CARA badminton games took place last week; congratulations to the winners!

ERSKINE ENQUIRER — CARA badminton games took place last week. Congratulations to the winners – Brooke Laisnez won first in Grade 9 singles; McCrindle and Robertson won first in the Grade 9 mixed doubles; Morbeck and VanStraten won second in the Grade 7 mixed doubles; Amanda Couch and Emmy Nugent won second and third in the Grade 8 single girls; and Bryson and Laisnez won the Grade 8 boys’ double. These students will all go to CWAJHAA coming up soon. Good luck to all.

There is no school on May 22 and 23 for Victoria Day and PD day. Enjoy your extra-long weekend. On Friday, May 26 is Crazy Pattern Dress-Up Day, and on Wednesday, May 31 is the Grade 9 Farewell. On Friday, June 2 is Sunglasses Day; June 6 is the Junior High Drama Night; June 7 is Regional Recognition Night and June 8 and 9 is Circle Square Camp for the Grade 9s.

There was a meeting with the County of Stettler and all those from the hamlet of Erskine for updates on the new water system as well as concerns about the roads and yard work still left to be done. The meeting was held yesterday at the IOOF Hall from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Everyone is happy that the large hole has been repaired in front of the post office. It led to a lot of black dirt being spread around various yards as well as some gravel on the roads.

The Erskine Post Office will be closed on Monday, May 22 for Victoria Day; normal delivery will resume on Tuesday.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day.
