We might live in small communities but there’s always a lot of events to keep us busy.
On May 23-25 is the annual Emo Walleye Classic. The weigh-ins are Friday, May 24 at 4:30 p.m. and Saturday, May 25 at 4 p.m.
The Emo Legion will provide a fish fry supper on the Friday evening. The cost is $18 for adults, six-12 years pay $10 and five and under eat free.
On Saturday, the Emo Legion will serve a prime rib dinner. The cost is adults $25. Both meals will be served from 5-7 p.m.
The Guthrie United Church will once again be selling their delicious homemade pies with coffee. This will be held daily during the Emo Walleye Classic.
There will be other foods available during the weekend including a chop truck.
A penny table, information booth and much more make up this ever popular event.

Crossroads school held its annual speech contest Thursday ( May 9th).
After several students competed, the first-place winner was Monica Empey (Eating Bugs). The second-place winner was Calleigh Councillor (Puppy Mills) while third place went to Caleb Harrison (Benefits of Sports).
Congratulations to these three students and to every student that wrote and presented a speech.

The play “Footloose,” presented by the Fort Frances High School students last Wednesday through Saturday, was a true delight to watch.
I saw many students from our rural areas taking part in this event.
Hats off to all students, teachers, musicians and volunteers that “once again” put on a great musical.

Wish we could crossbreed the mosquitoes and the lightning bugs.
At least then we would see them coming.
