Erskine Enquirer

The concern on the minds of most Albertan’s this past week was flooding.

The concern on the minds of most Albertan’s this past week was flooding. Many people tuned into TV and Internet for the latest updates and photos.

We had to reroute our road trip down to Southern Alberta and by Friday afternoon the only road open to get south was the 36.

Driving back home Sunday night, Highway 24 crossing the Bow River finally opened up.

As we crossed the Bow River, the campground was still under water and picnic tables and debris were lodged in the tops of the bushes.

The river was still quite high and crews were still monitoring it.

It’s amazing how quick and devastating Mother Nature can be.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the devastation.

Today is the final day for school for students and they are having quite a fun day. They go swimming and have picnic in the park and then the assembly is held in the gym for elementary students.

The casino fundraiser for Erskine Rec Board was held earlier this week. Thanks to all those who donated their time to organize and go work at the Casino.

Birthday wishes goes out to Shayla Neitz, Sommer Baumann and Eric George.
