Harvest has been put on hold again although a few farmers I have talked to are done. Unfortunately, not many. So let’s hope and pray for very nice weather so everyone can finish.
The Erskine Recreation Board held their monthly meeting and Larry Macey is going to look after the skating rink again this year. He did a wonderful job last year so we are grateful that he is willing to take it on again. Discussion took place about Halloween and I will have more about that later in October since the parent council is going to have something for everyone also. The Board is always looking for more participation in meetings from the community, especially those who have children so their input can be heard.
It would be sad for the community if they had to disband due to apathy because there would be no board to look after playgrounds or the skating rink and other kids activities in the community.
The Erskine Seniors are playing crib on Wednesdays at the Seniors’ Centre at 1 p.m. Everyone is welcome to come and play, and you don’t have to be a senior to take part in this.
Anyone wishing to book the Waverly Club Rooms or the Seniors’ Centre can contact me at 403-742-0604 or 403-742-4561. Both places are good for showers, birthday parties or meetings and the rates are very reasonable. Bookings for the IOOF Hall are done by phoning Cheryl Fisher at 403-742-0278.
