Halloween and hunting ‘exciting times of year’

What an exciting event happening tonight for all ages. It’s Halloween!

What an exciting event happening tonight for all ages. It’s Halloween! So please drive carefully tonight, as the Halloween creatures will be overexcited, running around tonight. This is a really exciting evening for all children of our area, so watch out for them as they might forget the safety habits. Have fun, everyone.

Botha Floor Curling Club would like to congratulate all the winners of the last floor-curling tournament that just happened last Thursday. Hopefully, everyone had fun, and thank-you for coming.

Tomorrow is another new month, starting with another exciting time of the year. It’s hunting season, so we wish all hunters out there the best of luck and happy hunting.

This coming weekend, please make sure you make it out to the Botha Hall on Saturday, starting at 9 a.m., for the Botha Christmas Craft Show. They have a lot of neat items and it’s a great way to start your Christmas shopping.

Church services have changed this coming Sunday (Nov. 4) to 11 a.m. This time will continue until the end of February 2013. Rev. Susan Bowyer leads the worship and all are invited. There will not be a service on Nov. 11, though, so please take a note of that, as it’s Remembrance Day and the pastor has other commitments.

Two events are happening next Tuesday, Nov. 6, that hopefully everyone can attend. At 11:30 a.m., it’s the monthly Botha meeting at the Botha Senior Centre. After the meeting, there will be a pot-luck luncheon, so please bring one of your favourite dishes with you to share with everyone. All seniors are welcome to attend these meetings. The club is also looking for new members, so feel free to join them.

At 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, it’s bingo time, and no one has won the big jackpot yet, so it keeps climbing. The loonie pot is also growing, so come out and try out your luck.

Everyone had fun at the old-time Halloween dance on Sunday. Congratulations to all the winners. Everyone looked great.

The next dance is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 9, starting at 7:30 p.m. The Gaetz Valley Band will be the entertaining band for the evening. Plans are for a pooled lunch, so please bring sandwiches or dessert to share.

Don’t forget about coffee time every Wednesday morning at 10 o’clock. They would love to see everyone come out for a cup or two.

That afternoon at 1 p.m., it’s carpet-bowling time. So make sure you come out for a great time.

On Thursday evening, starting at 7 p.m., it’s floor-curling time. They would love to see everyone come out. All three of those activities take place at the Botha Senior Centre.

Military Whist happens at 1:30 at the Botha Senior Centre on Monday, Nov. 19. It’s a fun-filled card game, so organizers would like to see old and new players participate. For the newcomers, please be advised that the veterans would love to teach everyone the game.

The time changes when you go to bed Saturday night, so don’t forget to change your clocks back one hour before going to bed.

Just think … people get one extra hour of sleep that night. That’s right on.
