Emo residents back home!

By Robin McCormick

Emo long-term residents returned home last week, on Sept 1. They had been moved to Rainycrest after an air conditioner problem in June forced the the Emo Long-Term Care to close.

Along with a new air conditioning unit being installed, updates were done. Residents will return to a freshly cleaned, polished and painted facility.

I’m sure all the staff as especially residence are happy to be back as we all know “there’s no place like home.”

As mentioned in my column last week the Emo Legion Branch #99 has resumed some of their events and this Friday (September 11) beer and burger for $5 takes place. This is a trial run, with only two dates scheduled so far – Sept. 11 and 25, starting at 5 p.m. Take out is available by calling 482-2250. Come out and enjoy a long awaited fun time.

Sympathy to the family and friends of John Esselink. John passed August 31. I’ve known John all my life. He was a kind, caring man.

I had the special opportunity of doing a Feature On Farming story with both John and his dear wife Linda. They are amazing people. John overcame many tragedies, especially during the war, but he never let obstacles get him down. His faith in God was abundant. And as the title of his book states and he truly believed and practiced it, “The Lord Has Been Good To Me”.

Sympathy to the family and friends of Marvel Bullied. She was a lady that loved her family immensely. She will be sadly missed by many.

Wishes for a speedy recovery to Sylvia Beadle. Sylvia underwent surgery a week ago. Our community of family and friends hope to see you back to your energetic self soon.

Our community welcomes Kevin and Shannon Kuchma and their children Ronan and Reece. They have purchased the home of Rod and Wendy Woodgate (Kevin’s sister).

Rod and Wendy will live at their cabin on Footprint and they have purchased a home in California for the winter months. May Rod and Wendy enjoy their homes as well as the Kuchmas.
