Botha Booster

Come on out to the Botha Hall for a very exciting event coming up this coming Sunday, Nov. 30, starting at 1:30 p.m. It’s time for their Old-Time Club Christmas Dance. So if you would like, wear something red or green in color for this festive season event. The “Old-Tyme Aires Band” will be entertaining for this special event. The committee will be serving turkey at this one, so they are asking everyone to bring buns/salad or dessert (Christmas goodies) with you to share with everyone that afternoon. If you have any questions please contact Doug Haustein at 403-742-3994.Everyone is welcome to come to these dances, as there is no age limit, so come on out for a great Sunday afternoon with lots of fun.

With deepest sympathy, we would like to send our prayers and thoughts to Murray Davidson, and their son (Dustin and Miranda Cowan and family) and Murray’s two daughters on the passing of Murray’s wife, Dustin’s mother, and the girls’ (Caitland and Kristen) stepmother, Hazel Davidson. Hazel passed away the evening of Wednesday, Nov. 19 at the age of 49 years. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of Hazel’s family and friends at this time of loss. Hazel and Murray were active members of the Botha area and they were willing to help out with different things that needed to be done in this little village. Hazel, you will be truly missed by all who knew you.

Back on a happier note, come out at 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 9 to the Botha Seniors’ Centre for their annual Christmas Turkey Bingo. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the balls rolling at 7:15 p.m. So come on out and try and win your turkey for your festive season.

Dec. 8, come to the seniors’ centre for another day of quilting. The ladies meet there at 9:30 a.m., and would love to see you all there, and teach you the beautiful art of quilting.

A big congratulations goes out to Flo Iskiw as he has been re-elected as mayor for this little village. Also a big congratulations goes out to Fay Betts (deputy mayor), Ken Hoekstra (councillor) and Eric Jerrand also for being re-elected to their positions. A copy of the appointments are available at the Village Office or by e-mailing at- vlbotha@explornet.com, if you would like a copy.

Starting December, new office hours will be from 8 a.m. till 3 p.m. Other items that were discussed at the October meeting was the start-up of Geographic Information System, the furnace for the old church, which will be turned into to a museum, snow removal, and a lot of other items. If you would like to know what’s happening, please contact the village office.
