Botha Christmas concert this week

Botha School back in on January 8

Ready for the School Christmas Concert which takes place this coming Wednesday 20, starting at 7p.m.? Hopefully everyone can make it out to this exciting concert as both the students and staff have worked extremely hard to perform a great show for you. The admittance to this will be a nonperishable food item and there for you to place your items in and they will going to the food bank. This would very much be appreciated. This concert is open to everyone, so make sure you come out for this great show. Maybe Santa will show up later that evening to surprise all the children, who knows.

The last day of school for the students and staff will be this coming Friday until the 8th of January when the 2018 school year will start up again to finish off this year’s school year. For this they usually head for a movie so if you have time and would like to help out at this it would very much be appreciated. The staff at the school would like to wish all the students a very enjoyable Christmas break and hope Santa is good to everyone.

Bingo will be cancelled now until the first Wednesday of January starting at 7:15 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m. So grab your dabbers that evening and head to the Botha Senior Centre, who knows you could be one of the lucky winners. The bingo committee however would like to wish everyone a fantastic Christmas and the best of everything to you and yours in 2018.

There are two exciting events also taking place for New Year’s Eve for everyone to come out and enjoy. First The Old Tyme Dance will be held the evening of December 31, starting at 5 p.m. till 10 p.m. This starts out with a catered meal instead of a pot luck lunch this time so hopefully everyone was able to get your tickets for this already. The Country Gentleman will be entertaining the crowd that evening, so make sure you grab your tickets and head there on New Year’s Eve.

The second event happening that evening will be the Botha Community Centre New Year’s Eve, Canada 150 Family Fun Time, so also keep this in mind. This is free to attend and will be starting at 3 p.m. at the Botha arena with sleigh rides, skating, music , a bonfire and board games. Then at 5 p.m. there will be a wiener roast, hot chocolate and street hockey (bring your own stick). Then at 8:30 p.m. to end the evening off there will be fireworks, what a exciting time for all. There also will be prizes given out for the best New Year’s Eve hat, best noisemaker and also the best Canada 150 outfit. So keep these in mind and come on out for a great evening at both of these, everyone is invited. Great way to enter the New Year.

January 2, is the first senior meeting for 2018, starting at noon sharp. This starts out with a pot luck luncheon so please make up one of your favorite dishes and bring it with you to share at this time. The meeting follows right after the pot luck. Hopefully all seniors will be able to attend.

Both floor curling and the coffee hour will continue throughout the Christmas holidays that I know of. Coffee time every Wednesday at 10 a.m. and floor curling every Thursday at 1 pm. so come on out and join in both of these.

The ice arena will not be open for a few days yet due to all the nice weather we have been having in the last two weeks, so please keep checking with the Prairie Oyster Restaurant and they will keep you inform on what’s happening.

In closing I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and hope Santa is good to everyone this year. Drive safely if your traveling at all please and stay safe.
