Harvest Days set for Erskine


Erskine Enquirer

School has started and Erskine Harvest Days are here.

This weekend is Erskine’s first floats and flicks night event. It will be an entire Saturday evening of entertainment for the whole family.

The night will start off with a parade at 5:30 p.m., with lineup at 5 p.m. at the school. Wanted are entries of dressed-up kids on decorated bikes, vintage cars, dressed-up people on decorated horses and floats, plus other fun-themed costumes and vehicles.

People are encouraged to pull on a creative hat, find a theme and enter the parade.

The parade will be followed by the Good Neighbour Barbecue, which is hosted by the Erskine Evangelical Free Church at 6 p.m. at the church. Kids events run from 6:30 to 7:30 and will include face painting and fingernail painting.

Then the gates open for the drive-in movie at 7:30 p.m. The first movie starts at dusk and the second movie will begin as soon as the first is done.

For more information or to offer volunteer help, call Sherry at 742-0602. If it’s rained out, the event will be rescheduled for Sept. 17.

Birthday wishes go out to Carole Barclay on Sept. 9, Kerri Marshall on Sept. 11, and Toni Squires on Sept 13.
