Erskine festivities set for September


Erskine Enquirer

Birthday wishes go out to Leanne Leicht this Thursday and Justine Nibourg on Tuesday (Aug. 23).

The summer is quickly getting colder faster. The hot sun just hit last week and now it’s turning colder again.

The crops are behind and need more sun if we have any hope of a good harvest. The farmers are praying for the frost to hold off, for more sun, and for the grain to ripen.

I’m hoping my garden just produces something. I have lots of tomato vines with no tomatoes. Last year, I lost all my tomatoes. My children are sure going to be sad if we don’t have enough to make salsa.

The countdown is on for the new school year. The start date is Sept. 6, a little later than in past years.

A few days later, Sept. 10, marks Erskine Days, with a little fall twist. The parade evening lineup is at 5 p.m., and the parade begins at 5:30.

After the parade, the Evangelical Free Church will host the Good Neighbour barbecue. Fun activities are set for after supper, and the Drive-In movie night begins at dusk.

Anyone interested in helping to make the community event a success, call Mark at 742-5191.

For ideas on the Drive-In movie night, go to Facebook and find “Erskine Annual Drive-In Movie Night” and post what you would like to see.

Erskine Rec board is looking for two movies — one for children and then one for all to watch. Many posts are already on there, so if you want your say in selection, you should let them know soon.
