By Louise Bellair

With Halloween coming up and kids of all ages, getting excited, there are several sales on now, and a lot of Halloween activities coming up so get yourself ready for the fun, and please drive carefully, and watch our for our Halloweeners.

The weather has been not too bad for the farmers to finish off their harvesting, a few cool days and cool evenings, but hopefully it will continue until harvest is done before Old man Winter sets in.

The next old-time dance will be held on Sunday, Oct. 31 at 1:30 p.m. So, ladies, please bring a salad or desert and come out and have some fun. These dances are held at the Botha Hall.

Bingo will be held Tuesday, Oct. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the seniors’ centre. So come out and enjoy a game.

Come out Wednesdays at 10 a.m. and enjoy a fresh cup of coffee with us at the seniors’ centre. It’s a great hour spent, very relaxing. Then Wednesday afternoon’s at 1:30 p.m., come out and enjoy a game of carpet bowling. Everyone is welcome.

Church services continue every Sunday at 1 p.m. Reverend Susan Boyer is officiating.

On Nov. 6, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. will be our Botha Christmas Craft at the hall. Tables are very limited, so please call Marsha at 403-742-2559 to reserve a table.
