‘Goal Diggers’ to host breast cancer fundraiser

Dave Ogilvie

Everyone is invited to join the Emo women’s hockey team, the “Goal Diggers,” at the “Score for Cancer” and “Walk for a Cure.”
The team is hosting a 5K walk, run, blade, or bike event to help find a cure for breast cancer.
They will be starting at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 3 in front of Rejuvenate Fitness in Emo. Please wear your favourite hockey jersey and join the team as they raise money for this worthy cause.
They are not asking for pledges but donations on the day of the race certainly would be welcome. Either bring your donation to the starting line on Oct. 3 or contact a team member.
Anyone wishing more information can call Erin at 482-3798.

The men who attended the monthly breakfast meeting this past Saturday (Sept. 18) at the Emo Legion were treated not only to another excellent meal, but also to an extremely interesting speaker.
Bert Unger, a former Rainy River High School teacher, recounted his experiences in the district and in southern Manitoba. His topic for the morning, “Leaving a Legacy,” left those in attendance with much to think about.
He challenged the men to spend five minutes a day meditating on the positive moments of their life, and also asked them to think about what their tombstone would say and how they would be remembered by people.
He concluded by saying it’s never too late to start doing things that will make the world a better place.

Another successful “Country Jam” was held at the Emo Legion on Friday (Sept. 17). The music lovers on hand had a great time listening and dancing to their old-time favourites.
The next “Jam” will take place on Friday, Oct. 8. Mark this date on your calendar and plan to participate in an entertaining evening.
In related news, long-time organizer and musician Charleen Gustafson unfortunately will be unable to attend the “Country Jams” this winter as she’s decided to accept a teaching position in northern Manitoba.
Although Charleen will be missed, others have taken over the job of making sure the music continues
Thanks once again to the Emo Legion for allowing the use of the hall and for cooking up some excellent snacks.
