Last old time dance until fall


Here we are in June already, boy this year is going fast again, and the children and staff from Botha School are getting excited for another school year to come to an end. But with June upon us now, the students and staff are getting ready for their final exams. Here’s wishing everyone good luck on their finals and the Grade 12 departmental exams as they reach the end of their public school years.

With Father’s Day coming up on June 19th, let’s all start thinking about doing something special for Dad on his special day. Hopefully it’s nice weather for that weekend.

Come join the Bingo group the evening of June 21th at 7:15p.m. Early Bird Bingo starts then at the Senior Centre and everyone is welcome to come out with your dobbers. Who knows, you could be the next big winner.

On June 10th, this coming Friday, come on out for the last Old Time Dance, until fall. The Peace River Ramblers will be the entertaining band for the evening. So gather up your items and come on out for a great evening of entertainment.  Please bring something with you to share for the luncheon. These dances are held at the Botha Hall and start at 8 p.m. With this dance they are holding a Hawaiian theme, so wear something with that theme in mind. It will be a fun night for everyone, so please come out to the last dance before fall. The Old Time Dance Club would like to wish everyone a great summer.

With the rest of the year going so fast, August will be here before we know it. So start planning now to attend the Botha Centennial weekend, held August 12-14th. It will be a great weekend and a person can see the Underwood Project. This sounds really exciting and a great machine to see, so plan for the whole weekend spent in Botha, with lots of fun things to do. The centennial committee’s next meeting is on June 9th at 3:30p.m. at the senior centre, so please attend this meeting.

Let’s not forget Wednesday mornings starting at 10 a.m. Coffee is served, so take time away from your busy schedules and come out and have a great relaxing time with your friends and neighbors. These are held at the Senior Centre.

Come on out with your quilting items the morning of June 13th at 9:30 a.m. This is a Monday and they would love to see everyone come out. These are held at the Senior Centre.

Sunday mornings, let’s all meet at the Botha United Church for another great sermon from Reverend Susan Bowyer. Services start at 9 a.m. and everyone is invited out to be with them. Services will be held every Sunday in June, July and August at 9 hope to see everyone come on out Sunday mornings.
