Daylight Saving is not too far away

All community members should try and head to the Village Office at 7 p.m. tomorrow evening, Feb. 23 and attend the monthly meeting.

BOTHA BOOSTER — All Botha residents and community members should try and head to the Village Office at 7 p.m. tomorrow evening, Feb. 23 and attend the monthly meeting, which is such an important part of the community.

St. Patrick’s Dance is scheduled to be on this Sunday, Feb. 26 starting at 1:30 p.m. at the Botha Hall. It is open to all ages, so please bring in your friends and family to shake a leg. There will also be a potluck luncheon at the event from 5 p.m., so the committee would appreciate it if you bring buns/sandwiches, salads or dessert with you to share at this time. The Ralph and Friends band will be entertaining the group that afternoon, so you will not want to miss out on all the fun. For more information please call Doug Haustein at 403-742-3994 or John Blonski at 403-574-2194.

To rent a reasonable priced hall for your special occasion, please call Shaun Derr at 403-742-4811. It’s a great hall to rent for your special occasion.

Quilting will take place on Monday, Feb. 27, starting at 9:30 a.m. So come on out and join this group. They do some lovely quilting, so don’t miss out on this.

The next monthly seniors’ meeting will be held on Monday, March 7 starting at noon. These meetings start out with a potluck luncheon so please bring something with you to share. Meeting follows right after the potluck.

Bingo evening is on Sunday, March 12 starting at 7:15 p.m. and doors open at 6:30 p.m. So come do come out and try your luck.

It’s hard to believe that March 12 is only a few weeks away and it will be Daylight Saving Time again when all the clocks jump ahead one hour. This means spring is on its way, which is really good, though the first day of spring is not until a week later on March 20.

How’s your calving going? Hopefully now we don’t get too cold of a weather, because the ranchers that have livestock are just walking into the season. So Old Man Winter please cooperate.
