Vacation Bible school coming to Erskine

The abundance of rain has produced tall and heavy crops this season.

The oats and barley silage crop is so tall that the windrow has never been so thick and heavy in years.

The crops are a little behind in ripening up because we haven’t had enough heat units to get it growing quickly.

So now the trick is to get the crop off without rain falling on it. I’m guessing many farmers are going to straight combine this year and the frost has to stay away too.

Many kids are still waiting for the heat of summer to come. We’ve had so much rain and cool weather that playing outside in the sun has come on rare days.

Now school starts up next Wednesday, Sept. 1. Lets hope this week ends with nice sunshine.

Erskine Evangelical Church’s vacation Bible school starts next week, Aug 30 to September 2 from 3 to 5:30 pm.

Erskine’s drive-in movie is Sep 11 at dusk behind the school.

Birthday wishes goes to Carson Neitz on Aug 28, Charlee Mappin on Aug 29, Heath McKay on Aug 30, Bill Standage on Aug 31, and Bobbie Mappin on Aug 31.

Happy anniversary to Mark and Jill Neitz on Aug 29.
