There’s just one more week to pay your Botha land taxes before the penalty is added to your bill. So make sure you make it out before closing time on July 31 … to avoid the penalty.

Botha is still looking for a village worker. The worker must have a valid driver’s licence and be familiar with equipment, especially tractors. Please bring a resume or written application into the village office.

The Summer Playground Program is well on its way, with only two more weeks remaining. Boy, where did the time go?

This week, they’re enjoying painting and construction of items. Next week is horse week, with a guest speaker on Tuesday, and the creation of stick horses on Thursday.

This summer program continues until Aug. 1, so if you haven’t already got your child involved, talk to Jamie Wahl at 403-742-5986. They have a lot of fun and really enjoy the fun they are having together.

The Botha community will have the “Raise the Roof” event on Sept. 28 (Saturday), so make sure you mark that on your calendars, and come out for a lot of fun. The Domino band will be entertaining the group that day. Keep your eyes open for the time.

If you have any questions or would like to be on the board, contact Lorraine Hankins for more information. She can be reached at 403-742-1155 or

For the summer, the village office will be closed off and on, so please phone 403-742-5079 first before going to the office.

Bingo evening happens again Tuesday, July 23, starting at 7:15 p.m., so come down to the Botha Senior Centre that evening for a great time. Who knows … you could be the next big winner.

Don’t forget that coffee is on at the Botha Senior Centre every Wednesday morning. All are invited to a sociable start to the day.
