Enjoy hockey at the rink, with a mask

I’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. We’ve got some pretty great people living in our area and I’d like to thank you for your support through all these years. Thanks for all the phone calls to keep me abreast of what is going on in our community.

The School Christmas concert was packed with parents and grandparents to give their support to the children. The concert involved all students in ECS to Grade 5. All students participated in a play that started out with all students singing in a big chorus. Then each individual class performed their songs until a big wrap up song in the end. The musical was well performed and practiced. Thanks go to all the teachers involved who helped pull off this fun Christmas production.

All goodies at the end of the play sold quickly and thanks go to all parents who organized the baked goods sale.

For everyone who has enjoyed those Christmas baked goods a little too much and then ran out of money after all the Christmas shopping can go skating for free at the Erskine rink during the holidays. Grab your friends and make a couple of teams and enjoy a round of hockey. Although my husband has found out you have to wear full gear along with a full face mask when playing “Fun” hockey. A couple of black eyes later has shown him that he should never forget the face mask.

Birthday wishes goes out to Allyson Marshall Dec 25, and Nan Gardner Dec 26.
