If you have your tickets, don’t forget to attend the Chapple Heritage and Rainy River District Women’s Institute’s “Queen’s Jubilee Dinner,” which will be held this Saturday (May 12) at 5:30 p.m. at the Barwick Hall.
There will be a penny table, silent auction, and door prize, with music provided by “Country Jam.”
Bring “Mum” out that evening for her Mother’s Day dinner and be sure to brush up on your Elizabeth II trivia.
And ladies, if so inspired, wear your best Queen Elizabeth II hat.

The Emo-La Vallee-Chapple Healthy Communities Coalition still is looking for volunteers to help weed, water, and till the community garden in Emo beginning in mid-June.
When the vegetables are ready, the garden will be available for everyone to access.
The community garden—located on Highway 11 beside Tompkins Road—only can be a success with your help!
If you would like to volunteer to help care for the garden, call Siobhan Booth at 482-2211 ext. 222.
