We wish all students and staff a great summer break, and congratulations to the Grade 5 students moving on to a new school in the fall.

Botha School will offer a play-school for children ages three and up in the fall. For more information, phone the school at 403-742-5187.

If you haven’t returned all the Botha School library books, please do so.

The graduates of 2012 had another great evening and they would like to thank the residents of Botha for their continued support, as evidenced during the graduation celebrations held at the Botha Arena.

The Botha Community Centre has always received a donation from the grad committee that the community uses to better the village facility.

Jamie Wahl is excited to be hosting the playground program this summer, which will be held for four weeks during July and August. Jamie has several fun things planned for these events, but parents are also invited to share their ideas with Lorraine at

Property tax bills have been mailed out. If you haven’t received your bill, call the village office and it will be resent. Direct any questions to Don or Terry. All taxes are due July 31.

Summer hours for the village office mean it will be closed off and on. Check the announcement board on the office door for closures. It will also be on the phone message, as to the dates the office will be closed.
