Erskine Enquirer

Erskine residents and all those who have an interest in your Erskine community are invited to attend the Erskine Concept Plan on Wednesday, July 13 at 5pm at the IOOF hall. This is hosted by Stettler County and they have brought in Sandalack and Associates Inc. to help with the planning. All are invited to come and share your ideas for growth in your community. At 5 p.m. meet at the hall then at 5:30 the walkabout tour. At 6:45 it’s the workshop. If you cannot attend the whole meeting you are welcome to stop by and give any input you would like to go into the plan.

Beef on a bun and light refreshments will be served during the meeting. If you have any questions please call the Planning and Development Department at the Stettler County Office at 742-4441.

My family took a visit down to Montana last week. The river surrounding the I15 had raised significantly to flood many houses. What really caught my eye is that many people are now having meetings about being self-reliant. Growing your own gardens, building up a one-year food storage and so forth. This isn’t just going on in Montana but across the whole nation. We can take a cue from that and start up with checking our food supply, medical and 72 hour kits for those instant disasters.

The wind storm on Sunday scattered the area with broken branches and debris, but didn’t last long.

Belated Anniversary wish to Kevin and Traci Smith on July 3.

Birthday wishes goes out to Glen Morbeck July 6, Doris Peterson July 9, and Bobbi Jo Gordon July 10.
