BOTHA BOOSTER — It’s hard to believe another month is over and we’ll be going into spring pretty soon finally, March can be another old month, but hopefully soon it will start feeling like spring again. I have heard a lot of people say they are getting tired of winter and can’t wait for spring to show its face, so lets hope it won’t be long.
The first event of March is happening tonight, March 1. It’s bingo evening, starting at 7:15 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. So grab your bingo dobbers and head over to the Senior Centre and get ready for another great evening of fun and excitement. Please keep in mind that bingo evenings are always on Wednesdays and will not be held on March 12 as I had previously mentioned in last week’s column.
The second event for the month is on Tuesday, March 7, and it is the monthly seniors’ meeting starting at noon. It will start out with a potluck luncheon, so please bring something to share with all attendees, and the meeting will follow immediately after.
Daylight Saving takes place on Sunday, March 12, so this sounds excellent as we will be having more daylight in the evenings now to get something done after work.
All community members should know that on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. we host carpet bowling, so please come and join in the fun. Also, every Wednesday mornings at 10 a.m. is Coffee Hour with your friends so make some time to come and catch up.
Thursday afternoons at 1 p.m. is floor curling time, if you are not busy with anything pressing, please come out and take time for your friends and curl with them.
With spring on its way and the weather jumping around like it is, make sure you check first and see if the ice arena is open for skating before heading down. If the ice is still good, get out there and enjoy all the fun before the ice is gone again for another year.
Quilting happens again on Monday, March 13, starting at 9:30 a.m., so please plan to attend that day. Everyone who attends these quilting sessions have lots of fun.
The Old Tyme Dance Club will be holding their next dance on Sunday, March 26, starting at 1:30 p.m. and the theme for this one is Easter. So please dress in Easter colours and come out for the afternoon. Everyone is more than welcome to attend as there is no age limits on these dances.The band for this month will be the “Sparkling Tones,” so you will not want to miss out.
If you know of any upcoming birthdays, anniversaries, baby announcement, showers etc., please let me know so we can get them in our column. You can call me at 403-742-5317 and we will include it in our column. Let’s get some new events and happenings in our column to make it more interesting for people in the community. Thank you.
Hope everyone has a fantastic week.
