Floor curling gets off to a great start in Botha

By Louise Bellair

Hoping everyone had a great long Thanksgiving weekend.

We had great weather for this past week and hopefully the weather continues to be nice for farmers and their families that are busy harvesting day and night before the snow starts following.

The quilting club will be meeting again, Monday Oct. 25 at 9:30 a.m. at the seniors’ centre. The club meets the second and last Monday of each month.

Sympathy goes out to the family of Robert “Bob” Hankins, formerly of Botha. Bob passed away peacefully at the age of 84 years. The funeral was held Friday, Oct. 8 at the Botha Woodland Cemetery with a grave-side service. Reception and fellowship followed at the Botha Community Hall.

Just a reminder of the floor curling tournament on Oct. 14 starting at 9:30 a.m. Good luck to all that are participating. This takes place at the seniors’ centre. Then the regular floor curling continues every Thursday evening at 7:30 at the seniors’ centre.

Have a busy schedule? Why not take a brake and join them for a game of military whist. The next card game will be Monday Oct. 18 at 1:30 p.m. at the seniors’ centre. Hope to see everyone there. Card games continue every third Monday of the month.

Voting day is coming up, next Monday Oct. 18 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. So please everyone, take the time out and come cast your vote.

Anyone interested in a game of carpet bowling? Come out and join them for a game every Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Church services continue every Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. Come out and worship with us. Reverend Susan Boyer officiating.

Bingo time again! Bingo will be held Oct. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the seniors’ centre. Come out and have fun. Bingos are held every second Tuesday of the month.

Old-time dances continue on Sunday, Oct. 31 at 1:30 p.m. Please bring a salad or desert and come out and enjoy some great music. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The coffee pot is on! Every Wednesday morning, 10 a.m. is coffee hour. So come on out and enjoy a fresh cup of coffee for a full hour. These are held at the seniors’ centre.
