Post office remains open

There are some birthdays coming up this week to send wishes out to: Justina Nibourg turns 15 on Aug. 23, Don Gardner turns 42 on Aug. 24, and Yvonne Dyer Aug. 24.

The rain put a hamper on the Stettler rodeo last weekend for the cowboys and cowgirls, but the muddy arena sure made it quite entertaining for the crowd. It was great to watch the local cowboys and cowgirls compete in their home town. The rain didn’t put a damper on the crowds of people who came out to support the event.

Clearview teachers head back to school next week, starting with a back to school barb-e-que in Castor on Monday Aug. 24; then PD days on Tuesday and Wednesday. The guest speaker coming up from Arkansas is John Antonetti. He will be giving a presentation to the teachers on Sept. 25 and later that day, from 4:30 – 6:00pm is a parent presentation and all parents are invited to attend this session. Any parent wishing to attend can contact the Clearview office at 742-3331 to register.

The drive-in is coming back to Erskine and the date has been set for Sept. 11. Watch for more information as the date draws near.

Contrary to some rumors being spread around town the Erskine post office is not closing its doors; they have just received new technology to keep on track with today’s world. The new computer is up and running and will keep Erskine on track with mail coming and going around Canada and the rest of the world.
