Our community expresses its sympathy to Ted and Helen Tompkins and families on the passing of their daughter, Cindy Jewett, on Nov. 18 in Thunder Bay.
A memorial service was held at the Moose Hall last Friday. In lieu of flowers, in memoriam donations may be made to St. Joseph’s Care Group.
I talked with Helen this past week and the family going through this difficult time. I also understand Ted had a stroke to complicate things, and will be having tests taken.

On Friday morning while making my rounds through Emo, I noticed Don Anness exercising his horses around the lagoon area. It is solid on top with the horses having a solid footing.

Rob Braum from Princeton, Mn. was the guest speaker at both worship services Sunday at the Christian Reformed Church in Emo. His topics were based along Christmas themes.
Also during the morning service, the Sunday School children, led by different ladies of the worship committee, performed two selections, “I Wwant to Walk as a Child of the Light” and “Light One Candle” (which coincided with the lighting of the first Advent candle).

The annual seniors supper at the Emo Legion on Sunday was another huge success, with 160 on hand and another 52 meals delivered! “It is getting bigger and better,” noted the organizers.
Elaine Frazer opened with Grace, after which Joyce Meyers, president of the Emo Agricultural Society, led the fair queen candidates in serving the meal.
The kitchen help was fantastic and must be thanked for the precise way things went off.
Preparations for the supper started early in the week, and the ladies had to scramble Saturday to make sure the important preparations were in order since Hydro One decided to have a power outage Sunday from 9 a.m. until noon.
But there were no problems and the occasion went on as if nothing had happened.
Everyone present received a gift courtesy of the local business sector, plus there was four door prizes given away this year. To anyone having had a part in the seniors’ supper, a big thank you.
