play from 7-10:30 p.m., with admission being $5.
If you enjoy old-time country music, like to dance, or want to celebrate New Year’s Eve but would like to get home at a decent hour, then this year’s dance at the Legion is the place to be.
Watch for further information as it’s posted around town.

This month’s featured speaker at the “Men’s Breakfast” was Pastor Bryan Dick from the Christian Reformed Church here in Emo.
Pastor Bryan and his wife, Stephanie, arrived here two months ago. But having just completed his three-month pastoral assignment, the couple is planning to leave soon.
The men who attended Saturday’s breakfast at the Emo Legion were challenged by an inspiring message from Pastor Dick.
The breakfast meetings will continue on the third Saturday of each month in the coming year. Be sure to mark Jan. 15 on your calendar and plan to attend.
All men are welcome!

With the annual “Polar Plunge” in Fort Frances just over a week away, the Emo and District Lions Club is hoping residents of the central area will help sponsor this fundraising effort.
Members also will be meeting with local councils to discuss how the new Lions club can assist in planning and promoting local projects for communities in our area.
The club is committed to actively participating in the projects and also will raise funds to help with their completion.
They can’t reach this goal without support from the community so if you can, please sponsor Kent Ogden for the “Polar Plunge” on New Year’s Day by pledging and donating at Cloverleaf Store in Emo or Dennis Ogilvie by calling 482-2540.
In related news, the Emo & District Lions are looking for new members.
If you think you would like to join or would like more information, the club meets on the first Monday of every month at Northridge Funeral Home.
