Emo’s Spring Fever Days are fast approaching, and with that comes the end of Emo’s first “Biggest Loser” contest. Who will be crowned the biggest loser?
Whoever wins this title actually is the biggest winner because, after all is said and done, they have become more fit and have a healthier life ahead of them.
Will Emo host another such contest? If you’d like to take part, or continue on in it, then contact Colleen at 482-1811 and let them know you’d like to get into shape!

The Emo playground committee is selling Ester chocolates as a fundraiser again this year. So if you are planning to get the kids something sweet, why not help support this group and help enhance the park at the same time.

The Emo Walleye Classic may still be two months away but volunteers are needed now! Without the people who give their time to help out, this annual tournament would not be the success it has grown to be.
Now in its fourth year, the EWC is filled to a maximum of 60 teams for the first time. A waiting list has been formed.
For anyone who wants to volunteer, pick up your phone and call Marlene McQuaker at 482-1247, or drop by The Village Variety and leave your name and number.
