The route once again will go from the curling rink to the checkpoint at Tom Judson’s gate and back. Refreshments will be available afterwards for the participants.
For every $50 raised in pledges, you will have the opportunity to enter your name in a draw for a bike donated by Tompkins Hardware.
Pledge sheets are available at various local businesses.

Sea Cadets chairman Ann Edwards tells me the group will be having its annual inspection Tuesday, May 28 at Emo-La Vallee Community Centre. This gives the Cadets the chance to demonstrate to the public the life skills and drills they’ve learned.
The agenda also will include stories of trips Cadets had taken during the year.
In related news, the cadets ran a penny table during Spring Fever Days in Emo last weekend, with proceeds to go towards program activities.

We have a new co-ordinator at the Emo Toy Library in Joan McGibbon.
I understand the former co-ordinator, Josette Vargas, is working in the teacher’s aide program. Josette was with ETL for about six years before deciding to venture into other opportunities.
The Stratton Toy Library also has a new co-ordinator, whom I still have to meet.
