There has been a change to our Botha Community lately that they would like everyone to notice. They would like to first thank Mrs. Marsha Mailer for looking after the hall and the arena for several years now, as Marsha has decided to step down from the position now as the person taking bookings for both places. So we would like to welcome Mr. Shaun Deer to the position of booking for the hall and the arena. Thank you Shaun for doing this for us. So if you like to rent the hall or arena please call Shaun at 403-742-4811, and he will gladly help you out.
