Erskine School commemorates war effort with Thursday service

It’s not about the poppy, but the poppy helps guide us in the remembrance of those who fought and died for our country.

It’s not about the poppy, but the poppy helps guide us in the remembrance of those who fought and died for our country.

Slowly, as the years tick by, we have lost all our First World War veterans who participated in our armed services and now those who fought in the Second World War.

I thank those past and present who still stand for our country. These soldiers fought for freedom in other countries so the war wouldn’t be taken to our own country.

The worst kind of war would be the war within our own country, where one neighbour would fight against another neighbour.

So when I see the poppy, I feel gratitude and proud that our country still remembers.

Erskine School will hold its Remembrance Day service on Thursday at 1:30 p.m.

The school is also doing picture retakes Thursday, first thing in the morning.

Friday is Wear Red Day at Erskine School.

CARA volleyball starts Friday and carries forward to Saturday. This weekend’s tournament will take place in Stettler.

Birthday wishes go out to Sheri Morbeck on Nov. 14.

Happy anniversary to Mel and Pat Kelm.
