Botha Booster

We are coming up to a very special event that we all need to remember and that event is Remembrance Day, November 11, when we need to remember all our veterans that had to fight for our freedom, some even losing their lives for us. Buy a poppy now, in remembrance of them, and the veterans we are lucky enough to have still with us today. There are several Remembrance events around the country, so please do your part and attend one of these.

On Tuesday, Nov. 11, there will be no Bingo, due to Remembrance, so the next Bingo evening will be held on Nov. 25, when they are going to hold their turkey Bingo starting at 7:15 p.m. at the Botha Seniors’ Centre. Everyone is welcome to attend, so why not come out that evening and you could be one of the lucky ones taking home a turkey or two with you for your festive season which is coming up soon.

The BCC Committee would like to thank everyone for coming out and supporting their annual Christmas Craft Fair, which was held this past Saturday, Nov. 1. Hopefully everyone was able to start some Christmas shopping for that or them special people on your Christmas list. A big thank you goes out to Santa Claus for making a surprising visit to this event, the children loved seeing you there and it made their day, so thank you Santa. Also a big thank you for everyone who rented tables and brought their items with you to sell, there was something for everyone.

Last but not least, a big thank you goes out to Christine Wedrick for taking charge of this event and getting everything to run so smoothly. Without you, this event would have never been able to be held this year. It was truly appreciated.

Also a big thank you to everyone who organized the concession and also our photographer who came  all the way from Alix.

On Monday, Nov. 10, Matthew Morris will be celebrating his birthday. So happy birthday Matthew, hope you have a fantastic day.

Nov. 19 will be the BCC meeting held at the Botha Hall. The BCC Committee would like to see everyone attend these important meetings.

The next Old Time Dance will be held the last Sunday of November, starting at 1:30 p.m. There is no age limit, so everyone can come and join in the fun.

Monday, Nov. 10, join the ladies at the Botha Seniors’ Centre starting at 9:30 a.m. for another day of quilting. If you have never quilted before but are interesting in this neat craft, please still join them as they would love to teach you what they know about this important craft. Quilting days take place the second and last Monday of each month.

Thursday Nov. 27, come out to the Botha Village Office starting at 7p.m., for their important meeting. Everyone is welcome to attend, and they would love to see you.

If you would like a neat place to rent to hold your Christmas parties, or New Year’s gatherings, please contact Shaun Derr at 403-742-4811 to book the Botha Hall. There is lots of room, a great sound system and also a large kitchen area with a couple stoves, and a large fridge area. The hall is very reasonable in price, so make sure you contact him. Shaun Derr also handles the Botha Arena now as Marsha Mailer has stepped out of the position. So make sure you phone Shaun to find out information and to book for either place.
