Congratulations go out to all the winners of the turkeys at our Turkey Bingo held on Tuesday, Dec. 9. The next Bingo evening will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 6 2015, starting at 7:15 p.m. They wish everyone has a fantastic Christmas and a excellent New Year’s and they are hoping to see everyone back on the next Bingo night.

On Dec. 17, starting at 7 p.m. make sure you come out to the Botha Hall, to attend the school’s annual Christmas concert, which they are really working hard on to perform for everyone to see. The admittance to this great show is a food donation to the food bank, so please bring a non-perishable item with you.

Starting Dec. 19 to Jan. 5 is the winter break, which everyone has worked so hard to achieve. They all deserve a rest, as come January, skating and skiing trips will be in the schedule.

A form has also been sent out to all parents requiring after school programming. If you have not sent your form back yet, please contact Mrs. McMillion at the school, (403-742-5187), a.s.a.p.

The School Staff is sending out a big thank you to everyone that sent in shoe boxes for the Operation Christmas Child this year. There were 38 boxes sent out this year from this school, so thank you, everyone.

The floor curling club meets every Wednesday and Thursday now at 1p.m., due to the lack of interest in carpet bowling. Floor curling is happening two days per week now instead of one. So make sure you come out these days and join in games with your friends and neighbors. They would love to see you join them.

Quilting takes place Monday, Dec. 22, starting at 9:30 a.m. at the seniors’ centre. Please join the ladies that day for a great time, and do some quilting or finish off the items you have been working on for that special someone for their Christmas gift. They would love to see you join them.

There will be no Old Time Dance the last Sunday of December as they are holding a New Year’s Eve Dance instead. So please contact Doug Haustein at 403-742-3994 to find out all the exciting happenings at this event. It will be a great way to send the old year (2014) out and welcome 2015 in with family and friends. The “Country Gems Band” will be the entertaining band for the exciting evening. So make sure you get a hold of Doug a.s.a.p. and find out what’s happening. You don’t want to miss out.

Hey kids, during your Christmas Break, why not head down to the arena and go skating with your friends. Get your parents to phone Shaun Derr at 403-742-4811 to find out the costs and hours, the arena will be open for your enjoyment. The committee is also looking for someone to teach skating lessons, so if you’re interested and have some free time, please phone Shaun and discuss things with him. They would love to see you join them.

Don’t forget to take a break out of winter weather and join the group for hot fresh coffee at the seniors’ centre every Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. They would love to see you all join them.
