Magic show was great

How does he do that? – John Kaplan of AbracaDAZZLE! Magic Show demonstrates one of the classic numbers keeping a little girl hanging high up in the air in the course of his 90-minute show in Botha on Saturday


Another week has gone by and getting closer to camping season. Some of the camp grounds have already opened. So, in about two weeks is the Victoria Day Long weekend, and all the campgrounds will be reopened. It’s sure going to seem nice after such a long cold winter we had this year. The green grass is starting to show up nicely now, and the buds for pussy willows are starting to form on trees, so it wouldn’t be long before the trees will be green again and people will be out in their gardens and running lawnmowers. Looking good.

There are “Thank Yous” going out to everyone that stopped by No Frills and WalMart to purchase coronations, bouquets, and planted pots, thanks as well for the donations. This goes to support the MS Society. Also a big thank you goes out to Lee Shephard and her crew for donating their time in doing this.

Also a big thank you for everyone that attended the AbracaDazzle show on Saturday, May 7. This money will be put towards the cement floor for the arena. Hopefully everyone enjoyed themselves at this magic show.

Come out on Friday May 13 at 8p.m. to the Botha Hall and take in the music from the band called Gaetz Valley Band. They are a great band. So come on out everyone and join the Old-Timers Club that evening. This is a pot luck event so please bring something with you and come out for a great evening.

Bingo Night is Tuesday May 10, so come on out and spend a great evening. Who knows you could be  the next big jack pot winner. This game starts at 7:15 p.m at the Botha Seniors’ Centre.

Don’t forget to stop by the seniors’ centre Wednesday mornings at 10 a.m. and have a fresh hot cup of coffee with them. It’s a great time.

The next quilting day is Monday, May 30. They gather at the seniors’ centre at 9:30 a.m. every second and last Monday of each month. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Church services are Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. with Reverend Susan Bowyer officiating. So come out and take in a great service.

Also a big thank you goes out to everyone that attended the Botha Mother’s Day Breakfast. Hopefully all mothers out there had a great day.
