Dancing season is back in Botha, start-up on Sept. 10

By Louise Bellair

With summer winding down, everything is starting to look like fall, school starting up again for another year and the birds flocking together, and cooler nights… Hopefully, everyone had a great summer and a great Labour Day weekend with family and friends.

The Village of Botha is really looking good. Thank you everyone for your hard work.

Could you please help me out with any one’s birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, etc. coming up so we can put them in the column? This would very much be appreciated.

On Monday, Sept. 6, there will be a potluck lunch at noon at the Seniors’ Centre. Meeting to follow.

Everyone, come listen to some great music. The old time dances are starting again for another year. The first one is scheduled for Sept. 10 at 8 p.m. at the Botha hall. There will be a potluck dinner, so please bring something and come and do some dancing.

Then, there will be another dance on Sept. 26 at 1:30 p.m. Please bring a salad or desert. Come out and enjoy the music from the band called “Randy Jones and the Reflectors.” Dances are held every second Friday and last Sunday of the month. Hope to see everyone there.

The next Botha Community Centre meeting will be held on Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. These meetings are held at the Botha hall. If anyone wants to volunteer with anything, please give Lorraine a phone call at 403-742-1155. This would very much appreciated. There will not be a “Raise the Roof” activity this year, which was decided on at the meeting on Aug. 30.

However a person can look forward to the “movie at the park” in September 2011. The roof is getting tined and hopefully more repairs to the inside fairly soon. The hall has a new sound system now, so come hear it at any function. It sounds great.

Would like to welcome Mitch and Jo-Laine Hammond and family to Botha. Mr Hammond is the new principal for the Botha School.

Take a brake from your busy schedule and meet friends at the Botha Seniors’ Centre on Wednesday’s mornings for a great cup of coffee and friendly conversation. Everyone is welcome to participate.

How about every second Tuesday come out and have a great and relaxing time over a friendly game of Bingo. The next Bingo is Sept. 14 at 7:30 p.m at the Seniors’ Centre. Hopefully see everyone there.

The ball diamond will be closing for the season at the end of September.With only about a month left or so, how about a friendly game of ball. Get a team together and come and have fun. For reservations for the ball diamond please contact Ken or Wendy at 403-742-8184.

Church services continue for the month of September with Reverend Susan Boyer officiating. These services are held every Thursday evening at 7 p.m. Come out and worship with us.
