Hoping for better acoustics at the concert

The knitting club held their monthly meeting last Thursday evening.

Erskine Enquirer

The knitting club held their monthly meeting last Thursday evening. From all the ladies’ work this year, 57 pairs of slippers will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House. Their donations to the Christmas Hamper will be 72 toques, 15 mittens, 11 baby afghans, 4 sweaters, 1 dress, 9 scarves and neck warmers, 12 dish cloths, 1 scarf set and $100 cash. By these numbers, you can see how busy the ladies have been. Their next meeting will be on Saturday, Jan. 17 from 1 to 5 p.m. and the ladies will be going out for supper after the afternoon’s knitting.

The county meeting held in Erskine had a very good turnout and was very informative. We were assured that water from the Red Deer River would not be put into Erskine until the majority of people want it or if all our wells go dry. There is still some work to be done on the new subdivision, but it is coming along very well and it is to hoped that lots will be for sale sometime in 2015, which will help recover some of the costs of the development. A request was made to move the Stettler sign on the lake road down a block to prevent the semis from turning east on a residential street (those that are new to our area) which will help prevent the breaking up of the pavement. It is hoped that the work on the walking path along the lake road will begin in the spring.

Coming up for the Erskine School will be the Junior High Drama Night on Dec. 16, parent council meeting on Dec. 17, the Christmas concert on Dec. 18 and P J Dress up Day on Dec. 19 as well as the Christmas swim.

There will be a seniors’ meeting at the Seniors’ Centre tonight at 7 p.m. All seniors are welcome to attend.

The Erskine Recreation Board will hold their meeting on Thursday, Dec. 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Waverly Club room. It would be nice to see some new faces at this meeting, so everyone is welcome to attend.

There will be a card making class at the home of Sherry Marshall this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Anyone wanting more information can phone me at 742-0604 or 742-4561. All materials will be supplied.

This Sunday, there will be bonfire at the Erskine United Church at 2 p.m. There will be hot chocolate and hot dogs and the singing of Christmas carols. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The ceiling in the gym at the school has been worked on, so it is hoping that the acoustics should be much better for the Christmas concert.

This year it is requested that families donate as much baking as possible on the night of the Christmas concert. All proceeds will be going towards children’s activities. Each one that donates will have their name entered for a prize for every dozen donated.
