June Events

June 30: Why You Should Have a Will
Do you have a will? Does it need updating? Emily United Methodist Church is sponsoring a free Wills Workshop for area residents on Tuesday, June 30, 4:00- 5:30 PM. The public is invited.

The workshop will cover these topics: why a will is important; what to cover in your will; how you can have a will prepared. Led by Wills Awareness Consultant, Val Walker, of The Minnesota United Methodist Foundation, the workshop is offered as a community education service. There will be no solicitation.

Why should you have a will? A will is a valuable life statement for you, your family and others. A will brings order and direction to the distributions of your assets. A will protects children and other dependents. It may prevent family anxiety and conflict. By your will you direct the transfer of your personal goods and possessions. A will can also provide for charitable gifts.

The church is located at Hwy 6 and Co. Rd 1 across from the Emily US Post Office. Please address any inquiries to Frank Smith (218-763-2133) or Dan Klement (djklement@means.net or 218-566-2220).

July Events

July: Red Cross urges blood donations to maintain summer blood supply
The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to give blood in the weeks surrounding Independence Day to help ensure a sufficient blood supply now and throughout the summer.

Many summer activities, such as vacations and travel, cause frequent blood donors to be less available to give during the summer. However, hospital patients still depend on volunteer donors to receive lifesaving transfusions – the need for blood does not get a vacation.

To encourage more people to donate around Independence Day, all those who come out to donate blood July 2-6, 2015, will receive a Red Cross embroidered hat, while supplies last.

Eligible donors are encouraged to choose their day to make a difference. Donors of all blood types – especially those with types O negative, A negative and B negative – are needed. To make an appointment to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

About the American Red Cross
The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches skills that save lives; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families.

July 10: “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown” Opens in Pequot Lakes
The recognizable to comic strip fans Peanuts characters: Charlie Brown, Lucy Van Pelt, Snoopy, Linus Van Pelt, Schroeder and Sally Brown share an event filled day with you in the production of You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown. The cast of young adult actors will lead you through their character’s day with music, dance and action.

The eager, ever hopeful, everybody’s good friend Charlie Brown tries to do many things but generally fails in his endeavors. Bossy Lucy is judgmental and imagines that she is a great beauty. Underneath everything Lucy is really a good friend to Charlie Brown. Snoopy the smart, sophisticated beagle is obsessed with the Red Baron and with his supper dish. Linus Van Pelt is Lucy’s little brother. Linus is naïve, impressionable and carries as his constant companion a blanket. Schroeder is an intellectual and classical musician. Schroeder is Lucy’s reluctant love object. Sally Brown is Charlie Brown’s feisty, sassy little sister. Together this group of friends is a familiar cast of characters that will share with you a joyous, family-friendly eventful day in the performances of You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown.

The show is a very busy event filled day for the Charlie Brown and friends. The action includes a baseball game, a book report, a rehearsal of the Glee Club, supper time, the flying of a kite and time for analysis by the Doctor (Lucy). Musical selections include Snoopy’s razz a ma tazz rendition of “Suppertime”, along with songs about “The Kite” and "The Doctor Is In”.

Call 218 – 568-9200 to reserve your tickets for one of the six performances of You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown.
