Firefighters able to extinguish blaze

Back on Jan. 17, volunteer firefighters from La Vallee and Emo responded to a blaze on Wasaw Road in which a chimney fire at a residence spread to the attic.
Fortunately, it was extinguished quickly using a transitional attack using dry chemicals.
Fire Chief Josh Collins was grateful for all the volunteers that responded and the efficient way the fire was put out.
Hats off to all our volunteer firefighters!

A reminder that the Emo Legion’s monthly 50/50 draw goes this Friday (Feb. 1) at 7 p.m.

Congratulations to Meagan Beacham and Rick Thomas on the birth of their son, Lucas Wayne, who arrived on Saturday (Jan. 26) weighing two pounds, 10 oz.
Although he had some struggles, he is doing well. Lucas is in the NICU at St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg.
Grandparents are Stacy Beacham and the late Wayne Beacham, with Sylvia Beadle being the proud great-great-grandmother.

“Whatcha doin’ today?” a wife asked.
“Nothin’,” the husband replied.
“You did that yesterday,” the wife said.
“I wasn’t finished!” he retorted.
