Botha Senior Centre busy with winter fun

What an exciting time last night, with the turkey Bingo happening.

What an exciting time last night, with the turkey Bingo happening. It was a great time for all, and congratulations to all the winners. The next Bingo will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 18, starting at 7:15 p.m., at the Botha Senior Centre. Hopefully, everyone can join us in the excitement of the evening. Bingos are held every second Tuesday evening.

Another great and fun event happening next Friday (Dec. 18) will be the Old Time Christmas dance. This starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Botha Hall, with the Country Gold North Band entertaining the crowd that evening. Sounds like a full filled evening for all ages, so don’t want to miss out. There will be a pooled lunch there, so please bring buns/sandwiches or pastry with you for all to share.

There will be no Sunday dance for this month as the following day is Dec. 31 and there will be a New Year’s Eve dance than. So talk to one of the members now to get tickets for the dance. Sounds like one fun evening and a great way to bring in a new year, with family and friends in attendance.

For any of these dances, contact Doug or Bernadette Haustein at 403-742-3994, with all your questions or concerns.

Come out for a great time Monday, Dec. 10, at 9 a.m. for another day of quilting. These are held at the Botha Senior Centre, and everyone is invited to attend. Even if you have never quilted before, please attend, as they would love to teach you.

In this cold weather, why not come out Wednesday mornings for a hot and refreshing cup of coffee with them at the Senior Centre. These start at 10 a.m. and they would love to see everyone come out for this. It’s a great way to visit and socialize with your neighbours and friends.

Then, every Wednesday afternoon, starting at 1:30 p.m., join your friends and neighbours for a friendly game of carpet bowling. These two are held at the Senior Centre. It’s a great way to exercise and socialize with everyone.

Then, every Thursday evening, come back to the Senior Centre for a friendly game of floor curling. It’s also a great way to keep in shape and mingle with the community. These games start at 7 p.m. and are a lot of fun. Everyone is welcome to join in these games.

With Christmas coming, let’s all remember the reason for the season (the birthday of Jesus) and come out every Sunday at 11 a.m. and take in Rev. Susan Bowyer’s service. It’s a great way to worship and praise our Lord. Everyone is welcome to attend.
