Nice to know your neighbour

I was in Edmonton this past weekend and was surprised that they had so much more snow on Saturday, though I have still had to scrape my windshield for the past few days the weather seems to be holding.

Going to the city always makes me appreciate the quiet of small town living, we often forget how lucky we are to know the people next door.

The Botha Senior Centre continues with carpet bowling Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m., floor curling is Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m., there will be no military whist until January, as well they will be hosting bingo on Dec. 8, the doors open at 6:30 p.m.

The Old Time Dance Club is kick’in up their heels Nov. 29, this is an afternoon dance beginning at 1:30 p.m.

The Botha United church continues to hold worship at 11a.m. on Sundays.

There are no classes at Botha school this Friday due to parent-teacher interviews.

Just so you know the Botha school Christmas concert will be Dec. 16 at the Botha hall. There will be a New Year’s eve dance at the Botha hall this year, so be sure to mark it on your calender.

That’s it for Botha this week. Have a great day.
