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.
