ERSKINE ENQUIRER — Another successful Men’s Bonspiel was held in Erskine with 34 teams participating this year, all enjoying the food and laughs. Thanks to all those who donated and all the volunteers who put in their hard work and time.

The next dance jam at the I O O F Hall will be held on Sunday, April 9 from 1 to 4 p.m. Let’s make this a real success by coming out and enjoying the music, dancing, visiting and lunch. Seniors are struggling to keep things going, so come on out and show your support.

A new business in Erskine is V P Liquidation located across from the Erskine Grill. It is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Coming up on the weekend of April 28, 29, and 30 is a scrapbooking retreat sponsored by Sherry’s Scrap’n Shop. To register please contact Sherry at 403-742-0602 in the evenings or me at the Erskine Post Office.

A great supper was put on by the Erskine I O O F. Part of the proceeds were donated towards a new sign to be placed along Highway 12 and other proceeds are to be put into the continuing struggle to raise funds for much-needed renovations to the hall.

Spring break for school began this Monday, March 27 and the students will return on Monday, April 3. April 5 is the Erskine Extreme Parents meeting at 5:15 p.m. P.D. day is April 7, so there is no school on that day and there is no school on April 14, Good Friday and April 17, Easter Monday.
