The Erskine Recreation Board would like to thank Doug MacDougall, Mel Kelm and Allan Docherty for looking after the broken trees at the playground.  The next meeting for the rec board will be the week before the Floats and Flicks, which is on Sept. 12. No firm date or time has been set yet but the meeting will be going over the details for Sept. 12.  Volunteers will be needed so if you can help out at all, please attend the meeting or phone Mark Higgins at 742-5191. Announcements will be made on Facebook under the Erskine Social Recreation Board.  Thanks to all the new people who came out for the last meeting.

The county has had quite a struggle working on the walking path due to so much rain, but progress is being made.  They are hoping to finish before the snow flies.

A memorial tea will be held for past resident Ernie Dobson on Aug. 21 at the IOOF Hall from 1 to 3 p.m.
