All road bans are lifted for Erskine, Nevis and areas that were affected by the heavy snow and rain fall that we had this past season.

The winds this past week have been drying up the area so that farmers can get into their fields and get crops in before it’s too late. This area has seen its fair share of sloughs pop up since the snow melted away, but can’t complain after seeing northern Alberta and their fires sweeping through Slave Lake over the weekend.

Grade 9s hosted their own Wake-a-thon last Friday at school. This year they raised money on behalf of Animal Haven Rescue. The night started out with paint balling in Nevis then off to games in the gym and late that night parents came for participation in the game “sneakers”. The students had to start from one end of town and sneak to the school without being caught by parents. The night ended with breakfast and then the students went home for much needed sleep.

Erskine school is hosting a mini marathon for students in grades four to seven on May 19 from 1 to 2 p.m. Money raised will go towards the Edmonton Stollery’s hospital for sick children.

This is the extra long weekend of holiday for students. Friday, May 20 students get off as well as Victoria Day on Monday May 23.

Don’t forget that hot lunch day is May 26.

Stettler Public Library’s after-school program starts up again on May 27.

Provincial exams have already started and will continue till the end of June.

Birthday wishes go out to Cayla Heintz May 20, and to Felix Heninger, also May 20.

Anniversary wishes are extended out to Ryan and Tara Heintz May 18, Gary and Sandy Greenlee May 22, and Toni and Colby Squires May 24.
