Duo to entertain seniors

The “Wheels to Meals” program has 17 in attendance last Thursday at the Emo Legion. Those on hand played carpet bowling, then enjoyed a great luncheon.
Tomorrow (June 3), the duo of Glen Hart and Ramona Smith will entertain the seniors with their favourite musical selections they enjoy to hear from time to time.
It’s expected to be a great afternoon.

Adelia Guba motored to International Falls on Friday to attend the graduation of our 15th grandchild, Christopher Guba, from senior kindergarten to Grade One (the Class of 2016).
Christopher was born prematurely and had to struggle in the early going at Bismark Memorial Hospital, where he fought the odds and won. Today, he is a cheerful youngster who enjoys school, fishing, games, and even helps Dad with work around the yard.

A retirement celebration for Our Lady of the Way teachers Janice Lee and Linda Budreau is set for Saturday, June 14. For more information, contact Sue Vandenbrand (483-1097) or Laura at OLOW (483-5477).
Being around OLOW to cover stories, I’ve gotten to know the teachers there quite well, each dedicated to their work with children. They’ll be missed, as have others who have gone before them and are now enjoying retirement to its fullest.
One day I met up with Mark Hyatt heading out to his farm with wife, Carol. Mark was a former principal at OLOW.
