New blood required for recreation board

The Erskine IOOF will be holding their Mothers’ Day Pancake Breakfast this Sunday at the hall at 9 a.m. 

Bring your wives and moms out for an excellent breakfast and help support this fundraiser.

There is a problem within the Erskine Recreation Board, which needs to be addressed to our community of young parents.  The current executive has been on the board for at least 20 years and new people are required to take over.  If the board folds, there will no longer be the Waverly Club Rooms, the playground, the skating rink and shack and no community events, so it is crucial for someone else to take their turns instead of just taking advantage of everything with no input or without helping out occasionally.  Our board is tired and they have no small children anymore.  To this end, there will be a picnic in the park on Thursday, June 4 at 6 p.m.  This is for adults only.  Walk, bike or drive over to the playground for hot dogs, refreshments and socializing.  Please come and support our community — new volunteers with new ideas are needed.

A good time was had by all the scrapbookers who came out for a weekend retreat at the hall in Erskine.  The next one will be in October, so watch for emails about when and where.

The kids will have a nice long weekend beginning May 14, which is PD Day, May 15 in lieu of PD Day thru to May 18, which is Victoria Day.  On March 27, grades 6 and 7 will have a visit to the Legislature.

Happy Mothers’ Day to all the mothers out there.
