Old-time dance Sunday in Botha

By Louise Bellair

Unfortunately winter really set in hard this week with lots of snow and cold temperatures this week, but one thing good is that hunters all around can track their game easier now, with all this snow. So good luck to all the hunters that haven’t finished filling all their tags yet. Happy hunting. Also, everyone that plays in the snow for snow activities will love this weather. Have fun.

Botha community would like to express sympathy to Margaret Turner and family on the passing of Raymond on Tuesday, Nov. 9.Raymond passed away peacefully at Burnaby, B.C.

Also sympathy is extended out to Margaret Turner and family, also Glenn Turner and family on the recent passing of Eva Turner at Hinton A.B. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Turners were residents of Botha for many years.

Church services continue at 11 a.m. on Sundays at the Botha United Church. Reverend Susan Bowyer officiating.

On Sunday, Nov. 28, at 1:30 p.m., come on out and enjoy some dancing at the Botha Hall. These “Old-Time Dances” are great to attend and everyone has fun. Please ladies, bring a salad or desert with you. Everyone is invited to attend.

Hot coffee is on! Come out Wednesday mornings at 10 a.m., come and join your neighbors for a hot, refreshing pot of coffee. Hunters, snowmobilers, or quadders, if you’re around stop by and warm up over a cup of coffee. It’s a great time. Everyone is invited to stop by and warm up.

Then Wednesday afternoons, starting at 1:30 p.m., come out and join your neighbors in a game of carpet bowling. Everyone is invited to this activity. These are held at the seniors’ centre.

Then Thursday evenings, at 7 p.m., let’s not forget about floor curling. Come out, one and all and enjoy a game with your neighbors. This is also held at the seniors’ centre.
