At the recent Emo & Rural Wheels to Meals carpet bowling tournament, Adelia Guba, on behalf of the Royal Canadian Legion Br. #99 in Emo, presented Mollie Crozier with a cheque for $247, which will go towards the purchase of a new bowling carpet for the league.
The money was raised from a recent 50/50 Legion draw.

The Emo & District Hospital Auxiliary had a good turnout at its recent Shamrock tea and bake sale last week. The weather was grand and there was lots of baking, which went quickly.
Two draws were made by Chris Hartry and Cis McComb. The first, for a shamrock plant and a shamrock dish with golden money, was won by Hank Abma while the second (a shamrock vase) was won by Mary Jordens, both residents of the Golden Age Manor.
A huge thank you goes out to all the workers, as well as the visitors and donors who supported this worthwhile event.
The auxiliary’s next big event is the annual Strawberry Social in June.
As well, the auxiliary has a draw on a crib-size quilt and a kitchen basket. Tickets are available at the hospital cafeteria.

The St. Patrick’s Day Dinner, which was held Saturday at the Emo Legion, was a huge success.
The “Clover Valley Echoes,” consisting of Tom Gustafson (bass), Charlene Gustafson (guitar), Emily Smith (accordion), and Bob Brown (harmonica), entertained a group of more than 80 people from across the district.
Their enthusiastic playing encouraged a few members of the audience to take to the dance floor.
A penny table and a few draws also were part of the evening’s festivities, which were co-sponsored by the Women’s Institute and the Friends of the Emo Library.
