Harvest is wrapping up this the fall, with another nice, long Indian summer, just like we had last year.
I’m thinking I should send out a “you’re welcome” message to whoever helped themselves to 80 gallons of diesel and tools from our combine a couple of weeks ago, knowing full well that whoever took it isn’t reading this.
Every week, the police report in the newspaper shows us that our community isn’t as crime-free as we seem to think it is. But I do know that there are many people out there doing good deeds and volunteering their time in the community.
On this Thanksgiving weekend, it’s a good time to thank the many good and honest people that live in our community.
Speaking of givers, the Erskine school held its annual Terry Fox fundraiser last Friday, with students previously going around town and collecting money.
The Grade 9 leadership group made up a map for students to go around Erskine and hunt for spots, and they ended the day with donuts donated by Erskine Extreme Parent Society.
First place for the fundraiser went to Sydney Peterson. Second place went to Sydney Lepard, and third went to Megan Matchett. The school raised $2,010.22.
Magazine sales are well on their way, with students going around town this week selling subscriptions. The campaign wraps up on Oct. 12.
