WE'RE BACK !

ARVA, ON - July 6, 2005

      The CATOWA COMMUNICATOR is now back on-line after an absence of several months.  My apologies for not getting an issue out during the winter months.  Now that the new season is upon us, I am looking forward to bringing forth news as it happens rather than waiting to publish articles quarterly.

       If anyone has an article or interesting photo that they would like to contribute, it would be appreciated.  Just mail or e-mail it to me at the address shown on the bottom right of this page.

EMBRO, ON - July 1, 2005

Almost 112 years after five Zorra farmers cemented their place in history, the tug of war championship continues to be the staple of the Embro Highland Games.
The story of those farmers has become legend since their win in the world championships on Aug. 3, 1893, when they defeated their old rivals from Chicago.
