Countdown continues for Botha’s seasonal dances

The Botha committee extends thanks to everyone who came out to the multifamily garage sale last weekend.

The Botha committee extends thanks to everyone who came out to the multifamily garage sale last weekend. The weather was lovely and there was a great turnout.

This coming Tuesday, come out to the Botha Senior Centre for an exciting game of Bingo. The games begin at 7:15 every second Tuesday evening.

Bingo will continue throughout the summer at the same time and day, so make sure you mark your calendars for those dates.

This Friday, come out to the Botha Hall for another great evening of entertainment. The “Ralph and Friends Band” will provide entertainment. There’s a pooled lunch, so everyone is asked to bring buns/sandwiches or pastry to share with everyone.

There’s no age limit on who’s permitted to attend the dances. There will only be two more dances left until they take their summer break. Those remaining dates are Sunday, May 26, and Friday, June 14.

Mother’s Day is this coming Sunday, so make sure you bring your mom and come out for a fantastic breakfast at the Botha Hall. It runs from 9 a.m. to noon. They will serve scrambled eggs, bacon, ham, hash browns, sausages, casseroles, fruit, coffee, tea, juice and fruit. They plan to add two new dishes to the menu this year. It all sounds really yummy, so make sure you don’t miss out on the excitement.

This coming Monday, come out for one of the last quilting days before the summer break. They meet at 9 a.m. at the Botha Senior Centre, and everyone is more than welcome to join a great day of creativity.

Then that evening at the Botha Hall, starting at 6 p.m., join the Botha community monthly meeting. Everyone is more than welcome to attend these meetings and also to join the group. The organizers always appreciate feedback on how you think Botha should be run, and they would love to see you attend.

For more information on those meetings, call Lorraine Hankins at 403-742- 1155.

With May here, a big and happy event happens this month. It’s graduation time for all who are graduating this year. People are getting ready for their big day, which takes place May 25 for Botha. Keep your eyes open for those special events.

Soccer registration is soon on tap. For more information, call Marsha Mailer at 403-742 2559 or Lorraine Hankins at 403-742-1155.

Church services continue until the end of June at 9 a.m. each Sunday.
