Christmas is coming to fast to Botha

Remember Dec. 22 is last day of school

Botha Christmas School Concert is next Wednesday 20 evening starting at 7 p.m. This will be held at the Botha Hall, so make sure you head there, and take in this special event. They are asking everyone who attends to bring with you a nonperishable item as there will be a place to place these items which will be donated to the food bank in town. This is going to be a fantastic evening, and who knows, Santa himself might show up at the end of the evening.

Then Friday 22 is the last day of school for this 2017 school year. That day there usually is a movie for everyone to enjoy and be ready for holidays. If you have some time that afternoon and would like to volunteer some time to help out please feel free to come and join in, this would very much be appreciated. This will be the end of the Milk Carton Challenge for December, so it will be interesting to see what everyone comes up with.

A very well liked and known gentleman around our area will be celebrating his birthday this coming Saturday 16, Mr. Max Potter. So hopefully you have a fantastic birthday Max.

Coffee continues throughout the holiday season starting at 10 a.m. every Wednesday morning. So hopefully everyone can take a break away from your schedules and come join the group every Wednesday morning at the Senior Centre.

Floor Curling is another activity that continues throughout the holiday season that I know of. They meet every Thursday at 1 p.m. at the senior centre for a fun time. So please feel free to join them in a game.

A cancellation I would like everyone to take notice of is there will be no more bingo evenings now until the third of January. This is because it is getting to close to Christmas and everyone is busy and plus the Christmas concert is that evening, so hopefully everyone can come out and enjoy that instead.

At the last bingo evening December 6 we had a fantastic gathering of people that evening, which would be nice if it continued through every bingo evening. Congratulations goes out to all who won turkeys that evening, way to go. So the group would also like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a very profitable New Year, and they hope to see everyone back the evening of January 6.

The Quilting Club has also broke up already until the beginning of January, and they to would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and the best of everything in 2018.They hope to see everyone back on January 8th starting at 9:30 a.m.
