District W.I. museum open for season

The district W.I. museum in Emo held its opening back on Saturday, May 1 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
Quite a few W.I. ladies were on hand to assist in purchasing home-baked goodies and there was plenty to go around. There also were crafts, a yard sale, and a great lunch.
The opening attracted quite a few people from Devlin and Barwick, as well as a few from Fort Frances.
I had not been told of any new additions to the museum’s artifacts other than Marlin Carr’s donation of his U.S. Army uniform and few articles he had picked up in Iraq.
This display is quite interesting, and is accompanied by a story about his tour of duty in Iraq.
A Burriss W.I. member said they are not sure yet who they will hire as the museum curator and travel information officer for the summer.
