No more dance jams in Erskine

But regular crib games will continue on Wednesday afternoons from 1 to 4 p.m., with games night on Thursdays and canasta on Fridays.

ERSKINE ENQUIRER — On Saturday, May 13, the Buffalo Lake Naturalists will be meeting in the Waverly Club Rooms. Under discussion will be information about the Important Bird Areas in the Erskine Area. The naturalists will be checking on birds in Shuckburgh Lake, Ewing Lake and Erskine Lake, counting how many birds use this habitat and the various kinds that use it. Anyone interested is welcome to join the meeting. I will get a time by next week.

Due to lack of cooperation, the Erskine seniors will no longer hold dance jams. But regular crib games will continue on Wednesday afternoons from 1 to 4 p.m., with games night on Thursdays and canasta on Fridays, all in the Seniors’ Centre.

The Erskine Knitting Club will have a day of knitting on Sunday, May 7 in the Seniors’ Centre. They would like to see more people in their club, and are extending the invitation to any crafty ladies who enjoy their hobbies be it crocheting, hand knitting, machine knitting or cross stitching.

There will be a scrapbooking retreat held at the IOOF Hall on the weekend of April 28, 29 and 30. If anyone wishes to see what scrapbooking is all about, they are welcome to drop in. Cardmakers will be there also.

Coming up in May at the Erskine School, on May 3 Grades 6 and 7 will be going to the legislature; May 5 and 23 are PD Days, so there is no school on those days; May 22 is Victoria Day so the kids will enjoy a long weekend. And the Grade 9 Farewell will be on Wednesday, May 31. The Erskine School will be receiving a new roof this summer; it is still to be decided whether to go with shingles or tin.

The hamlet of Erskine is hoping to have a meeting with the County of Stettler sometime in May to discuss the conditions of our roads and yards which were damaged during the installation of the new water system. More information on that as soon as a date has been decided.

I think we are all looking forward to an actual spring; hopefully it will happen soon.
