I had the pleasure of attending the County of Stettler’s Community Service Awards this past Friday at Linda Hall, they, as expected, put on a great evening with food prepared by the Linda Hall ladies and entertainment by the Tradesmen.

The Botha Community Centre presented two awards again this year. The lifetime community service award was presented to Isabel Kerl, this award was given to Jean Jackson last year, both recipients are well deserving. As well, we presented the youth service award, this was presented to Kendra Grams, last years award went to Adrianne Shepherd, again both very deserving of this award.

At the awards this year, the County of Stettler announced who would be receiving their grant funding: I am pleased to report that the Botha Community Centre will be receiving $26,000 of those funds, this will allow the community centre to tin the roof on the arena as well as replace the rink boards and the cooler in the kitchen.

The Botha Senior Centre continues with carpet bowling Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m., floor curling is Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.
