Dances swing into action for another old-time year

The first old-time dance of the season was a great time last Friday.

The first old-time dance of the season was a great time last Friday.

More great bands are lined up to entertain the crowds. The next dance will be held on Sunday, Sept. 30, at 1:30 p.m., with the Country Gem Band entertaining the group that afternoon.

For the pot-luck menu, I understand now that for that any favourite dish is welcome to be brought to the Friday night dances, but for the Sunday dances please don’t bring any meat or sandwiches, as the meat is provided for the afternoon dances only.

This coming Monday, Sept. 24, the Quilting Club is starting up for another year. They meet at 9:30 p.m. at the Botha Senior Centre and everyone is welcome to attend. Even if you have never quilted before and would like to learn, please attend, as they would love to teach you. The Quilting Club meets the second and last Monday of each month.

Sympathy goes out to the family of Sherry Schultz, who passed away peacefully just recently. Our prayers and thoughts are with you at this time of loss.

Come on out next Tuesday, Sept. 25, at 7:15 p.m. to the Botha Senior Centre for another great evening of Early Bird Bingo. The jackpot hasn’t been won for quite a while, so it’s really climbing.

The loonie pot, on the other hand, was won the last Tuesday evening, so congratulations to the winner.

Also, a big thank-you to everyone that spoke up to become a Bingo caller. It’s very much appreciated. If anyone else is interested, please talk to Brenda.

Good news! Floor curling and carpet bowling is starting up again for another great year. The first day for carpet bowling will be Wednesday, Oct. 3, at 1:30 p.m. at the Botha Senior Centre. Everyone is invited to come out for another great year of fun and exercise.

Then, starting Thursday, Oct. 4, beginning at 7 p.m., come on out and take in floor curling. It’s a fun game and everyone is welcome to come out.

On Thursday, Oct. 25, get yourself a team together and come on out at 9 a.m. to the Botha Floor Curling Tournament at the Botha Senior Centre. Everyone is invited to participate.

To enter a team or have any questions, please contact Robbie Kary at 403-742-2116 as soon as possible.

Military Whisk will resume Oct. 15 for another great year. Military Whisk did not run last year due to the lack of interest, so they’re willing to start the game up for another try.

Let’s keep the interest up and come on out. If you have never played Military Whisk before and enjoy playing cards, come on out, as participants would enjoy teaching you the game.

Military Whisk will take place Monday afternoons, starting at 1:30 p.m. at the Botha Senior Centre.
