BOTHA BOOSTER — Make sure you come out to the Senior Centre this afternoon at 1 p.m. for a friendly game of carpet bowling. We would love to see everyone join us.

Then tomorrow at 1 p.m. is floor curling time and a great way to spend a Thursday afternoon.

Bingo evening happens again on Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 7:15 p.m. and doors open at 6:30 p.m., so grab your dabbers and come out and join in all the excitement. A big congratulations goes out to the winner of the Lonnie Pot at the last Bingo game on Feb. 1.

A very special guy from our village is celebrating his special day this Saturday, Feb. 11. Happy birthday Trevor (Wedrick), here’s hoping you have a fantastic one. Also, I would like to wish my own granddaughter (Willow Bellair) a very happy first birthday for this coming Friday, Feb. 10, happy birthday sweetheart.

On Monday, Feb. 20 is a great afternoon starting at 1 p.m. Come on out and join in a friendly game of cards with your friends. We are hoping everyone attends so that we can keep these card games up and running.

Village Office meeting is on Thursday evening, Feb. 23, starting at 7 p.m. We’re hoping everyone can attend, because meetings like these are important and help to keep the communication going.

The last Sunday of the month, Feb. 26 make sure you come to the Botha Hall for some great entertainment by the band “Ralph and Friends” at the Old Tyme Dance Club. There is no age limit, so come on out and enjoy the music. They are a fantastic band and you will not want to miss out. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The theme of this dance will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, so please wear something green.

It’s been a little over a year since Jace Thorsteinson had his tragic accident and talk about a strong, very determined young gentleman. We are all very proud of him. Jamie, Jace’s mother says they have been really busy still with therapies for Jace, which takes place five days per week. Jace attends school full time as a student and has been roping three to four times per week, which is practice and therapy together. Jace is very proud of his Tuf Kat, which he received earlier this year, and uses it quite a bit for practice.

Like Jamie stated, Neil and herself have learnt to listen to their guts and follow their feelings (as we all should do as parents) by being their children’s advocate and to think outside the box. Jamie has looked for, researched and pursued therapy for Jace that is not considered traditional medicine. There is more out there than medical doctors, it just takes time, money and effort but in the end it’s all worth it. If you try something and it works some but not all the way, try something else. Jamie stated, as parents we know our children and what’s best for them, we are holding our children’s future in our hands, so handle it wisely.

As they say, Don’t fear the strongest, fear the one who will never give up.”
