Don your best western attire on April 30

Come to the Botha Hall next Sunday, April 30 at 1:30 p.m. and dance to the music from the East West Connection Band.

BOTHA BOOSTER — Make sure you come to the Botha Hall next Sunday, April 30 at 1:30 p.m. and dance to the music from the East West Connection Band. They are a great band and you will not want to miss out. The committee would like everyone to bring with them either buns/sandwiches, dessert or salads to share at the 5 p.m. luncheon that afternoon. The theme for this dance is not spring, but more of the westerner. So don your best western clothes and come and have fun.

Hopefully everyone had a great Easter weekend despite the weather, and the Easter bunny was good to everyone. Good Friday we woke up to cooler weather and snow on the ground again, and it kept snowing all day. With the weather as soppy as it was, Easter Sunday was totally different as the sun shone through and made the roads easier for travel. Hopefully this weekend will see the last of the snow, and it will be sunshine from now on, and it will start looking and feeling more like spring.

This month one special gentleman will be celebrating his special day on Monday, April 24. Happy birthday Wally Hudson and here’s hoping you have a fantastic one.

This month the Village Meeting will be held the evening of Thursday, April 27 starting at 7 p.m. So please try and attend it as it forms an important part of our community life.

Coffee is always on at 10 a.m. every Wednesday morning at the Seniors’ Centre, so come on out and take a break away from your busy schedule and join your friends there and have some great conversation over a cup or two of fresh hot coffee.

Then later, on Wednesday at 1 p.m. is floor curling, so come out and join in the game.

Quilting is on Monday, April 24, starting at 9:30 a.m. at the Seniors’ Centre, so if you enjoy quilting or have been sitting on the fence about this great craft, please join this group and members will help you on your way.

Looking for a reasonably-priced hall to host your future events? Please call Shaun Derr at 403-742-4811 , and rent the Botha Hall. It’s a great space to rent for your event, whether big or small.
