Election looms

Botha Booster

By Linda Grams

A good time was had by all who attended the playground program at the Botha hall, we had a good turn out and a great time learning new games and making crafts.

Work continues at the Botha school, on the scheduled improvements.Otherwise things have been pretty quite as people take time for vacations.

Tuesday, Aug. 4 will be the next bingo, doors open at 6:30 p.m. There are no church services at the Botha United Church in July, they will resume Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. starting Aug. 6.

Don’t forget the 100th anniversary service at 11 a.m. on Aug. 16.

The Village may be having a by-election on July 27 if more than one person puts forward their name to take Jean Jackson’s seat on the village council. If so voting will take place at the Botha Hall.

The Botha Community Centre STEP student is working hard, we will be concentrating on the painting of the hall exterior if Mother Nature allows. Also mark Sept. 26 on your calender as we will be hosting a “ Raise the Roof” fund raiser to help with the cost of improvements to the arena.
