Come on sun, where are you?

Hopefully we get better and brighter weather soon; it’s spring after all.

BOTHA BOOSTER — Make sure you come to the Botha Hall this coming Sunday, April 30, at 1:30 p.m. and dance to the music from the East West Connection Band. They are a great band and you will not want to miss out. The committee would like everyone to bring with them either buns/sandwiches, salads or dessert to share with the group that afternoon at 5 p.m., when the luncheon is served. The theme for this dance is western, so wear something appropriate. Everyone is invited to attend no matter how old or young; it’s a community event so come on out and have fun.

The Village Office meeting is this evening, April 27 at 7 p.m., and we are hoping we will have a good turnout.

Tonight is Bingo evening starting at 7:15 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., so grab your bingo dobbers and come out for a great time. Who knows, you could be one of the lucky winners. Bingo happens every second Wednesday evening.

On Monday, May 1, starting at noon sharp is the seniors’ monthly meeting and hopefully all seniors will be able to attend. There is a potluck luncheon right before the meeting, so please make up one of your favourite dishes and bring it along to share at this time. All seniors are welcome to attend.

Seeing as rodeo season is right around the corner again and people are starting to practice, getting ready for the big season, I have some great news to share with everyone. Mr. Jace Thorsteinson is a junior ambassador for a company called TufKats and owns one himself, which he uses for practice. This company makes three different types of TufKats, which are the TufKats themself, the Tuf Goat and the GTS (ground training system), which Jace recommends. These machines are fully life size, and are a fantastic way to practice as they never tire out and you can practice as long as you wish.These products have helped Jace keep practicing his roping while recovering from his injuries, so they are amazing items to buy. For more information please call Jace at 403-740-3574 (after school hours) or weekends, or feel free to Facebook him. He’s planning on seeing everyone out for the rodeos after they start up again.

Then the Botha Arena Grill is continuing hours of business and will be open all summer from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. What I’ve heard is that they are a fantastic place to get yourself a meal, so do plan on stopping there. They apparently have great prices too.

Talk about strange weather, which has been really fluctuating from rather warm weather to outright snow this past week, so hopefully we get better and brighter weather soon; it’s spring after all.

Also, the gravel roads are getting muddy and rutty but with more sunshine and better weather, they too will take a turn soon and the grater can get out and get these roads straightened out.
