Friday marks return of old-time dances



Botha Booster

With the new law about the use of cellphones while driving now in effect in Alberta, let’s practise safety for everyone on our highways.

The first old-time dance of this year is Friday at 7:30 p.m., with Country Gold Band providing the music. Everyone is asked to bring something to share for the luncheon.

Keep an eye open for notice of a centennial wrap-up meeting this month.

Toward the end of September, there will be a BBC meeting. New members and new ideas are wanted.

Bingo evening is Tuesday, so grab your dabbers and come out to the senior centre at 7:15 p.m. The jackpot is growing.

Church services are held every Thursday evening, with Rev. Susan Bowyer officiating. Everyone is invited to the 7 p.m. service.

For Botha Hall bookings, phone Marsha Mailer at 403-742-2559.

To book the Botha ball diamond before the snow starts falling again, phone Ken or Wendy at 403-742-8184.

Elections officials will be knocking on your door Monday, Sept. 19, so be sure your name is on their list.
