East West Connection to rock Botha Old Thyme Dance Club this month

The theme for this dance is spring, and you should wear bright, spring colours if you can, to celebrate the season.

BOTHA BOOSTER — Congratulations go out to all the winners at the last Bingo evening that won hams. Way to go everyone. Hope these help out with some of your Easter preparations. The next Bingo evening will be on Wednesday, April 12, starting at 7:15 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome. Bingo evenings happen every second Wednesday evening.

This coming Sunday is Palm Sunday, so we are now moving into the Easter season, so please keep in mind why we celebrate Easter. There will now be Easter services going on in churches now, around the county, so please plan to attend one and remember the reason and celebrate Jesus’ dying and resurrection and ascending into heaven for all of us.

Tomorrow Thursday is Floor Curling, starting at 1 p.m. at the Seniors’ Centre, so come out and join in the game.

Carpet Bowling is every Wednesday afternoon at 1 p.m. Quilting Day is next Monday, April 10, starting at 9:30 a.m., so if you want to learn something new and be a part of this creative group, please join us. Quilting days are the second and last Mondays of each month.

Come on out on Monday, April 17 at 1 p.m. and join in a friendly game of cards. Everyone who comes out has a great time, and they would love to see you too.

The East West Connection Band will be playing at the Botha Hall on Sunday, April 30, at 1 p.m. for the Old Tyme Dance Club, so please attend this event and dance to your heart’s content. The theme for this dance is spring, and you should wear bright, spring colours if you can, to celebrate the season. Everyone regardless of age is welcome to attend and have fun.

In March the students had a very busy month, though February was no less hectic with grades 3 and 4 finishing up the year at the rink with Broomball. They also had successful ski days and hockey days. The students celebrated anti-bullying on Feb. 22 and honoured the Pink Shirt Day by wearing pink shirts and showing solidarity. The grades 4-6 students also participated in a 3-3 basketball game in Stettler. Then they went to Brownfield for a game and they represented our little village with great effort and sportsmanship. They would like to thank all the parents that volunteered so far this year to help out with all our field trips. Without your help these trips can’t be achieved, so thank you everyone.

This week all students and staff are enjoying their spring break, so hopefully everyone is ready to hit the books again on Monday, April 3. Instead of an Easter break, the students have a good, week long spring break instead, which works out well for everyone.

Don’t forget to register all your kindergarten children and playschool students this evening, April 5 from 4 to 7 p.m. for the next academic year. Please bring along your child’s birth certificate as it is important.

Let’s hope everyone had a great April Fool’s Day and no one got caught in a joke played on them.
