The second-annual “Run for the Donut” is planned and ready to go.
Runners are advised to lace up their shoes and start preparing for the 5K race hosted by the Rainy Running Club, the Municipality of Emo, and the “Run for the Donut” committee.
You are invited to run or walk the scenic route at the Lions Park in Emo, then enjoy doughnuts and prizes at the finish line!
Registration forms are available at the Emo municipal office and the CIBC branch in Emo or by e-mailing emodonutrun@gmail.com
The entry fee is $10 (or $20 if you would like a commemorative T-shirt).
Those interested are asked to register by Oct. 12 if you would like a shirt to ensure you get your preferred size.
Then mark Saturday, Oct. 20 on your calendar and plan on participating in this year’s “Run for the Donut” (race time is 10 a.m.)
See you there!

The next “Country Jam” will take place this Friday (Sept. 21) at the Emo Legion, with the music starting around 7 p.m.
Admission is $2, which is used to help pay the bill for the lights and air conditioning.
If you love to dance, or just like sitting and listening to some old country tunes, then mark the date on the calendar, bring a friend, and plan on having a wonderful evening.
The bar will be open for adult refreshments and the kitchen staff probably will cook you up some snacks if you show up hungry.
