Seniors’ centre getting facelift

ERSKINE ENQUIRER -- Congratulations to the Erskine girls who won the gold in the final basketball game of the season.

ERSKINE ENQUIRER — Congratulations to the Erskine girls who won the gold in the final basketball game of the season. I understand it was an exciting game right to the end. And congratulations to Broc Chick who scored six goals in hockey against Sylvan Lake and also did a double hat trick. Another Gretzky in the making??

The long awaited facelift has begun on the Erskine Seniors’ Centre. First comes the painting and then the new floor and there will be other things added as time goes by. By the time all is finished, it should look really inviting to come and play crib, canasta, pool, shuffleboard etc.

Friday is the last day of the book fair at the school. CARA curling takes place in Coronation on Feb. 25. Coming up in March: March 5 is CARA basketball, March 7 is early Monday, Teachers Convention is March 10 and 11, March 22 is report card day.

This Thursday, March 26, the County of Stettler will hold a meeting at the IOOF Hall about the new water lines being installed in Erskine. This is an informative meeting only from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
