The Erskine Floats and Flicks was a great success and everyone had a great time. A wind did come up during the drive in, which made things a bit unpleasant for a while but everything carried on and those who were sitting outside of their vehicles went inside. Amongst the activities were face-painting, tattooing (temporary), hay ride, train ride, bounce house and a wonderful meal put on by the Erskine Evangelical Church. More people attended this year, so everyone was kept quite busy. A huge thank you to the men and women from the church who did a superb job and also a thank you to all the volunteers who helped this year; so nice to see so many in community spirit.
The first dance jam put on by the Erskine Seniors’ Center was also a success with 44 in attendance. People from Elnora, Delburne, Camrose, Bashaw, Red Deer and other places came over to enjoy the music and dancing. Thanks to all who brought lunch. Noticeable in not attending were seniors from Erskine, so it is wondered what it takes to grab their interest and keep the seniors’ centre open and running. There are cards on Wednesday afternoons and the dance jams will continue the second Sunday each month. It’s great to sit and listen to the old time music even if a person does not dance, meet new people and enjoy visiting and having lunch. The seniors also plan to have walks in the hall this winter, so everyone can get some exercise and keep in shape especially when it is too cold to do much outside. We could certainly use some input as to anything else the seniors would be interested in doing.
The ladies’ curling will begin in November and they are looking for any ladies that want to come out to curl. It takes place Monday or Wednesday evenings. Anyone wanting further information can phone Jen at 403-742-0055.
