Curling is now underway in Erskine with men and women’s square draws and new this year is a mixed square draw on Friday nights. Bonspiel dates are yet to be determined.

The Erskine volleyball team placed fifth in the final volleyball tournament which took place on Saturday in Stettler. Basketball will now begin – as yet no dates have been set for that. Don’t forget this is the last week to prepare the Christmas boxes.

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.

Barbara Lieurance is the new minister for the United Church in Erskine and everyone is invited to meet her on Sunday, Nov. 23 at 3 p.m. There will be no morning service on that date.

The parent council meeting is Nov. 19 at 5 p.m. in the school library. Child care will be provided for those who need it.
