The sky opened up during Twin Arrow Ranch’s 14th annual Paint and Quarter Horse production sale on Saturday.

Despite the stormy weather a crowd of more than two hundred people showed up for the event. The sale featured 75 colts, mares and riding geldings for auction. 41 of the horses featured came from Twin Arrows Ranch with another 34 from outside consignors. While in the past many of the ranch’s horses have been sold internationally, this year’s edition are staying closer to home. Most were sold to buyers in British Columbia and Alberta.

On Friday, Erskine students participated in the national Terry Fox Run Day. Hats off to Grade 9 students as they organized a fun scavenger hunt for the entire school to enjoy.

Avery Chick was a happy helper as she assisted her Grandpa with the delivery of the new freezer for the Erskine school. The freezer will be a great asset to the school’s successful Breakfast Club.

Oct. 1, is the student-led conference, goal setting and meet the teacher night. Home-Based-Business Fair will be held in the gym from 5- 9 p.m.

Oct. 5 is an early Monday. Oct. 12 is Thanksgiving Day holiday.
