Remembrance Day is Nov. 11, so let us all take the time out to remember our veterans that fought in the wars for us all, and lost their lives, so we can have our freedom. Please attend a Remembrance Day service that are held around the country.

Church services have changed their time to 11 a.m. on Sunday, instead of 1 p.m., so please take note of this time change. This new time will continue until the end of February 2011. Reverend Susan Bowyer is officiating. Everyone is welcome to attend.

There is also a change of time for Bingo, too. The early bird Bingo will be starting at 7:15 p.m. instead of 7:30. So come on out and try out your Bingo hand. The next game will be Nov. 23th.

On Nov. 12 come on out and enjoy the Old-Time Dance at 8 p.m. at the hall. Please bring something to eat and come out and enjoy the music and kick your feet up. Everyone is invited to come out and have some fun.

On Monday, Nov. 15, why not come out and take in a game of military whist. This is a great game and everyone who attends has fun. So please join them at the seniors’ centre, at 1:30 p.m.

Don’t forget about Wednesday mornings starting at 10 a.m., come on out and have coffee with your neighbours. These are held at the senior’ centre.

Then Wednesday afternoons, come and join a game of carpet bowling starting at 1:30 p.m. Come on out and have a good time. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Thursday evenings, starting at 7 p.m., come out and enjoy yourself at a game of floor curling. These are held at the seniors’ centre as well.

Christmas is only seven weeks away, so why not phone Marsha at 403-742-2559 to reserve the Botha Hall. They have a great place to have a Christmas get together.

Thanks to all that attended the Botha Christmas Craft Show and the Heartland Knitter Retreat. Hopefully, everyone had a great weekend.

The winners of the baskets were:

Basket #1 – Bonnie Clarkson, basket #2 – Sandy Greenlee , basket #3 – Chris Orr

Congratulations to all.
