Lots for kids to do in Emo

Dave Ogilvie

Attention kids in the Emo area!
The recreation committee once again is offering a wide variety of daytime activities weekdays from 2-4 p.m. for ages four and up.
On Mondays, youngsters are invited to take part in a soccer program at the Emo Sports Field. On Tuesdays, on the same field, the summer program workers will be introducing golf and other games.
The program moves to the Emo Spray Park/Lions Park down by the river on Wednesdays.
Thursdays offer some volleyball back at the Sports Field while Fridays feature tennis and badminton at the tennis court.
The rec committee also has organized some evening activities for the whole family.
On Tuesdays, for instance, they will be holding roller or boot hockey sessions (everyone must have a helmet and other protective equipment, and children under age eight must be accompanied by an adult).
There will be family baseball Wednesday evenings at the Sports Field (if it’s raining, there will be floor hockey at the Emo Arena).
Finally, on Thursdays, everyone is invited out to enjoy some family roller-blading (once again, a helmet and protective equipment is required and children under eight must be accompanied by an adult).
All of these activities cost only $2.25/person per day. Drop-ins are welcome.

Although there were slightly fewer musicians than normal, July’s “Country Jam” at the Emo Legion on Friday night was deemed successful by everyone on hand.
A large group of “old-time country” enthusiasts enjoyed the music and danced the night away.
On hand once again were the youngest members of the entertainers. Guitarists Kirsten Armstrong, Madison Brown, and her sister, Katelyn Brown, delighted and entertained the crowd by playing and singing some of their favourite country selections.
For information about August’s “Country Jam,” which will take place during the Emo fall fair Aug. 16-18, watch for announcements around town and in the paper.
