Botha’s playground program fills days and weeks for kids

Well, we’re into another month and this year is going by quickly, too. Before we know it, the snow will be falling again.

Well, we’re into another month and this year is going by quickly, too. Before we know it, the snow will be falling again.

This coming Monday is a special day for a very special person in the Botha area. John Hankins will be celebrating another special birthday. Happy birthday, John.

Botha Summer Playground Program has now officially started and it sure sounds like a fun activity to attend.

The program started yesterday and will be going Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for part of July and August from 9:30 a.m. to noon those days. Children three to 12 years of age are invited to attend these activities.

Then, every Wednesday from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. will be another special activity for children ages six to 12. It’s the project afternoon, where the children will be making different items.

Children are invited to stay for lunch, with their bag lunches, for both groups if parents would like them to do so.

With any more questions or concerns, please call Jamie Wahl at 403-742-5986 or e-mail her at, or feel free to message Jamie at the “Botha School Playground Program” page on Facebook.

Rev. Susan Bowyer is now on her holidays, so there will be no more church services until Aug. 9 at 7 p.m. Then the services will continue every Thursday throughout the month of August. Hope you have a great holiday, Reverend.

Got time at about 10 a.m. every Wednesday? Why not stop at the Senior Centre then and have a coffee with them. They would love to see everyone come out.

Jean Jackson and family will be having a family reunion (Jackson) the weekend of July 14 and 15. Hopefully, the weather is great and everything goes well for them.

The next Bingo evening is Tuesday, July 17, starting at 7:15 p.m. So gather your Bingo markers and friends together and come out for one fantastic evening of fun.

Before you leave for holidays, please remember to stop by the village office and pay your land taxes. All taxes are due by July 31. Thank you.

For anyone going on holidays this month, hopefully you receive nice weather, have a great time and get lots of memories.

We also hope everyone had a great long weekend and a fantastic Canada Day.

I would like to wish my mother (Ada Weller) a special 85th birthday. Hope you had a great day, Mom.
