There will be a county ratepayers meeting on December 3 at 7:30 in the IOOF Hall. It will be informational and the whole county is welcome to attend as the county has decided to have only two meetings per year and this is the first. Our councillor is hoping that there will be a good Erskine turnout.
The Erskine knitting club spent Nov. 7,8 and 9 knitting various outfits and blankets to donate to the Christmas hamper. New members are always welcome and you don’t have to have a knitting machine to join. Any kind of craft can be done in this club including crocheting and cross stitch. Their meetings take place the first Thursday of each month beginning in January at the seniors’ center. I’m not sure whether they begin at 7 or 7:30 but will check at another time.
