Erskine floats, flicks into fall

The Erskine Floats and Flicks night had wonderful weather.

The Erskine Floats and Flicks night had wonderful weather.

The evening was perfect for the parade, the E-Free Good Neighbor Barbecue and games and the movies. The whole event attracted a great attendance and families enjoyed great entertainment and food.

Thanks go out to the Erskine E-Free Church for hosting the barbecue, Ole McDonald’s for supplying donuts and the train for kids’ train rides, Mel Kelm for cutting all the grass around town, Clint Marshall and his drive-in production crew, everyone that joined the parade, and the Rec Board and its members for all the work they did.

I think Erskine has proved that a fall family fun night with a parade and drive-in movie is a hit and I’m sure this annual event will continue for many more years.

Last week opened the new school year. Welcome back to the returning students and welcome to those new ones who have moved into the area.

Birthday wishes go out to Toni Squires on Sept. 13, Jennifer Higgins on Sept. 15, and Shelley Coleman on Sept. 16.

Happy anniversary to Jodi and Curtis McCord and Stan and Barb Gardner, both on Sept. 12.
