Omemee Trick-or-Treating Safety Tips!Omemee Mums Facebook group hot topic of discussion is where to take children trick-or-treating in Omemee.
There are three main schools of thought on this:
- Visit subdivisions where house are closer together to get more candy with less walking. Unfortunately, this heavy traffic will yield mostly lollipops, because the total cost is so high.
- Go to less populated areas where they have fewer visitors and give out larger treats. This can result in extra gas costs, or very tired feet.
- Only visit homes of people you know. This can be tricky when you're new in an area.
Whichever choice you make, Ontario Minister of Transportation, Steven Del Duca, offers some timely tips to keep your family safe on Halloween.

Omemee, Bethany and Dunsford Libraries Bring Ontario Library Fine Relief!
Last week we received an email highlighting Ontario Library Week events. There were many mentions of special happenings in Kawartha Lakes Library branches located in Lindsay, Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon Including a Food for Fines partnership happening at Bobcaygeon Public Library.
Frankly, it was a rather disappointing email, so a reply was sent to Kawartha Lakes Library saying that for our rural branches it seemed as though it was business as usual and asking if the Food for Fines would at least be extended to our rural branches.
It is good to see now, that there are a few items that will include our rural libraries, especially the Food for Fines, which allows people with library fines to exchange food bank donations for their fines.
How does the Food for Fines work?
What was in the first press release?>
What other freebies will you find at rural libraries this week?

Sandwich Artist : Your Ideal Omemee Job?Omemee job openings are few and far between, though at the turn of the century there were many jobs available.
Did you know Omemee was once a day's journey from Peterborough?
Omemee was a bustling town with hotels, a furniture store, bakery, feed mill, and many other businesses.
With the increased price of gas, and the short range of electric motors, could Omemee once more become a thriving community where travellers stop for the night between Peterborough and Lindsay, or at least a 5 hour charging stop?
That possibility is one being explored by one Omemee forward thinker on the Omemee Omprovement Group Facebook Page.
However, that is a future possibility.
Today's jobs are few and far between.
