The Old Tyme Dance Club will be hosting their second-last dance before their summer break on May 28, starting at 1:30 p.m.

BOTHA BOOSTER — The Old Tyme Dance Club will be hosting their second-last dance before their summer break on May 28, starting at 1:30 p.m. The theme for this one is spring, so if you’d like to wear something bright, that would be wonderful. If you would like any information on any of these dances, please call Doug Haustein at 403-742-3994 or John Blonski at 403-574-2197.

Quilting takes place on Monday, May 22, starting at 9:30 a.m., so come out and join the group that day. Quilting takes place every second and last Monday of each month. They usually close down to for the summer months, so please ask a member when the last one will be before it ends for the summer months.Than they start up again sometime after harvest.

Bingo evening is on Wednesday, May 24, starting at 7:15 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m. Bingo usually goes on throughout the summer months.

Coffee is always on at 10 a.m., every Wednesday morning and at 1 p.m. is carpet bowling. It’s a way to get exercise and have a great time while doing so.

Every Thursday at 1 p.m. is floor curling. It’s another great way to exercise while having a great time with your friends.

It is the start of the camping season this coming weekend, when the campgrounds reopen. It’s also Victoria Day weekend, with a lot of people enjoying their first camp out, so hopefully the weather will cooperate and everyone can get out and enjoy the great outdoors.

The Village office meeting will be held on Thursday, May 25, starting at 7 p.m.

Spring is finally here with green grass showing up. This past week we have had lots of heat which feels great except the mosquitos are out in full force again, time for bug spray. Farmers are also out working round the clock to get their land worked and planted again for another year, so people seem to be really busy.

If you have any upcoming events, or anything else that you would like in our column please send an email to or facebook me, or call me at 403-7423-5317 and I will be happy to include it in the column.

Happy Victoria Day!
