Breakfast on tap for Father’s Day

Come on out to the very last Old-Time Dance until fall on Friday, June 14, at 7:30 p.m.

Come on out to the very last Old-Time Dance until fall on Friday, June 14, at 7:30 p.m. The Peace Hills Country Ramblers are the entertaining band for the evening. So make sure you make it out for the fun filled evening. The fall dances will be advertised in the paper when they come back after the summer break, so keep your eyes open for the start-up time. They wish everyone a great summer, and hope to see everyone back in the fall.

Bingo evening happens again at 7:15 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11, at the Senior Centre. The jackpot has not been won for quite a while now, so make sure you come on out and try out your luck. Who knows you could be the next big winner. Bingo continues throughout the summer months, on the same day (every second Tuesday) and at the same time. These are held at the Botha Senior Centre.

Sympathy goes out to the Bell family on the loss of Mr. Bell (Betty Bell’s husband), who passed away suddenly on May 25. Also sympathy goes out to Donna McKay and family on the loss of Donna’s father, who passed away suddenly this past week to. Our prayers and thoughts are with both families at this time of loss.

Come on in to the Botha Senior Centre every Wednesday at 10 a.m. for coffee. They would love to see everyone join them. Coffee time continues throughout the summer months, also.

Father’s Day happens on the 16th of June, and the Botha Committee is holding a Father’s Day Breakfast at the Botha Hall, starting at 9 a.m. So make sure you bring your dad out, and come out and enjoy a very delicious breakfast and also enter for the door prices.

Church services continue at 9 a.m. every Sunday until the end of June. Come out and worship with them and hear Rev. Susan Bowyer.

We have had rain on and off all week, and apparently they are calling for the same this coming week, so hopefully it turns out nice pretty soon and dries up some for the Grade 5 camp, which is coming up soon.

From what I heard, there were two exciting events that happened in the Botha Area this weekend. Friday evening there was fireworks spotted just north of Botha, then Saturday afternoon a funnel cloud was spotted just east of Botha which never came down all the way, which is good, but nevertheless, it was still spotted.

With spring and going on summer, there is always cleanup to do, so here are the transfer station hours for our little village. Tuesdays from 1-5:30 p.m. and then again every Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

So, if you have any garbage you need to get rid of, please bring it out to Botha Transfer Station at these times, thank you. Let us all keep Botha looking neat and clean.
