A special birthday wish goes out to Murray Davidson for this Friday. Hope you have a great  day, Murray.

On Monday, Nov. 26, there will be another quilting day at the Botha Senior Centre. So bring your quilting items with you for a great time. The sessions start at 9 a.m. and everyone is invited.

Military Whist games scheduled for Monday, Nov. 19, have been cancelled until further notice.

The Botha School is having a Read and Rhyme program, which runs in the ECS classroom every Tuesday from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.

This program is being offered by the Stettler Public Library and is free of charge.

Thanks to the library for doing this. If you have any questions, contact Gayle at the school at 403-742-5187.

We have received a lot of snow from Old Man Winter in the past week, with the temperatures dropping. If you would like your snow removed from your driveway, contact the village office or a council member, if after hours.

The community centre is getting ready to flood the ice at the Botha Arena again, so get your passes now. Family and subsidized rates are available.

When you pay your fees, you will receive skate tags and your name will be entered to win a prize. For more information, contact Lorraine Hankins at 403-742-1155.

The large jackpot has not yet gone, so it’s still up for grabs, so make sure you come out Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 7:15 p.m. and try your luck.

Bingo is held at the Botha Senior Centre every second Tuesday evening.

All are invited to come out Sundays at 11 a.m. and hear Rev. Susan Bowyer’s service. It’s a great way to worship.
