Botha community serves Father’s Day breakfast

Coming up this Friday evening, a dance is planned for Botha Hall, beginning at 7:30.

Coming up this Friday evening, a dance is planned for Botha Hall, beginning at 7:30. It’s also a pooled lunch, so all are asked to bring buns/sandwiches or pastries.

The “Peace Hills Country Ramblers” will be entertaining that evening, so come out for an exciting time with family and friends.

It will be the final old-time dance until the fall, so wishes go out for a great summer. The fall schedule will be announced later in the summer.

With this being the last month of this school year, the Botha School is sure hopping to try to get in all events. With finals and finishing off their regular schoolwork, swimming lessons, track meet, field trips, Father’s Day activities and the Grade 5 camping trip, things are sure busy.

Volunteers are still needed for the class trip, especially LPNs or Registered Nurses, so if you can help out the Grade 5 class, contact the school ASAP. All the help is much appreciated.

This is the final month that the Grade 5s will attend Botha School before they move onto the Stettler Middle School come fall, so let’s make this memorable and fun for all.

Just think … two more weeks and this school year is already over. Where did this year go? The last day of classes is June 26.

This Sunday, the Botha community is holding a Father’s Day breakfast, starting at 9 a.m. sharp at the Botha Hall. So make sure you bring your dad out for one fantastic breakfast and door prizes. They will be serving bacon, scrambled eggs, hash browns, ham, sausages, casseroles, fruit, coffee, tea, juice and the same surprise dishes they served at the Mother’s Day breakfast. It sounds yummy.

I wish all fathers out there a Happy Father’s Day, and hopefully your day turns out great. It’s time to relax and enjoy your day.

If you have family or community news, phone me at 403-742-5317 so we can include it in the Botha column.

Bingo happens Tuesday June 25, starting at 7:15 p.m. at the Botha Senior Centre. So be sure to come out and try your luck. Bingo continues every second Tuesday throughout the summer months.

Sunday church services are held at 9 a.m., and all are invited to join the worship. The times and dates for the July services are expected to be announced soon.

All are invited to join Botha friends and neighbours on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. at the seniors’ centre for a fresh cup of coffee. The coffee time continues all summer, at the same time, so all can enjoy refreshments and fellowship.
