Erskine welcomes campers for weekend

.

Erskine Enquirer

Erskine IOOF Lodge hosted its annual camp-out for Odd Fellows members, family and friends this past weekend, with 63 people in attendance. People from as far as Lethbridge up to Edson came to participate and enjoy good food, fun and entertainment.

Friday night, they had a big barbecue. Saturday was filled with games and entertainment. Saturday’s evening hay ride was detoured because of an accident at the intersection of 835 and Highway 12.

After the hay ride, they hosted a roast beef supper. Sunday morning, there was a pancake breakfast for all and a non-denominational church service. Those who attended the weekend said they’d love for Erskine Odd Fellows to host another camp-out next year. So IOOF plans to host the next camp-out in the summer of 2012.

Happy anniversary goes out to Ken and Sharon Haight on Aug. 10.

Birthday wishes for this week go out to Kelsey Heintz on Aug 12, Bernie Jackson and Adam Standage on Aug 13, and Sheldon Chick and Miranda Bauman on Aug 14.
