Everyone is welcome to come and worship with the members of the Botha United Church at their Christmas Eve Service at 5 p.m.
A big “thank you” goes out to all who attended the annual Christmas potluck supper and also they would like to thank the Erskine United Choir for coming out and for everyone that came out to listen to their music on Dec 12. It was great.
The regular service is on Sunday mornings at 11 a.m., with Reverend Susan Bowyer officiating.
Come out on Wednesday Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. and hear the Botha School students putting on their Christmas concert. The students and staff have worked very hard to put on this great program so come one and all and take in this great activity.
Donations for this will be going towards the Stettler Food Bank. Then on Friday Dec. 17, all students and the staff will be dismissed for their Christmas holidays. I would like to wish everyone a great holiday season, and all the children to have a fun holiday. Hope Santa Claus is good to everyone.
I would like to express a big apology about the way I advertised the Botha community news last week. I was under the understanding they were looking for volunteers, but they are looking for nominations of names for the Youth and Life Achievement Night. This event will be held at Nevis this year on Jan. 21.
If you would like to nominate someone’s name please contact the Botha Community Centre by Dec. 15, by e-mailing email@example.com or by snail mail Box 123 Botha A.B. T0C-0N0. Sorry about this inconvenience.
Free on Dec. 20? Come on out everyone and take a brake from your Christmas hassle and play a game of military whist at 1:30 p.m. Everyone is invited to this activity and the cards start flying at 1:30. This is held at the Botha Seniors’ Centre.
Then on Tuesday Dec. 21, at 7:15 p.m., come on out to the Botha Seniors’ Centre. This will be the last Bingo game for 2010, so come on out to Early Bird Bingo and have a great time. Who knows you could end up winning and have some extra money for the last minute shopping.
Free on Boxing Day anyone? If you would like to attend and just have a fun time from all the Christmas activities come out at 1:30 p.m. and enjoy some great music with the Old-Time Dance Club. Please bring out some left over Christmas baking or a salad, and come out and take in this activity. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Also could you please phone me by Friday Dec. 17 at noon with any news, as I have a very busy weekend coming up and will not be around to answer the phone. This would very much be appreciated. Thank you.
