First day of school, Erskine went into lock down mode. RCMP notified Principal Spiller that a robbery had occurred at the Erskine Liquor Store and the suspect had escaped on foot. The school already had in place a protocol for situations that may pose a threat to students. Lock down was put in place Tuesday afternoon and the RCMP gave the OK to open doors in time for home. Students were strictly supervised getting on the bus and town students were released to parents. Thanks to Erskine school staff and RCMP for keeping our students safe.
The weather was great for Erskine Floats and Flicks night. Many showed up for the parade, BBQ, and movie. Some farmers missed the event as they worked to get crops in before the weather change. Thanks go out to all those involved in planning and pulling off Floats and Flicks evening.
Monday morning produced snow in the Erskine area. Not too many, if any, people were happy about the early snowfall. Many acres of grain are still out in the fields waiting to be harvested. Usually we are trying to beat the frost before the snow.
