Botha switching gears for fall music, games

LOUISE BELLAIR

Botha Booster

The season’s last long weekend is upon us as Labour Day marks the end of summer, so hopefully everyone has a great weekend.

Then we will be moving into fall activities, with school opening next Tuesday, the day after Labour Day.

So, remember the safety rules and watch out for children in Botha.

A happy birthday wish goes out to Miranda Cowan today from her mother and father-in-law (Hazel and Murray Davidson) and the community. Hope you have a great day, Miranda.

Botha’s first old-time dance of the season is set for Friday, Sept. 9, starting at 7:30 p.m. The Country Gold Band will entertain for opening night. There will be a pot-luck snack, so participants are encouraged to bring food and contribute to a great evening.

Beginning on Sept. 13, Early Bird bingo is scheduled for Botha Senior Centre every second Tuesday evening.

Coffee hour is each Wednesday morning, starting at 10 o’clock at the senior centre. Everyone is invited.

Church services are held each Thursday at 7 p.m. All are welcome to join the worship.
