No dance on Boxing Day, military whist to resume in the new year

LOUISE BELLAIR / Botha Booster

First I would like to wish you, and yours a very Merry Christmas.

Hopefully the weather stays reasonably good and all the highways stay great for everyone traveling. So have a safe and memorable holiday, and that Santa is good to everyone. Please take the time out away from your busy holiday and remember the real reason for the season.

Everyone is invited out on Christmas Eve to celebrate the birth of Jesus on Dec. 24th at 5 p.m. and come out and take in the Christmas Eve service at the Botha United Church. Their regular service is held Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. with Reverend Susan Bowyer officiating.

There will not be a Boxing Day Dance for the Old-Time Dance Club. Sorry about this inconvenience. The next dance will be Jan. 14, 2011. This will be held on at Botha Hall at 8 p.m. with the Bad Landers playing. This is a potluck dinner, so please bring something for dinner and come out and enjoy the music. So sorry about the misunderstanding in last week’s paper, but there will be no dance held on Boxing Day.
