Magazine sales on the top shelf



I do believe that most of the harvest is done. This past week of excellent weather, the crops came off at great speed. There was a threat of rain over the weekend, but it only came in the form of a few drops.

Jean Ortman passed away Sept. 24 and her funeral was held this past Friday at the Evangelical Free Church. Jean and her husband Earl have lived in Erskine for more than 40 years. Many children growing up around here knew her for her delicious cinnamon buns. Most of their children still live nearby. Our condolences go out to the whole Ortman family at this time.

This week is the kickoff for magazine sales for Erskine School. Students from the school will be out selling for the next couple of weeks.

There will be no after-school library program this Friday.

Birthday wishes goes out to Peter Pollock on Oct. 7, Sean Higgins on Oct. 9, and Benjamin Bauman on Oct. 11.

Happy anniversary to Tammy and Peter Pollock on Thanksgiving Day (Monday).
