Harvest in full force as seasons begin to change

BOTHA

As we slide into fall, harvest is in full force, gardens are coming in, it’s freezing at nights, daylight is getting shorter, and all the leaves are either falling or changing colours.

It definitely looks and feels like fall now. Where did summer go? Fall officially started last Friday.

We would like to wish Jean Jackson a happy birthday for Thursday. Hope you have a fantastic day, Jean.

The next old-time dance is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 14, with the Grassroots Band entertaining for the evening. These dances start at 7:30 p.m. at the Botha Hall. So hopefully everyone can come out and have a great time, kicking your feet up to the great music. It’s a pot-luck lunch, so bring your favourite dish to share with everyone.

All are invited to another exciting Early Bird bingo Tuesday (Oct. 11), beginning at 7:15 p.m.

Church services are held every Thursday evening, starting at 7 p.m.

Two activities happen each Wednesday in Botha. Coffee is ready at 10 a.m. for coffee time at the senior centre. Then, starting at 1:30 p.m., is carpet bowling, which is a fun way to exercise among friends.

Calling all quilters: the second and last Monday of each month is quilting time. Even if you have never quilted before, you’re invited to take part.

Calling all seniors to attend a special meeting: the Botha meetings are the first Monday of each month, with a potluck meal at noon. The next one is this coming Monday (Oct. 3).

Before the snow starts falling, why not gather a group together and come out to Botha ball diamond for a game. Phone Ken or Wendy at 403-742-8184 to reserve the diamond.

The Botha Hall is a great place to host special occasions. The hall has a new paint job inside and a great sound system. Phone Marsha Mailer at 403-742-2559 for reservations.
