More young blood needed for rec board

This is a note to the community from the president of the Erskine Recreation Board:

The Erskine Recreation Board would like to clarify some items from last week’s article. The current executive wants to encourage (and require) more involvement from the younger families in the community.  We have had a few younger folks step up and join the board, and they have provided a fresh perspective. This type of commitment is required by more young families so that the rec. board will be able to continue offering the few events it does and hopefully be able to provide even more social and recreation opportunities for the community.  Financially, the board is in good shape as are most of the facilities.  At our June 4 meeting, we will be having a BBQ at 6 p.m. at the Tot Lot on Main Street (rain or shine) and we would love to see you come out and learn a bit about the rec. board and hopefully commit to help out.  This will be a family affair, so please bring your children.

It looks like we’ll all be able to plant our gardens soon if this warm weather continues.  Some people here have already planted potatoes.

The school kids will be getting a nice long weekend beginning Thursday, May 14, going back on Tuesday May 19.  The grades 6 and 7 will be going on a visit to the legislature on May 27.  June 3 is the Grade 9 Farewell.

There was an excellent turn out at the Mother’s Day Pancake Breakfast held at the IOOF Hall on Sunday.  Funds go towards the renovations to the kitchen.
