After intense heat, spell of moisture proves to be timely

Another special birthday is coming up for this Saturday.

Another special birthday is coming up for this Saturday.

It’s Kaleigh Morris’ special day. Happy birthday, Kaleigh, and hope you have a great day.

We have had beautiful weather all week, with lots of sun and very warm weather, which makes it nice for all those people who are out camping.

Some people are saying it’s been too hot, so now a few days of cooler weather with some moisture would be nice before everything dries out too much.

I think we got our wish, as this past weekend was cloudy, and with some moisture that will help.

The next Bingo evening is July 31, starting at 7:15 p.m.

So come on out to Botha Seniors’ Centre for another fun-filled, exciting evening.

Village taxes are also due on July 31, so make sure you come out to the Village of Botha office and get those paid. After that date, a penalty will be added on.

The Village of Botha has been quiet for the summer months, until everything comes back into gear again come fall, so there isn’t much news for now. We hope everyone is enjoying their summer months.

Sorry there are no playground activities going on this week, but they will start up again on July 24 at 9:30 a.m. and run until noon.

That will continue from that date until Aug. 3, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

If any questions or concerns, contact Jamie Wahl at 403-742-5986 or email her at, or feel free to message Jamie at “The Botha Playground Program” on Facebook.

One big event coming up the end of September is the “Raise The Roof,” so stay tuned for news on that.

Also, the Botha Community Centre is looking for fresh ideas for the Botha recreational facilities. Our next meeting is at the end of the summer. The contact is Lorraine Hankins. Call her at 403-742-3937.
