There also will be some mystery entertainment so be sure to come out and enjoy an evening with friends!

The Emo and District Lions Club will be holding its annual “Hunters Night,” featuring a wild meat and fish dinner, on Saturday, Nov. 10 at the Barwick Hall.
There still may be a few tickets left, which are available from Lion Club members, at businesses across the district, or by contacting Kent Ogden (276-1946) or Joanne Ogden (271-0931).

On Nov. 11, we observe a moment of silence to honour the courage, valour, and sacrifice of the heroes who have served–and continue to serve–Canada during times of war and conflict.
Please take the time to attend a service of remembrance at a cenotaph in your community.

The third-annual “Christmas Market” will take place at the Copper River Inn in Fort Frances on Friday, Nov. 23 from 5-9 p.m. and again on Saturday, Nov. 24 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
There will be more than 30 tables to shop at and there’s bound to be something for everyone!
Admission is free but the organizers would love for you to bring along a non-perishable food item to be donated to the food bank. For those who do bring a donation, you will be entered in an hourly draw for a cash voucher to be spent at any one of the booths.
Come out and support the local artisans and find a Christmas present for that special someone!
