Country Gems to entertain at Old Tyme next Sunday

The big vote for our village has ended with Botha opting out, and wanting to joining the County of Stettler as a hamlet.

BOTHA BOOSTER — The big vote for our village has ended with Botha opting out, and wanting to joining the County of Stettler as a hamlet. Botha will remain as Botha though, but changing its status from an autonomous village to a hamlet within the county, will be saving village residents taxes and also, will make the county more viable with an increase in population. The majority of Botha residents felt that was definitely the way to go, and voted as such.

The past Monday and Tuesday, May 22 and 23, was the 67th Annual Stettler District 4-H Show and Shine, with some of the Botha children taking part. You all did a excellent job showing of your animals and we are very proud of you all. The 4-H club is an excellent club to join, teaching children how to care for their livestock.

Mrs. Clara Fournier passed away peacefully at the age of 65 years. To mourn her passing was her husband, Gary, and their family. Our sympathies, thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time.

On a happier note, bingo evening was last night at the Senior Centre starting at 7:15 p.m., doors opened at 6:30 p.m. A lot of residents joined the evening with their bingo dobbers. Bingo takes place every second Wednesday evening at this time of the year.

Next Sunday, May 28 at 1:30 p.m. come on out to the Botha Hall and dance to the music from the Country Gems band. Everyone regardless of age are welcome to come and join in the fun, as there is no age restrictions. The theme for this dance is spring, so if you like to wear something according to this theme, please do so. The committee is asking everyone who attends to bring with them either buns/sandwiches, salads or dessert to share at the 5 p.m. luncheon that follows.

The next senior meeting will be held on Monday, June 5, starting at noon, so they are hoping all seniors will be able to attend. These meetings start with a potluck luncheon, so please plan to bring something with you to share.

Hopefully everyone had a great Victoria Day long-weekend, and were able to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Heard the water is still quite cold for water activities, so hopefully we get some nice weather to warm that up soon for people that enjoy the water.
