BOTHA BOOSTER — Quilting Day is this coming Monday, Jan. 16 starting at 9:30 a.m. at the Senior Centre. So please come on out and join the group.

Bingo evening takes place again on Wednesday, Jan. 18 starting at 7:15 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Village Meeting takes place on the fourth Thursday of each month, so for this month it will be held on Jan. 26, starting at 7 p.m. So please come down and be a part of these important meetings in the community.

Coffee Hour is every Wednesday at 10 a.m., so we would like everyone to take time away from their busy schedules and come down for a cup or two of hot fresh coffee and some great conversations.

Carpet Bowling happens every Tuesday afternoon at 1 p.m. and it would be lovely if you could please join in.

Floor Curling happens every Thursday at 1 p.m., so come on down and have some fun playing a game with the other members and residents.

On Sunday, Jan. 29 is the Old Tyme Dance at the Botha Hall starting at 1:30 p.m. Black Velvet will be the entertaining band that afternoon, so you will not want to miss out. There will be a potluck luncheon at 5 p.m. and the committee would appreciate if everyone brought buns/sandwiches, salads or dessert with you to share at the event.

Looking for a reasonably priced space to rent. Call Shaun Derr at 403-742-4811 to reserve your spot. Botha Hall is a very nice hall to rent and competitively priced.

Head over to the ice arena and enjoy the ice. The arena is open daily from 9 a.m.–9 p.m., except school days when its open from 3-9 p.m.

So make sure you come down and have fun on the ice, while winter is still here.

The Northern Alberta Make a Wish Foundation and the Gord Bamford Fountain welcomed Jace Thorsteinson just recently as their newest Jr. Amassander. They proudly presented Jace with a Tuf Kat award. The Tuf Kat is a metal robotic goat as Jace is still recovering completely from his accident he had over a year ago.

This Tuf Kat is in the shape of a goat and does everything that a goat can do, or a calf so he can keep on practising his roping skills this winter.

Cold temperatures sure is hitting us again with only a few days’ break in between. This winter is the coldest we’ve had for at least a couple of winters now, so who knows what the rest of this winter is going to bring us. Spring, you can come anytime now please.
