Bingo Tuesday (on Aug. 28) is expected to be an exciting evening at the Botha Senior Centre.

The 2012-13 school year begins soon. The first school bell goes off Sept. 4, right after Labour Day weekend.

The farmers are extra busy in their fields and the gardeners are taking their veggies in before the fall weather arrives.

If there are any birthdays, anniversaries, baby announcements or other activities or events coming up soon, or has happened in the Botha area, contact me at 403-742-5317 so we can add them to this column.

Congratulations to my daughter, Samantha Bellair and Ryley on their wedding this Saturday.
