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.

If you’re into quilting, grab your fabric ASAP, as quilting will resume on Monday, Sept. 24, at 9:30 a.m. It takes place at the Botha Senior Centre, and everyone is welcome.

The Old-time Dance Club dances start up soon. They’re held in the Botha Hall every second Friday evening and the last Sunday of each month. The first dance is scheduled for Friday, Sept. 14, starting at 7:30 p.m. Enjoy the music of the Peace Hills Country Ramblers, and please bring something to share for the pot-luck lunch.

Another activity set to begin soon is floor curling (Thursday evenings) and carpet bowling (every Wednesday afternoon). All are invited.

The Botha seniors’ meeting, a pot-luck gathering, is scheduled for Sept. 4 at 11:30 a.m.
