The Erskine skating party was a hit last Friday. The weather was great and Mel Kelm got a great fi re going.

There was skating, music and hotdogs for everyone.

Thanks goes out to all those volunteers on the Erskine Recreation Board who organized and put on the party —Sherry Marshall, Candace Rider, AJ Armstrong, Mark Higgins, Debbie Nibourg, Karen Armstrong, Kelly Volker and Don Rasmussen.

Five teams showed up for curling fun on the Family Day Funspiel. Besides curling, there was bingo and dime toss games. All who came had a fun time.

This Friday is the start-up date for Erskine School’s book fair. This event will go on until March 5 and anyone interested is encouraged to come into the school to see what books are for sale. A parent night for extra later hours is scheduled for Feb. 26 from 4:30 till 7:30 p.m., all other days the book fair is on during school and library hours.

Erskine School receives a 50 per cent commission and that then goes toward the purchase of new books for the library.
