LOUISE BELLAIR

A Happy Belated Birthday wish goes out to McKenzie Hankins for Friday May 27th. Hope you had a great birthday McKenzie.

Also I would like to congratulate all the grade 12 graduates on their graduation Saturday May 28th. The Botha Community is very proud of all their graduates from their community. Work well done, and best wishes on all your future endeavours coming up in the future.

Come on out to the Botha Hall for another great time with the Old Time Dance Club. The Peace River Ramblers will be entertaining the crowd on Friday June 10th, starting at 8p.m. They will be having a Hawaiian Theme that evening, so wear something with that theme in mind and please bring something to share with everyone for a lunch. Thank you. Also this will be the last dance until fall, now so please come out and have a great evening with everyone.

The first part of last week was very beautiful weather with lots of sun, which turned into clouds and very welcoming rain showers, now sun and warm weather again which is nice. So here’s hoping all farmers and gardeners have a great growing season this year.

Come on out with your dobbers for another great evening of Early Bird Bingo on Tuesday June 7th, starting at 7:15p.m.These are held at the Botha Senior Centre every second Tuesday evening. So come out everyone and have a great evening, with your friends and neighbors. Who knows you could be the next big winner.

Everyone is invited out every Sunday at 9a.m. to the Botha United Church, to take in a great sermon. Reverend Susan Bowyer is officiating. They would love to see everyone come out and worship with them.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the M.S. Walk on May 29th.This walk was in Red Deer this year, and the weather was great for this walk, which I’m sure everyone enjoyed. A big thank you to everyone for doing this for them.

Come out Wednesday mornings starting at 10 a.m. for a hot refreshing cup of coffee with your friends and neighbors. It’s a great place to meet and visit your friends. So come on out to the senior centre.

The months are flying by so fast, and before we know it, it will be August again. The Centennial Weekend is going to be held the weekend of August 12-14th, with lots of activities to take in. There will be free camping, so please plan to attend this weekend. A person will be able to see a replica of Canada’s First Flying Machine. The Underwood project is now accepting donations so they can complete the replica, and very much appreciated.

The next centennial meeting will be held on Thursday June 9th at 3:30p.m. at the Botha Senior Centre. So if you can make it, please do so. Thank you. If you cannot attend these meetings and would like to see how things are coming, or can help out please contact Sherri Larter at 403-742-8214 or Josie Mailer at 403-742-2170. All help is truly appreciated.
