Coming up on Saturday, Sept. 9 is the 11th annual “Floats and Flicks” night. The parade begins at 5:30 p.m. and entries are welcome. Lineup for the parade is at 5 p.m. at the Erskine School. After the parade is the Good Neighbour barbecue, which is hosted by the Evangelical Free Church at 6 p.m. Kids’ activities follow from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m., complete with a bouncy house. The drive-in movie begins at dusk, around 8:15 p.m. There is a concession on site. For all of this to be asuccess, we need volunteers to help out. Please phone Mark Higgins at 403-742-5191 or Sherry Marshall at 403-742-0602 in the evenings if you can volunteer.

Kayla Hronek participated in the Stettler Junior Rodeo and did very well. She won second in barrel racing, received her first goat-tying buckle and won third in the pole race. Congratulations Kayla.

Francien Verhoeven will begin art lessons on Thursday, Sept. 7 to 9 for kids, and Monday, Sept. 11 for adults. If you are interested you can phone her at 403-741-5977 for more information. Francien is a wonderful artist herself and has much to teach anyone interested.

Seniors’ crib begins on Wednesday, Sept. 6 in the Seniors Centre at 1:30 p.m. All are welcome to come and play and it is not necessary to be a senior to join in.

Harvest is underway in our area so many farmers are busy getting their crops in. Hope all goes well for them this year.

And don’t forget the scrapbooking retreat on Sept. 15 to 17 at the IOOF Hall in Erskine. Anyone wanting to register for this can phone me at 403-742-0604 or Sherry Marshall at 403-742-0602.
