Spring is almost here, just after this winter spell

According to the calendar, Monday, March 20 is the first day of spring.

BOTHA BOOSTER — According to the calendar, Monday, March 20 is the first day of spring. So if Old Man Winter decides to never give up, spring is on its way and will make him quit shortly, and we can’t wait. But unfortunately these past few days have been chilly and really cold again, so hopefully these are the last few days of subzero temperatures.

Also this Monday is the day to join your friends at the Senior Centre at 1 p.m. and play a game of cards. We would love to see everyone join us and keep this activity going.

Tomorrow afternoon is floor curling at 1 p.m., so come on down and join in the game.

Every Wednesday morning is Coffee Hour at 10 a.m., so come join your friends for some great conversation and great times.

With all our Grade 12 students taking their mid-term exams, let’s wish all of them good luck and hope they do really well.

On Friday, March 17 is St. Patrick’s Day, so celebrate this special event and wear something green in colour. Everyone can be a happy joyful leprechaun for one day and have fun.

The important Village meeting will be on Thursday, March 23, starting at 7 p.m. at the Village Office. Please try and attend it and be informed of all the community affairs.

On Sunday, March 26 starting at 1:30 p.m. head to the Botha Hall to celebrate their Easter Dance. The Sparkling Tones Band will be performing that afternoon. Can you think of a better way to spend a Sunday afternoon than with your friends and family, dancing to some great music?! The committee is asking everyone to bring with them either buns/sandwiches, salads or dessert to share at the luncheon and don’t forget to wear spring colours.

Come out to the Seniors’ Centre on Monday, March 27 at 9:30 a.m. and join the quilting group. They would love to see everyone.

The next Bingo game is tonight, March 15, so come on out and try out you luck, who knows you could bring the luck of the Irish with you, and be one of the big winners tonight.

Wishing everyone a very happy St. Patrick’s Day; remember to dress in green and have fun.
