Erskine Knitting Club Retreat this weekend

It appears that the crew installing the water lines is almost finished until spring, when they will come back to repair all the damage done.

ERSKINE ENQUIRER — It appears that the crew installing the water lines is almost finished until spring, when they will come back and repair all the damage done to our streets which seems to be very extensive. I was told they will be repairing all the paving they have destroyed. The project has not been without a lot of troubles such as leaking, hitting sewer lines and telephone lines. Must have been quite frustrating for them as well as us.

Coming up on Sunday, Feb. 12 is the Valentine’s Dance Jam at the IOOF Hall from 1 to 4 p.m. Come and play an instrument or listen to the music, dance or just visit. All ages are welcome. Also drop into the Seniors’ Centre on Fridays at 10 a.m. for coffee and cookies. This is also for all ages. It provides a good opportunity to meet and visit with your neighbours and community members.

The knitting club will host a knitting retreat at the Erskine Seniors’ Centre from Friday to Sunday, Feb. 10-12. All knitters and crocheters are welcome, whether you do it by hand or machine. We are always looking for new members.

Family Day Funspiel is coming up on Monday, Feb. 20. All those interested in entering their family can phone Shelby Kobi at 403-742-5301. There will be games and other activities, so bring your family for a day of fun.

The ladies’ annual bonspiel will be held from Monday, Feb. 27 to Sunday, Mar. 5. Anyone interested in entering a team can phone Karen Armstrong at 403-742-3824 or 403-741-9989. This will be followed by the men’s bonspiel from Sunday, Mar. 12 to Sunday, Mar. 19. To register your team please phone Miles Armstrong at 403-741-4997.

Any Erskine kids who would like to play ball can register upstairs at the Stettler Recreation Center on Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 15 and 16 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on both days. All boys and girls, of all ages are welcome.

I think the Tail Creek Snowbirds would like to see some snow so tha they can enjoy their poker rally scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 11.
