Crimes took place in Erskine

Let's hope we have seen the last of snow and it changes to good old rain, which we sure could use.

At least there was some moisture in that snow and it was rather pretty to see it hanging on the spruce trees.  I see the grass is now green and soon we’ll be mowing.

Some crimes took place in Erskine last week and the week before — the Erskine Store was broken into and there was damage done, but not too much was stolen.  The  office door on the Erskine Post Office was kicked in, but he did not stay long because the alarm went off after 20 seconds which probably scared him off.  Nothing was taken. A couple of trucks were stolen but found again with damage done to them.  And I believe a few other things were done.  We are not the only place that was “attacked” by these morons.

There is a scrapbooking/cardmaking workshop this weekend at the IOOF Hall beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday and continuing until 4 p.m. or so on Sunday.  Anyone interested can contact me at the post office at 742-0604.

The Knitting Club will hold their monthly meeting at the seniors’ centre at 7 p.m.

Ceramics is still continuing at the Waverly Club Rooms every Wednesday afternoon and this continues all summer.  Anyone interested can phone Pat Anderson.

Crib is also continuing at the seniors’ centre on Wednesday afternoons at 1:30 and they have decided to do this each Wednesday until June 30. All are welcome and you don’t have to be a senior to join in.

Anyone wanting to book the club rooms can contact me at 742-0604 — it is ideal for kids’ birthday parties or showers.

Coming up at the Erskine School — May 4 is early Monday, grades 6 to 9 will be attending a camp at the Circle Square Ranch from May 6 to 8.  On May 11 is the Grade 9 LA PAT, part A and on May 13 is the Grade 6 LA PAT , part A.  There is no school May 14 as it is PD Day, no school on the 15 and no school on Victoria Day the 18, so the kids will have a nice long weekend.
