The Emo Fair wrapped up Saturday, as always it was full of fun events, rides, great food and a lot of reconnecting with folks you only see at the fair.
The Mini King/ Queen contest held last Thursday evening saw Anneliese DeGagne and Breckman Mann being the 2019 royalty.
Eleven young people competed (six girls and five boys). Every competitor received a gift card sponsored by the Emo Legion.
Congratulations to the queen and king and thanks to all the youth competing.
The four-hour loggers’ contest drew 10 competitors. This year, there were four rookies which is the largest number ever competing at one event.
After much skill, sweat and muscle power the champion logger was Jason Caul, safety logger was Kelvin Caul and rookie was Darwin Layne.
Congratulations to all the winners, and the other eight competitors.
There were eight youth that competed in three different competitions at the loggers’ contest
Hope to see everyone back next year, and a huge thanks to all volunteers, judges and the generous donations from local business.
Couldn’t do this event without these people.

This 2¢ is for all the mothers dreading back-to-school lunches.
I like to send little notes in my kids’ lunch boxes. Like, “Sorry the crackers are stale. That’s what happens when you leave the box open!”
