Happy Groundhog Day to everyone in the community

Is the groundhog going to see its shadow or not, who knows?

BOTHA BOOSTER –– Groundhog Day takes place tomorrow, Feb. 2. So is the groundhog going to see its shadow or not, who knows.

Brenda Klatt’s birthday is this coming Saturday, Feb. 4 so happy birthday Brenda, here’s hoping you have a fantastic day.

This coming Monday, Feb. 6, all seniors should come out to the Senior Centre for the monthly meeting at noon. This is first startout potluck luncheon, so please make something or bring a dish to share with all present at the meeting. Once luncheon is over, we will have the meeting.

Carpet bowling happens every Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 1 p.m. so please come on out and join in the game.

Coffee is every Wednesday at 10 a.m. so come and join your friends and enjoy a fresh cup.

Bingo evening is tonight. Grab your dabbers and come down to the Senior Centre around 6:30 p.m. and join in the fun. The balls start rolling at 7:15 p.m.

For snow removal please call the Village Office and make some arrangements. They will be happy to assist you.

Botha Transfer Station is open every Tuesday from 1-5:30 p.m., and again every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon. So hopefully this is convenient for everyone.

The next Old Tyme Dance is on Thursday, Feb. 26 at 1:30 p.m. with the Ralph and Friends band entertaining that afternoon. What a fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Phone Shaun Derr at 403-742-4811 to book the Botha Hall for your special event in the near future.

Make sure you get out and enjoy the Ice Arena before spring sets in. With it being such a long cold winter, so far we finally get some nice weather except for all the fog, who knows when the weather will become so cold again, it could be soon, so who knows when we’ll get spring. So get out and have some fun on the ice. Hopefully the weather will stay nice as farmers soon go into their calving season. We just hope for everyone’s sake the weather will remain nice during this time.

Happy Groundhog Day everyone!
