Busy December schedule for school and community

It’s hard to believe another month has gone by so quickly and December is soon upon us

It’s hard to believe another month has gone by so quickly and December is soon upon us, which brings us closer to another festive season. With this month soon ending so quickly, so does the end of hunting season, so hopefully all you hunters out there were able to fill all your tags and get all the game you wanted.

With December upon us, it brings another busy schedule for us all. With Christmas, there is the hustle and bustle of everyone getting ready for the big day, Christmas. It also brings another busy month for the staff and students at our Botha School, with preparation for a Christmas concert, craft and activities. They also have their regular schoolwork, so it will be another busy month for them.

Talking about Christmas, the Turkey Bingo will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 4, starting at 7:15 p.m. at the Senior Centre. It will be quite the exciting evening as the jackpot (which has not been won for quite a while) is still up for grabs, and also the turkey winnings. You could be the lucky one winning the jackpot and also taking a turkey home with you. So you cannot afford to miss this exciting evening — hope to see you there.

A big congratulations goes out to the big winner of the loonie pot last Tuesday, Nov. 20. He was able to take $60 or so home with him. Way to go and congratulations.

Monday, Dec. 3, is the monthly Botha meeting, so hopefully all seniors can make it out to this. The meeting starts at 11:30 a.m. with a pot luck luncheon, so please bring something with you to share.

The next old-time dance will be held on Friday, Dec. 14, at 7:30 p.m. This will be their Christmas dance and the entertaining band for that evening will be the Country Gold North Band. So, great music, a great crowd and tons and tons of fun, so make sure you make it out for this. There will be a pooled lunch, so please bring buns/sandwiches or pastry with you to share. There will be no old-time dance on Sunday, Dec. 30, due to the New Year’s Eve dance instead on Monday, Dec. 31. Hopefully, this does not cause any inconvenience for anyone. But the New Year’s Eve dance sounds fantastic. If you have any questions relating to any of the dances, please contact Doug or Bernadette Haustein at 403-742-3994.

Don’t forget coffee time at the Senior Centre every Wednesday at 10 a.m. and Carpet at 1:30 p.m. Also, floor curling every Thursday at 7 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend all these events, so why not join in — they would be happy to see everyone out to all of these.

With December coming so close, we are able to see a lot more snow coming our way, so if you would like your driveways done, please contact the village office or one of the members.
