Last week’s weather was about as perfect as one could request after a cold wet summer. It gave time for crops to ripen and for farmers to get ready for the harvest.

Erskine Flicks and Floats Night went well. The many participants showed up with costumes, candy and props and headed down the streets of Erskine with smiles.

The Drive-In movie had great weather for people to sit outside or in cars and watch some fun family shows. Barbecued hamburgers and hotdogs were a hit at the Evangelical Church, along with balloons, face painting, tattoos, and nail-painting.

The Erskine Rec Board had fireworks in between the movies and they were a hit.

Thanks to all volunteers who helped make the evening fun for all and thanks to the sponsors who donated to the event.

Erskine School picture day is Thursday, and the only request is please don’t wear green.

Play school starts today and will run this year every Wednesday and Friday at 8:45 a.m.

Breakfast club is already underway and is on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Meet-the-teacher night is Sept. 27 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
