BOTHA BOOSTER — Quilting night might start up again on Monday, Sept. 26 at 9:30 a.m. at the seniors’ centre, so keep your eyes open for this. Quilting takes place usually the second and last Monday of each month, but seeing it’s fall, quilting usually starts up the end of September, so get ready for this great event.Everyone is more than welcome to attend even if you have never quilted before, as they would love to teach you this special craft.

Then the last Sunday of September will be the first Old Thyme Dance starting at 1:30 p.m. at the Botha Hall and they would love to see everyone out for this.These dances also have a pot luck luncheon around 5 p.m so they ask everyone to either bring sandwiches/buns, salads or desert with you to share. For more information please contact Doug Haustein at 403-742-2197 or John Blonski at 403-574-2197. These dances are held the last Sunday of each month.

School started up again with the first bell ringing for the 2016-2017 school year this past Monday, Aug. 29, so please watch out for all the children heading back there. The school zones and speed lkimits are now back in effect.

With fall coming upon us now, so is fall cleaning. If you are planning to do some of this and wonder when the Botha Transit Station are open, the hours are every Tuesday from 1 to 5:30 p.m. and again every Saturday from 8 a.m till 12 noon. So hopefully this works for everyone.

Floor curling takes place every Wednesday at 1 p.m. at the seniors’ centre. So come and join in the fun.

Also, every Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. is coffee time at the seniors’ centre, so take a break from your busy schedules and come and have a cup or two of hot fresh coffee with your friends and neighbors.

Got a event coming up in the near future? Why not phone Shaun Derr at 403-742-4811 and rent the Botha Hall. It’s a great place to rent with very reasonable cost, so make sure you call him now and reserve your spot. They have also done some new renovations, so make sure you come on out and see them.

On Sept. 6, come on out to the seniors’ centre for the seniors’ first monthly meeting starting at 12 noon. These start with a pot luck luncheon, so please bring along one of your favorite dishes and join them. The meeting follows right after the luncheon, so they are hoping all seniors can attend.

Bingo night is tonight, so head there around 6:30 p.m. and join in the game, the balls start rolling at 7:15 p.m., so come on out and try out your luck, who knows you could be one of the lucky winners.

This coming weekend is the long weekend before the campgrounds start closing down again, so hopefully everyone can get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Happy Labor Day everyone, have fun.
