BOTHA BOOSTER — Make sure you come to the Village Office tomorrow evening at 7 p.m. for the monthly meeting, which is very important to our members and community. We really want a good turnout and hope that everyone who can come makes it.

Christine Wedrick is celebrating her birthday this Friday, Jan. 27, so hoping you have a fantastic birthday with lots of fun and relaxation time.

On Sunday, Jan. 29, make sure you come out to the Botha Hall at 1:30 p.m. and dance to the music from the “Black Velvet Band.” They are a fantastic band, and the Old Tyme Dance Club promises you a great time. There is no age limit on these dances so everyone can come out and have a good time. At 5 p.m. they will hold a potluck luncheon, so the committee is asking everyone to either bring buns/sandwiches, salad or dessert to share at the gathering.

Quilting will be next on Monday, Jan. 30 at 9:30 a.m., so please come out and join the group. Everyone is welcome.

Bingo evening happens on Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 7:15 p.m. at the Senior Centre. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., so come on out and try your luck, who knows you could be one of the lucky winners, like at the last bingo game, there was a lucky winner of the jackpot. Who knows it could be your turn next!

Coffee Hour is very Wednesday at 10 a.m., so take some time out of your busy schedule and make sure you join your friends for a hot cup of coffee, freshly made and some great conversation.

Carpet bowling takes place every Wednesday afternoon at 1 p.m. so come on out and join in the game. They would love to see everyone.

Floor curling is every Thursday at 1 p.m. and they would love to see everyone join in the game.

This Thursday, Jan. 27 will be the start out date for both students and staff at skiing hill in Alliance. So have fun everyone and if parents would like to join in this activity, the staff would love to see you join them.

Skating continues every Monday, Wednesday and Friday of the week for students. So please don’t forget to send your child skates these days, or meet them at the arena and join in the fun.

Senior monthly meeting is on Monday, Feb. 6 at noon, so they are hoping all seniors will be able to attend. The potluck luncheon will be first, with the meeting to follow right after, so please bring something with you to share at the event.

There’s been a fantastic change in the weather pattern, but for how long who knows? It has nicely warmed up with snow melting along stretches, so get out and enjoy it, before winter decides to hit us hard again.
