Botha New Years Eve events rescheduled

Extreme cold on Dec. 31 necessitated rescheduling

Welcome to 2018. Here’s hoping the holiday season was great for everyone and that Santa Clause was extremely good to everyone.

As most of us know the evening that the Botha Community Centre had planned for New Year’s Eve, a fantastic outdoor activities with fireworks, was cancelled due to the extreme cold weather we were experiencing. But they plan on holding these events at a later date, so they will let us all know when this night will take place instead. They apologize for this but it was just too cold on New Year’s Eve to hold any outdoor activities.

School and also the Quilting Club starts up again on Monday 8. They would like to say the school zones will be in effect again, so slow down. Here’s hoping all staff and students had a great holiday.

Quilting starts up at 9:30 a.m. that morning at the senior centre, so hopefully everyone can join them that day.

Floor curling is every Thursday afternoon starting at 1 p.m. and they are hoping you’ll come out for a game or two with them. Everyone is welcome to join in.

Bingo restarted again on January 3rd, and congratulations go out to all the winners that evening. The next bingo evening will be on Jan. 17, so grab your items and held over on over. The bingo balls start rolling at 7:15 p.m., and doors open at 6:30. Everyone is welcome to join in.

The ice arena is now open for your enjoyment, so make sure you purchase your yearly pass and come on out and join your friends for a great time on the ice.

On Sunday 28, the Old Tyme Dance Club will be starting at 1:30 p.m. with the Black Velvet Band that afternoon. The theme for this one will be their Valentine Dance, so please feel free to wear something red in color for that afternoon.

Robert Burns Celebration is coming up real soon, and it’s a great program to attend. This celebration will be held on Saturday 20 at the Hub. Tickets are available at Well’s Furniture and/or from Teresa Fisher. Also for more information please contact Teresa Fisher at 403-742-4057 or her cell at 403-740-5556.

Then on February (Valentines Day) , Jimmy the Janitor (comedian) will be coming to Botha, what a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. To purchase tickets go to the Board of Trades here in Stettler, Wells Furniture or one of the Botha Community Members. There are only 225 tickets available so grab your tickets ASAP, as it’s going to be a great event to take your sweetheart for a fantastic evening. Besides the program there will be a light supper and also a dance. So you will not want to miss this great event with your honey that evening.
