The Erskine junior high girls’ volleyball team came home with gold medals after placing first in the Bashaw volleyball tournament this past weekend. Six teams from around the area attended the tournament. Our girls’ played their best and had fun in the process. They enjoyed meeting new girls from other schools. Congratulations girls.

On Halloween night, the Erskine rec board will be at the Waverly club rooms for a meet and treat stop and go for parents and children to stop and get a treat and take a little break before they head back out into the night for more door to door treats. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Erskine United Church welcome to worship service will now be at 1 p.m. starting this Sunday, Nov 1, and will keep the same time up through February.

The Erskine rec board’s annual general meeting will be held on Nov. 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the club rooms. This meeting is open for all Erskine and area residents who would like to help out with activities that the rec board is in charge of each year.

The lucky winner of the Erskine School’s 3rd annual Home-Based Business Fair basket went to Janet Rowledge, who graciously says thanks to all the businesses who helped fill the basket with looks of fun things for her to enjoy.

A call to all Erskine, Rochon Sands, Nevis and all other Erskine school area residents. Mark on your calendar, Nov. 19, for the community consultation night. Clearview Public School Division will be hosting the evening and would like your input about your school and what you think the vital components of education are for our children in our community. Even if you don’t have children in the school system, your voice is a valuable asset for setting the path of our children’s future. There will be supper and childcare provided. In order to help the night run efficiently we need everyone to RSVP with the Erskine school. Please call the Erskine School at 403 742-5220.

Birthday wishes go out to Chris Standage Oct. 28, Ryan Heintz Oct. 31, Kelly Page Oct. 31, Kevin Smith Nov. 1, and Chance Morbeck Nov. 2.

Happy anniversary to Sheldon and Christine Chick Oct. 28.
