The next men’s fellowship breakfast will be held this Saturday (March 17) at 8 a.m. at the Emo Legion.
Come for delicious breakfast and enjoy fellowship with old and new friends.
This month’s guest speaker will be Arvid Loewen, a 61-year-old grandfather, ultra-marathon cyclist, and a man with a mission.
Men and boys of all ages are welcome, with the cost being $12/person.
For more information, call Larry at 482-3104.

A “Community Sunrise Service” is planned for Easter Sunday (April 1) at 7 a.m. on Front Street in Emo.
A complimentary breakfast will follow at 8 a.m. at the Emo Legion, sponsored by local businesses.
In case of inclement weather, the service also will be held at the Legion.

The Cloverbelt Local Food Co-op and La Place Rendez-Vous cordially invite you to a “Farm to Fork” event–the first such event to be held in Rainy River District!
Please note the correct time for the event is 5-7 p.m. (not 7-9 p.m. as was written on a twitter post sent March 10 from Cloverbelt). 
Please call the Rendez-Vous (274-9811) to reserve your spot as seating is limited.
“Farm to Fork” events are a great way to showcase the superb products produced by our local producers, and at the same time focus your attention on the great talent of a local chef and the commitment of a local business like La Place Rendez-Vous to buying local in support of local producers and our local economy.
Help make this win-win relationship a success!
The Cloverbelt Local Food Co-op recognizes that the residents of Rainy River District support buying local. In fact, it is your commitment that makes the “Go Local” program a continued resounding success.
