Condolences are sent to the McNeill family on the passing of Cam, a long-time resident of Erskine. And also to the Hallett family for the passing of Brian. Many have seen Brian with his landscaping equipment and roto tiller around Erskine.

The last crib game at the Senior Centre was played last Wednesday, June 28. They will resume again in the fall. Depending on the number of people on hand, games on Thursday evening and canasta on Fridays will continue.

The Erskine Evangelical Church will be holding a community barbecue on Tuesday, July 11 at 6 p.m. Following the barbecue, there will be entertainment by Crimson River at 7 p.m. All will be held outside unless there is inclement weather and then it will be inside. All proceeds will be going to the building fund.

From July 24-27, the Erskine Evangelical Church will hold their Summer Vacation Bible School. This year there will be soccer at the Erskine School fields for Kindergarten to Grade 6. There is no charge for this and all kids are welcome. Anyone wanting more information can phone Erin Leschert at 403-430-0444.

I hope all the kids and teachers have a great summer.

A couple of weeks ago, there was some mischief done in the Erskine Post Office but fortunately nothing was stolen and very little was harmed. Erskine Auto Electric was broken into at the same time. The police were out in a timely manner.

Isn’t the highway from Erskine to Stettler really smooth after all these years? Too bad that the county didn’t get on board and have the shoulders in Erskine paved while they were here. Guess that would be too efficient. Hopefully the company who put in the water lines will return to harvest the canola that is growing around Erskine instead of grass!

Have a good week.
